For the past nine years, the Renaissance Society of America program has featured a number of sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. At the 2011 RSA meeting (Montreal, 24-26 March 2011), several sessions will continue to follow this interest across several key projects, through a number of thematic touchstones, and in several emerging areas.

For these sessions, we seek proposals in the following general areas, and

a) new technology and research (individual or group projects)

b) new technology and teaching (individual or group projects)

c) new technology and publication (e.g. from the vantage point of authors, traditional and non-traditional publishers)

Proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and/or workshop presentations that focus on these issues and others are welcome.

We are pleased to be able to offer several graduate student travel subventions for presentation on these panels. Those wishing to be considered for the subvention should indicate this in their abstract submission.
