Sirens attendees prepare abstracts of their proposals—summaries of their topics, arguments, and conclusions—which are then reviewed by our independent vetting board. That board selects the proposals that will be included in the Sirens programming schedule each year. Our programming schedule is about the voices of our attendees, and we think that this model ensures that we feature those voices prominently at Sirens.
The Sirens online submission system is closed for the 2017 conference. Thank you to everyone who made a proposal! The vetting board will provide decisions by June 12; if you have any questions, please write to (programming at sirensconference.org).
