June 19-21, 2014
Preliminary Program Released
The preliminary schedule of events and presentations is now available. We don't anticipate major changes in this plan, but any that do arise will be announced here.
The program includes featured talks by Jill Walker Rettberg of the University of Bergen (Wednesday), writer and arts blogger Illya Szilak (Thursday), Lane Hall, co-founder of the Overpass Light Brigade (Friday), and an inaugural awards presentation honoring the continuing commitment of N. Katherine Hayles (Saturday)
Saturday evening, following the formal end of the conference, Milwaukee's world-famous Woodland Pattern Bookstore hosts a reading of print and digital poetry by Stephanie Strickland, Amaranth Borsuk, and Ian Hatcher.
Further details of all these events will be posted to this site in coming weeks.
The 2014 U.S. Conference of the Electronic Literature Organization will be held June 19-21 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Sessions and the Media Art Show will take place on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
This site provides preliminary information about the conference themes, organizers, location, and Call for Participation.
Questions and suggestions may be sent in the meantime to Stuart Moulthrop, moulthro [at] uwm.edu.
The conference program will be available by mid-April. Registration is now open. Discounts for early registration are available through April 15.

Unlike the 2014 Paris conference, Hold the Light does not require you to set up an account on this Web site. Simply proceed to the Registration page, select ELO membership and fee options, and then proceed to the Doubletree Hotel site to arrange your room. You will receive confirmation from the hotel almost immediately, and from the conference organizers for your registration within a week.
