Call for Papers
SCSMI Conference 2019
June 12-15, 2019
Institute for Media & Communication
University of Hamburg
The Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Images invites proposals
for presentations at its annual conference, to be held June 12 to 15, 2019 at
the Institute for Media & Communication, University of Hamburg.
The Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image (SCSMI) fosters
interdisciplinary research within the areas of moving image history,
theory, and aesthetics; cognitive science; and the philosophy of mind and
art. The Society supports dialogue in all directions, so that every
represented discipline may learn from the others. Through exchange, debate,
and collaboration among moving image theorists, historians, analysts,
philosophers, scientists, and artists, SCSMI promotes research into moving
image media and the ways in which such media reflect, shape, and are shaped
by the human mind.
Guidelines for Submission
A proposal may be for a long-paper presentation, a short-paper
presentation, a poster/demonstration or an author-meets-critics-panel.
Under some circumstances, the conference committee may assign you a
presentation format different from the one you have selected in your
(1) Long Paper Presentation
A 50-minute session divided between a 25-minute presentation and a
25-minute Q&A. This format is reserved for well-developed projects that
present conceptually complicated ideas or extensive research data.
(2) Short Papers
A 25-minute session divided between a presentation of 15 minutes or less
with the remaining time used for discussion. This format is suitable for
works in progress or research that may be presented more succinctly.
(3) Poster Presentation
Any form of research display or demonstration. Posters may present
empirical research, scholarship with a single question or thesis, short
movies, essay films, or interactive installations. Presenters will display
and discuss their research during a plenary session.
(4) Author-meets-critics-panel (AMC)
An AMC is a pre-constituted panel focusing on outstanding publications of
interest to the society, such as a monograph or empirical study offering
seminal new insights. The proposal should include the names of the panel
chair, the name of the participating author and 1-3 critics who have agreed
to participate. The proposer should not be the author of the work or chair
of the panel. Only works published between March 2018 and September 2019
should be the subject of proposals.
Proposals will be selected based on merit, according to the following
criteria. Please address each one in your proposal:
• The appropriateness of the topic to the interests of SCSMI,
The conceptual clarity and intellectual rigor of the project,
The contribution the project makes to advancing current understanding,
The carefulness and thoroughness of the proposal.
Presenters must be physically present at the conference and members of
the Society. Non‐members are free to submit a proposal, but if their
proposal is accepted they have until March 15, 2019 to join SCSMI,
otherwise the acceptance will be withdrawn. To join SCSMI or learn
