Dublin papers piled up

'The most proposals we've seen for many years' are keeping The Word programme committee burning the midnight oil.

This year a record number of proposals were submitted to ATypI's call for conference papers, which are now in the process of being peer reviewed, and are about to get their second reading. A wide variety of themes have been addressed which promises for a particularly entertaining and engaging conference.

'We're running a few days late on our schedule', said programme committee member Clare Bell, who is also a Board member of ATypI, 'but there is such a lot of great material to review and make a judgement about. We want to be fair to the people who have submitted, because there are going to be some disappointed people.'

Meanwhile announcements about two more keynote speakers will be released in the next few days.
