Format of the Forum

The DFLT-16 will be held in person at the Melbourne Law School.

We envision a series of paper presentations and comments organised into multiple panels in a supportive, collegial environment. But we also warmly encourage participants who wish to present their work in visual, aural, multimedia or other creative formats.

Expression of Interest

Please submit abstracts of 300 words together with biographies of up to 100 words via the Expression of Interest form by Tuesday 29 August 2023.

Applicants will receive a response by late September. Confirmed participants are to submit their papers (between 3000–5000 words) by Monday 23 October 2023.

We also welcome non-presenting participants to join the DLFT-16 as observers, to ask questions and support the presenters. To express your interest in attending as a non-presenting participant, please complete the Observer Participants form by Monday 23 October 2023.

The Forum has limited funds to support associated costs to attend the forum. For participants travelling from outside of Melbourne, the Forum may be able to assist a few with travel and accommodation costs on a need basis. Please indicate in your application if you would like to be considered for funding support.
