Welcome to BEA2018!
BEA2018 takes place at the Las Vegas Westgate and starts at NOON on Saturday, April 7, and concludes with "Closing Cocktails' on the evening of Tuesday, April 10.
The BEA2018 Convention Spotlight is….. Inclusive Media
Today’s media is being challenged by a changing workforce and audience. The audience is searching for and watching media that reflects them and their experience. On the other side of the camera, the industry has been slow to include the wide variety of voices and skilled professionals who can allow the industry to better move forward to serve the changing audience. This is the challenge of inclusive media – leveraging the multiple backgrounds, perspectives and ideas of storytellers to create engaging media for a diverse audience.
Inclusive Media serves as a spotlight for the convention, but program proposals are not limited to this area of research and presentation. All sessions must adhere to the goals and objectives of the interest division(s) to which they are submitted (descriptions are listed on the submission site).
Please vsisit www.BEAweb.org for information on submitting panels and papers.
Remember we have a new paper deadline….Program/Panel proposals must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on September 15, 2017 and papers must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on December 1, 2017.
