        From: James O'Sullivan 
        Subject: Electronic Literature 2019 at UCC

I would like to remind members of this group that there is still time to 
submit to the Electronic Literature Organization Conference & Media Arts 
Festival 2019, to be hosted in July at University College Cork, Ireland.

The deadline for submissions is December 21st, 11pm GMT.

Details of the call can be found on the ELO2019 website: 

Or as follows:

Proposals are now being accepted for presentations and exhibition pieces 
at the annual Electronic Literature Organization Conference and Media 
Arts Festival, to be held July 15-17, 2019 at University College Cork, 
Ireland. Electronic literature, or e-lit, refers to literary works 
wherein computation forms some essential part of the aesthetic. #ELO19 
offers an opportunity to share research and creative contributions 
within an engaging, collegial atmosphere comprising e-lit scholars and 
practitioners from across the globe.

The theme for this year’s ELO gathering is “peripheries”: delegates are 
invited to explore the edges of literary and digital culture, including 
emerging traditions, indeterminate structures and processes, fringe 
communities of praxis, effaced forms and genres, marginalised bodies, 
and perceptual failings. #ELO19 will mark the first time that the ELO 
conference has been hosted by an Irish institution: join us for this 
momentous gathering!

Conference Papers

We invite proposals of ~500 words for conference presentations. 
Proposals may focus on any topic relating to the wider field of 
electronic literature, multimodal writing, digital art, literary games, 
or new media aesthetics. Submissions are welcome across the following 
two formats:

I. 20-minute presentation of a single paper by one or more authors;

II. 90-minute panel proposal, incorporating three separate but related 
abstracts on a consistent topic. In addition to individual abstracts, 
panel proposals should be accompanied by ~200 word summaries of their 
overall research emphasis.

Please note that we are not in a position to accommodate requests by 
presenters who wish to present on a specific date.

Please submit proposals using EasyChair: 

Submissions should include the title of the submission, the name(s) and 
affiliation(s) of contributor(s), biographical notes, and a 500-word 

Submissions will be peer-reviewed, with authors being notified in early 

Exhibition Pieces

We invite proposals of digital artworks and e-lit pieces to be featured 
as part of #ELO19's media arts exhibition to be hosted at the Glucksman 
Gallery (http://elo2019.ucc.ie/glucksman/)
throughout and beyond the conference. All forms of electronic 
literature, multimodal writing, digital art, and screen fiction will be 
considered. We will also consider performance pieces, for which a 
session will be scheduled if required. Submissions should conform to the 
following structure:

I. Author name(s), affiliation(s), and biographical notes;

II. 500-word artist statement detailing the aesthetic intentions and 
structure of the piece;

III. Technical specification providing exact details of what will be 
required to facilitate the work’s inclusion in the exhibition. Technical 
specifications should include information on the materials, 
technologies, and spatial requirements necessary, and what they will 
require the Gallery to provide.

Please submit proposals using EasyChair: 

Submissions will be considered by the exhibition’s curators, with 
artists being notified in early 2019.

Conference Proceedings

After #ELO19, selected papers will be invited to submit to a 
conference-themed special issue of the Electronic Book Review 


Five competitive UCC/ELO bursaries of 500 EUR will be offered to 
students and independent scholars/artists looking to attend #ELO19. 
Eligible candidates interested in applying for UCC/ELO bursaries should 
include a 500-word statement with their submission materials, justifying 
why they merit such an award.

In addition, the Digital Humanities Summer Institute 
(http://dhsi.org) offers several bursaries to assist graduate students 
and junior scholars from the DHSI community to attend #ELO19, assisting 
by defraying some travel and lodging costs. Preference will be given to 
those presenting at the gathering. Candidates interested in applying for 
DHSI-sponsored bursaries should do so at https://www.regonline.ca/DHSI-ELO2019.

University College Cork and the Electronic Literature Organization 
regret that they will not be in a position to fund additional delegates 
beyond these bursaries.
