Our theme for the 2018 Computers and Writing conference is Digital Phronesis: Culture/Code/Play. Often described as “practical wisdom,” phronesis represents an enactment of good judgment guided by both learned knowledge and lived experience. Phronesis comes from our histories, our education, and reflections on our experiences. We encourage submissions to focus on intersections of formal learning and embodied experience.
We also encourage submissions that related to the three main research strands of this year’s conference: digital humanities, game design, and undergraduate research.
Suggested topics for proposals include (but are not limited to):
Session Types and Instructions
Presenters are limited to two (2) speaking roles (marked by asterisks below) but may participate in as many other participant roles as desired:
Panel presentations, roundtable discussions, individual presentations, and poster presentations will be scheduled during 75-minute concurrent sessions, on May 25, 26, or 27. Each presenter can anticipate having 15 to 20 minutes to present. Interactive sessions are encouraged!
Half-day workshops and full-day workshops will run during the preconference on May 24. Half-day workshops will have about 3 hours, and full-day workshops will have 6 to 7 hours.
If you submit a workshop proposal, please identify what technologies or tools participants will need.
Look for our separate CFP for the Undergraduate Research Symposium and Competition on September 5, 2017.
