"The Rod Serling Conference," an interdisciplinary conference dedicated to the lasting works of Rod Serling, is set for November, 2013, in Los Angeles, CA.

In contrast to previous conferences held on the Ithaca College campus, where Serling taught from 1967 through 1975, the 2013 Conference will be able to take advantage of the industry home where Serling created so many of his masterpieces for television and film. Ithaca College's Los Angeles Program will help to facilitate this year's conference.

This will be the fifth Rod Serling Conference, and as in the past, it will offer research and anecdotes about Rod Serling and an opportunity to view some of the classics of early television. Additionally, this year's presentation will include industry leaders who count Serling among their primary influences and actors and other professionals who worked directly with Serling.
Come and explore that unique "dimension of imagination" that was the creative work, teaching, and public conscience of Rod Serling. Multi-media presentations, panels, guided discussion groups, and other unique conference proposals for the 2013 conference are welcomed.
