** Apologies for crossposting. **
***Deadline Extended to Nov. 7, 2017***

We are now accepting proposals for the 2018 Digital Praxis Posters in Kansas City, Missouri! The Digital Praxis Posters provide a space at CCCC for scholars and practitioners from across our field to share and discuss their innovative work with digital technologies. The DPP sessions invite a variety of work ranging from experimentation with new digital tools to the methodologies shaping research using these tools. 


Last year’s sessions were both very well attended and highly interactive. We do our best to provide an engaged audience by setting up two rounds of posters back to back. During the first round, second-round poster presenters are part of the audience. During the second round, first-round poster presenters are part of the audience. Of course, many others join in as well! DPP sessions are always filled with deep and engaging conversations about your project and the projects of others. We encourage presenters to involve graduate and undergraduate students in the preparation and delivery of their poster sessions. One goal of the DPP has always been to meet and talk to students from the classes or organizations where digital praxis is enacted! 


Proposals are invited in the following categories:
  1. Demonstration of digital tool
  2. Digital pedagogy assignment
  3. Research on or using digital tools
  4. Digital facets of community and advocacy
  5. Creative digital projects
  6. Languaging, laboring, and transforming digital spaces
  
Your participation in the DPP will NOT count as your one presentation at CCCC. Posters are generally held in a designated area during two sessions on Thursday  and Friday.  Poster proposals will be reviewed in parallel with the formal CCCC review process, and invited presenters will receive feedback from reviewers. After the review, we will provide accepted presenters with an official letter indicating that your proposal was reviewed and that you will be presenting in Kansas City. Names will also be in the Digital Praxis Posters program (handed out on site) and in the CCCC online program.


If you would like to propose a poster presentation (as a team or individually), please fill out the form at this address:

Research Network Forum at 4C Proposals due Oct. 31st

RESEARCH NETWORK FORUM at CCCC

April 6, 2016 from 8:30AM – 5:00PM in Houston, TX

Proposal Deadline: Saturday, October 31, 2015

Submit proposals for Work In Process here:

Please join the Research Network Forum as a Work-in-Progress Presenter and/or serve as a Discussion Leader and/or as a publication Editor.

The Research Network Forum, founded in 1987, is a pre-convention forum at CCCC which provides an opportunity for established researchers, new researchers, and graduate students to discuss their current projects and receive mentoring from colleagues in the discipline. The forum is free to CCCC convention registrants. As in past years, RNF 2016 features morning plenary addresses from Cindy Selfe, Howard Tinsberg, and Todd Taylor focusing on “Writing Strategies for Action,” the 2016 CCCC theme.

The RNF welcomes Work-in-Progress Presenters (WiPPs) at any stage of their research and at any position in the composition/rhetoric field (graduate student, junior faculty, tenured faculty, administrator, and/or independent scholar). During roundtable discussions, WiPPs are grouped by thematic clusters where they discuss their current projects at both a morning and an afternoon roundtable session in 8 – 10 minute presentations and benefit from the responses of other researchers. Unless otherwise indicated, WiPPs are scheduled for both morning & afternoon sessions. Collaborating researchers are placed at separate tables to ensure the most networking opportunities on their research projects.

Discussion Leaders (DLs) lead the thematic roundtables and mentor WiPPs; this role is key to the RNF. We ask that Discussion Leaders are experienced, established researchers. Serving as a Discussion Leader provides a valuable service to the composition/rhetoric community. Discussion Leaders may serve at the morning session, afternoon session, or all day, and they are welcome to also participate as WiPPs.

Participants also include Editors of printed and online composition/rhetoric publications (journals, edited collections, and book series), who discuss publishing opportunities for completed works-in-progress in an open, roundtable format. We encourage Editors to bring copies of the publications they edit/publish and announcements for display at the RNF meeting. Editors are encouraged to serve as Discussion Leaders and may also participate as WiPPs.

To submit a proposal (open August 15 to October 31), visit our website, http://researchnetworkforum.org

Please fill out a form for each of the roles in which you would like to participate—Work-in-Progress Presenter, Discussion Leader, and/or Editor. You may appear on the RNF Program in addition to having a speaking role at the Conference on College Composition & Communication.

CFP for Computers and Writing – Due Oct. 26th (extension)

See http://siteslab.org/cwcon/2016/ for more information

Our theme for the 2016 Computers and Writing conference is Crossing Wires: Reaching Across Campus, Between Disciplines, and Into Communities. With this theme we ask you to consider the ways in which new media and digital technologies enable us to expand our horizons, both in terms of our scholarship and our pedagogy. In particular, we invite proposals that reconsider traditional academic boundaries, whether those be boundaries between disciplines, between the campus community and the local community, or geographical boundaries. Conversely, proposals might also consider how our use of technology creates boundaries to achieving pedagogical goals and (perhaps unintentionally) serves as a gatekeeper to collaborative efforts and knowledge dissemination.  The following list of potential topics should not be considered exhaustive, but rather a jumping off point for consideration.

  • Creation and or use of collaborative technologies in the humanities
  • Trans/Cross/Inter-disciplinary work
  • Using technology to build connections between colleges and local communities
  • Using technology to teach writing across the curriculum
  • K-12 college connections/collaborations
  • Global conversations through technology
  • Innovation in online environments
  • Distributed networks and peer reviewing
  • New curricula, especially those focused on multidisciplinarity
  • New creative forms taking advantage of networked technologies
  • Online and multimodal pedagogical tools
  • Physical and online learning spaces and how they create community

Session Descriptions and Instructions

Computers and Writing 2016 will feature several different session types. In addition to panel presentations, we invite participants to consider proposing a mini-workshop or Digital Showcase presentation this year. Mini-workshops will take place during the concurrent sessions and should teach attendees a new technology, tool, or practice. The Digital Showcase will run in the afternoon during the conference and is an opportunity to demonstrate a technology from a pedagogical perspective or showcase work created by faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. The format will be similar to a poster session, but will require presenters to present some sort of interactive or time-based technology.

The requirements for each session type are listed below. Please note, presenters may have only one speaking role (Panel Presentation, or Mini-Workshop), excluding Digital Showcase Presentations, Roundtables and Half/Full-Day workshop facilitating.

Presentation Types:

  • Roundtables/Lightning Talks- 5 or more presenters, 600 word proposal
  • Individual Presentations- 250 word proposal
  • Panel Presentations- 3-4 presenters, 600 word proposal
  • Digital Showcase: Presenters will use interactive or time-based technology to showcase their pedagogical ideas, research, or creative work within a poster session-style framework.  Presenters must bring own technology. Power and limited portable screens will be available.
  • Mini-Workshop: Within the confines of the 75 minute concurrent sessions, presenters will instruct attendees on a new tool or technological procedure.  Mac and PC computer labs are available
  • Half-Day/Full-day Workshops 600 word proposal AND outline of proposed activities

Pre-conference workshops are intended to involve participants in a technology or issue set that rewards intensive work, giving them opportunities to learn new applications, assessment, and integration of emergent technologies for writing, learning, and collaboration. Workshops should be participatory, and proposals should articulate how attendees will interact with each other, the presenters, and/or technologies involved. If you submit a workshop proposal, please include a document that outlines the proposed timeline of workshop activities. Mac and PC computer labs are available.

Conference Submission Opens: August 31st 

Conference Submission Closes: October 23rd

Notification of Acceptance: December 21st
