Lightning Talks: How Does your Work Interrogate the Form of the Book through Time, Sequence or Technology?

The 2012 CBAA student committee invites proposals for a student panel of lightning talks. The
CBAA's goal with this student panel is to engage Book Art students to share innovative practices,
discuss artistic challenges, and find ways to support each other while enriching the academic field
of Book Art through shared knowledge.

This year's student panel will be centered on a series of Lightning Talks. There are 12 spots
available; each spot will run 5 minutes, with the panel equaling one hour in total. Each speaker
must submit a total of 10 digital images of work and a written proposal of 250 words about
how the work relates to this year's conference topic of ”Time, Sequence & Technology." Your
presentation can focus on any single aspect, or combination of aspects, of the theme. The images
will be combined into one slideshow. Presenters will be chosen through a blind review process
by a panel of readers. Presenters must be student members of CBAA in order to be eligible to
participate in this panel, and must be enrolled as a full-time student in an academic degree-
granting program for the 2011-12 year. We hope this will be a lively, engaging way to share work
and to learn what our peers are discovering in the field.

How to submit

All proposals must be submitted via the online submission manager and must include both the
written abstract and the 10 images in one document. The document should be in either PDF or
DOC (Word Document) format. Detailed instructions for formatting your files can be downloaded here.
Student members will need to submit a copy of their current student I.D. or a letter from their institution
stating that they are currently enrolled in order to be eligible to be on the student panel.
Submit your verification here.

In an effort to promote original scholarship in the field of academic book art, abstracts submitted to
CBAA should not be concurrently submitted for consideration to another conference.


Abstracts MUST be received no later than June 1st, 2011. Submissions received after this date
will not be considered for acceptance.

June 1, 2011: Deadline for submission of proposals

August 1, 2011: Notification of acceptance or rejection of proposals

September 1, 2011: Deadline for confirmation of acceptance by presenters.
