The Flow Conference (Oct. 26 -29, 2006; Austin, TX) -- a series of 
roundtable discussions with topics created by Flow columnists 
organized around the future of television and media culture -- is now 
accepting submissions to join a roundtable.  Deadline for submission 
is June 15, 2006.

The goal of the Flow Conference is conversation. There are no plenary 
sessions, and participants are asked to submit short position papers 
(not full-length essays). We want to promote discussion amongst 
scholars, members of the media industries, media activists, fans, and 
policy-makers over crucial issues related to television and media.

The conference program will include the institutional affiliation and 
paper titles of each participant, and we will provide web space for 
presenters to circulate position papers and any supplemental research 
or other supporting materials.

For the list of roundtable topics, please visit the conference 
website at: . To join a roundtable, submit a 250 word
abstract identifying the roundtable in which you want to participate 
and detailing your response to the topic statement, and a short bio, to:
