Applicants are asked to submit a 300-word abstract in English or Italian, accompanied by a short CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 November 2014.
Successful applicants will be notified by January 2015 and must submit their paper electronically by 30 June 2015.
In order to maximise discussion time, all conference papers will be circulated in advance and discussed by panellists before the debate is opened to the audience.
Papers may be submitted in English, Italian, French or German, but the working languages of the conference will be English and Italian, with simultaneous interpreting available. Participants who submit papers in languages other than English or Italian will be asked to also send a 3-page summary in English. As in previous years, a selection of papers will be published in English after the conference.
The conference will take place over three days (10-12 September 2015), with the first and third days devoted to academic presentations and discussions. In order to give participants a direct experience of one highly significant landscape, the second day will consist of an organised visit to the Asiago Plateau, where the keynote address will be held.
The opening day of the conference will be hosted by the Bruno Kessler Institute in Trento, and the closing day by the University of Padua, with an organised coach transfer via Asiago on the intermediate day. The transfer will be free of charge for all registered delegates. Information on accommodation in Trento (for the first night) and Padua (for the second) will be circulated to confirmed participants in January 2015.
A limited number of bursaries for travel and accommodation will be available for participants whose institution does not provide conference funding. Applicants should please indicate whether they would like to request financial support.
