It will showcase artistic works and highlight creative modes of speaking; it will enable investigations of how we make and say; it will provide opportunities to explore how creative artists engage with researchPresentations will generally be brief (five minutes each), themed and organised to encourage the exchange of ideas. Discussions will follow, allowing participants to expand on their ideas and engage with others. Full refereed papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings. Some creative sessions will be longer, and this will be at the discretion of the conference organisers.

Papers are invited in three streams: 1) a refereed scholarly stream; 2) a creative stream; and 3) a general (non-refereed stream).
