Calls for Papers and Participation for the 2016 TaPRA Conference

The 2016 TaPRA Conference will take place in Bristol, between 5-7 September 2016.

Below is a list of all TaPRA Working Groups’ Calls for Papers/Participation.

The deadline for submission of proposals is the 18th April 2016.

Only one proposal may be submitted for the TaPRA 2016 Conference at the University of Bristol. It is not permitted to submit multiple proposals or submit the same proposal to several Calls for Papers. All presenters must be TaPRA members, i.e. registered for the conference; this includes presentations given by Skype or other media broadcast even where the presenter may not physically attend the conference venue. If your paper has been accepted, yet you have not registered for the Conference by the final registration deadline of 8th August 2016, we will deem you no longer intend to participate and present at TaPRA 2016.
