The conference will begin at 13.30 on Sunday 14th July 2013 and will finish at 18.00 on Tuesday 16th July 2013. Registration will be from 12.30 on the opening day of the conference.

Important – Please Note: The ethos of the ‘Revenge’ project places strong emphasis on 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 conference so as to facilitate the exchange of perspectives for which the conference strives, and which any publication should clearly demonstrate. Failure to attend for the duration of the meeting will automatically exclude eligibility for inclusion in any of the project publications.

Presentations should be of no more than 20 minutes duration (3000 words max). Responses to Papers should be of no more than 10 minutes duration. Work-in-Progress presentations should be of no more than 15 minutes duration. The time allotted to workshops will be considered on an individual basis. Other forms of presentation will be considered on request.

Please note: Power point presentations are neither encouraged nor desired. The facility to show images and clips can be provided but the use of Powerpoint to show large amounts of text has been banned from all the projects we organise. You are advised to take note of this as you prepare your submission. Presenters are also strongly encouraged not to read their papers verbatim: draft papers will be available on the web site prior to the conference beginning. We hope that presenters will instead speak to the significant points raised in their papers.

Abstracts are to be submitted by Friday 8th February 2013. These should be emailed either as an attachment or in the body of an email to the Organising Chairs:  Charles W. Nuckolls 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.

Both the 300 word abstract and the draft paper will be available on this web site before the conference commences. Papers will be available in downloadable .pdf format.

revpub
All conference papers will be eligible (subject to conditions) for publication in an ISBN eBook with the Inter-Disciplinary Press.

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.

Style Sheets
In preparing your papers, please pay strict attention to the following style sheets

Mansfield College occupies one of the most attractive sites in Oxford. The 1886 buildings, which house all the College’s public rooms, are regarded as amongst the finest work of the important Victorian architect, Basil Champneys. Mansfield’s spacious site is close to all the libraries and shops, yet in a quiet position near to the University parks and River Cherwell.

The location of the venue can be found on the map provided in the venue and accommodation section.

We would like to note that whilst the conference is being held at an Oxford University College, it is not being formally sponsored by the University. Please do not contact the College with questions about the conference. All inquiries about the conference should be directed to Rob Fisher.
