Presentation and Publication Opportunities

CELA 2015 features thirteen tracks, in addition to the eleven standard CELA tracks, there are two conference theme tracks:

incite Change | Change insight Special Conference Theme Publication Track

We invite authors to submit research, scholarship and creative activity that incites change and changes insight. This is an opportunity for authors to be included in a special peer-reviewed conference theme publication, available at the time of the conference. All authors submitting to this track are expected to submit papers for review.

incite Change | Change insight Film Track

We invite presenters to screen a portion of an entire digital film. Presenters might present a short film in its entirety; discuss a film’s production with screening of clips; or present pedagogical or research outcomes from film making with screening of clips. Authors submitting to this track are expected to present all or part of a film at the conference during the Thursday, March 26, 2015 evening film session. Authors have the option of submitting a full paper for review to either the conference theme publication track or one of the eleven standard CELA tracks.

Abstracts not selected for presentation in the conference theme tracks will be referred to appropriate standard tracks for review.
