The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is accepting proposals for individual presentation submissions and complete panels for its annual conference, November 1–4, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Proposals that address any topic within “the long sixteenth century” are invited. The submission deadline is April 15, 2018.

Abstracts (250 words or less) either for individual presentations or complete panels must be submitted online at, using the links at left. The Program Committee asks that you make all requests for AV equipment at the time you submit your abstract, as this must be scheduled in advance and late requests cannot be accommodated due to increased costs. Within four weeks after the April 15 deadline, the Program Committee will notify all those who submitted proposals of its decision.

In recent years the Conference has welcomed poster sessions, and will again this year. Those who are interested in presenting poster sessions should submit their proposals as “papers” to the digital history track. Before submitting poster proposals, please email to obtain a poster session code.

In addition to standard panels, the organizing committee will be accepting proposals for four types of alternate panels:

  • Workshop Option A: Discussion of pre-circulated papers in a workshop format (limit of 4 participants).
  • Workshop Option B: Analysis of thorny translation/paleography questions; pre-circulation not required (limit of 3 participants).
  • Workshop Option C: Examination of a big issue or question with brief comments from presenters and lively audience participation (similar to roundtables with more audience participation; limit of 4 participants).
  • Roundtables sponsored by affiliated societies.

Questions about formats should be directed to

The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a per delegate registration fee (or discounted student fee). There is a small fund for defraying costs for graduate students; the application procedure will be posted at after the Program Committee has completed its work.

The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal. Conference registration fees are non-refundable. Participants who are uncertain if they can attend may want to register on-site, thereby eliminating the problem of having paid for registration and being unable to attend. Advance registration discounts are available online until shortly before a meeting begins. Please note that proposing a session or a paper indicates your commitment to attend. The Committee will not be able to accept every submission.
