The Flow Conference (Oct. 26 -29, 2006; Austin, TX) -- a series of
roundtable discussions with topics created by Flow columnists organized
the future of television and media culture -- is now accepting submissions
join a roundtable. Deadline for submission is: June 15, 2006.
The goal of the Flow Conference is conversation. There are no plenary
sessions, and participants are asked to submit short position papers (not
full-length essays). We want to promote discussion amongst scholars,
members of the media industries, media activists, fans, and policy-makers

The conference program will include the institutional affiliation and
paper titles of each participant, and we will provide web space for
presenters to circulate position papers and any supplemental research or
other supporting materials.
