Call for Papers: How Is Technology Affecting How You Handle the Bible?

Technology is becoming a bigger and bigger part of everything—including how we handle Scripture.

That’s the idea behind Faithlife’s BibleTech Conference this year, and we’re asking you to submit a thoughtful paper or discussion on the topic.

About the Conference

The 2019 BibleTech Conference is on April 11–12 in Seattle, WA. The conference topic explores how expanding technology affects how we handle the Bible, from translation and interpretation to communication and transmission.

BibleTech provides an opportunity for you to connect with others in the church tech space, as well as stay on the cutting edge of how people are using technology for biblical studies and ministry, whether in the church, missions, or the classroom.

Got something to share? Send us your proposal.

Are you working at or near the intersection of Scripture and technology? Whether you’re a programmer, publisher, designer, information scientist, or something else, we want to hear from you.

We’re accepting submissions from anyone who would like to present at the conference or lead roundtable discussions. Fill out the participation form here to apply to present. Because we get many entries, please be as detailed as you can when sharing your ideas. And if you have multiple ideas, fill out multiple entries.

For reference, here are a few topics from past years:

  • Why Bible Typography Matters
  • Localizing Bible Data
  • Seeing the Big Picture, Visualizing the Bible Data
  • Leveraging Data to Simplify and Sharpen Analysis of the Greek Text

The deadline to complete the participation form is Monday, January 14. Speakers will be chosen in early 2019.
