For those who are presenting, this note is a gentle reminder that the paper deadline for the preconference is two weeks away. If you’re a presenter, please submit your paper in PDF format to the organizers via the <distribution.matters.preconf AT gmail DOT com> email address by 25 April (one month before the event). As you adapt your abstract into a lengthier paper, please observe the following rules of thumb:
- Keep papers to between 2,000 and 8,000 words (all-inclusive); that word count should include a 150-word abstract.
- Write for colleagues from other scholarly traditions—avoid disciplinary jargon to the greatest extent possible.
