DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS EXTENDED TO SUNDAY 15 NOVEMBER!

University of Kent, School of Music and Fine Art, The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, Kent, UK

The BFE invites proposals for its 2016 conference, which will be held at the Historic Dockyard on the banks of the River Medway at Chatham. Proposals on any current research are welcome; papers having a nautical theme would be particularly appropriate, given the surroundings.

Proposals are invited for:

  • Papers (20 minutes with 5–10 minutes for questions)
  • Organised sessions (3 or 4 linked papers around a theme, totalling 1.5 or 2 hours)
  • Round table discussion sessions (3 or 4 shorter presentations, around 15 minutes each, followed by a chaired discussion, totalling 1.5 or 2 hours)
  • Poster or other material for digital display.

Proposals should be submitted in the following formats to enable them to be reviewed anonymously:

Paper proposals: include the name and email address of the proposer, paper title, and abstract (the latter not exceeding 300 words). The name of the proposer should not appear in the abstract.

Organised session proposals: include the names and email addresses of the proposer and the other participants, an overall abstract for the session (not exceeding 300 words), and abstracts for each contributor (no more than 300 words each). Abstracts should not include the names of any of the participants.

Roundtable proposals: include the names and email addresses of the proposer and the other participants (the proposer will be assumed to be the chair unless stated otherwise), an overall abstract for roundtable (not exceeding 300 words), and abstracts for each contributor (no more than 300 words each). Abstracts should not include the names of any of the participants.

Poster/digital display proposals (digital displays will allow research to be shared using electronic posters as well as videos and other media). Include the name and email address of the researcher, a description of the material to be presented (not exceeding 300 words), and a brief description of your technical requirements. The name of the proposer should not appear in the descriptions.

EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 15 NOVEMBER 2015. Successful applicants will be notified in December.
