The Music Encoding Conference 2013: Concepts, Methods, Editions
22-24 May, 2013
You are cordially invited to participate in the Music Encoding Conference
2013 - Concepts, Methods, Editions, to be held 22-24 May, 2013, at the
Mainz Academy for Literature and Sciences in Mainz, Germany.

Music encoding is now a prominent feature of various areas in musicology
and music librarianship. The encoding of symbolic music data provides a
foundation for a wide range of scholarship, and over the last several
years, has garnered a great deal of attention in the digital humanities.
This conference intends to provide an overview of the current state of
data modeling, generation, and use, and aims to introduce new
perspectives on topics in the fields of traditional and computational
musicology, music librarianship, and scholarly editing, as well as in the
broader area of digital humanities.

With its dual focus on music encoding and editing in the context of the
digital humanities, the Program Committee is happy to announce keynote
lectures by Frans Wiering (Universiteit Utrecht), and Daniel Pitti
(University of Virginia), both distinguished scholars in their respective
fields of musicology and markup technologies in the digital humanities.

Proposals for papers, posters, panel discussions, and pre-conference
workshops are encouraged.  Prospective topics for submissions include:
* theoretical and practical aspects of music, music notation models, and
scholarly editing
* rendering of symbolic music data in audio and graphical forms
* relationships between symbolic music data, encoded text, and facsimile
* capture, interchange, and re-purposing of music data and metadata
* ontologies, authority files, and linked data in music encoding
* additional topics relevant to music encoding and music editing

Paper and poster proposals must contain no more than 1000 words and a
references section with no more than five relevant bibliographic
references.  A length requirement for final papers has not yet been
determined; however, poster presentations will be limited to 2 pages in
the proceedings.

Panel sessions may be one and a half or three hours in length. Proposals
for panel sessions, describing the topic and nature of the session and
including short biographies of the participants, should be no longer than
2000 words.

Proposals for pre-conference workshops, to be held on May 21st, must be
no longer than 2000 words and must include a detailed syllabus and
schedule and a description of space and technical requirements.

Detailed submission instructions, including author guidelines and
authoritative stylesheets for each submission type, are available on the
conference webpage at https://music-encoding.org/conference/submission.

All accepted papers, posters, and reports of panel sessions and workshops
will be included in the conference proceedings, tentatively scheduled to
be published by the end of 2013.

Important dates:
31 December 2012: Deadline for abstract submissions
31 January 2013: Notification of acceptance/rejection of submissions
21-24 May 2013: Conference
