The schedule of events for each day will conference at 9.30 and finish at 18.00. Registration will be from 8:30 each day.
Important – Please Note: The ethos of the Transmedia: Storytelling and Beyond project emphasises dialogue with the issues raised by the conference as a whole and engagement with the people attending the conference. These two elements are essential to the inter- and multi-disciplinary nature of the event. Over the past few years the success of our projects has rested on the continual interaction between delegates for the duration of the conference and beyond. The Steering Group feel it is essential that delegates should be present for the duration of the day they have booked to attend so as to facilitate the exchange of perspectives for which the conference strives, and which any publication should clearly demonstrate. Delegates are free to attend for one day only, but those who attend both days will receive a 10% discount on the second day’s registration fee.
Please note: Presenters are strongly encouraged to talk about the research and ideas contained in their papers rather than read the papers verbatim (think of TED Talks as a model). Data projectors are available for showing images and video clips, however presenters should use handouts instead of dense, text-filled powerpoint slides to share other sorts of information. Not only does this allow listeners to engage more fully with the material in the room, it facilitates further reflection on the presentation long after the session ends.
300-word abstracts are to be emailed either as an attachment or in the body of an email to the Organising Chairs: Ann-Marie Cook and Rob Fisher. Attachments may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats. Papers will be minimally double blind peer reviewed (where appropriate); in practice our procedures usually entail that by the time an abstract is accepted, it will have been triple and quadruple blind peer reviewed.
Selected papers may be invited to go forward for development into 20-25 page chapters for publication in a themed ISBN hard copy volume. Our standard model is for such volumes to be strongly dialogical, with chapters showing awareness of and interacting with each other. The decision whether to proceed to hard copy publication will be taken by the Organising Chairs and Steering Group within three weeks of the conference close.
In preparing your paper for publication, please make use of the Inter-Disciplinary Press house style and formatting guides available https://www.interdisciplinarypress.net/style-sheets
