Submissions are specifically solicited annually by the formal deadlines of May 15 and October 15. Submissions may be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis as space allows.

To be considered for publication in Caravel, a submission must adhere to the guidelines below. All submissions must include a written portion (the abstract), even if the primary medium for the submission is not textual (e.g., a video, graphic, or audio presentation).
