CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
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.

As the conference has a dual focus on music encoding and scholarly editing in the context of the digital humanities, the Program Committee is also 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 images
* 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

For paper and poster proposals, abstracts of no more than 1000 words, with no more than five relevant bibliographic references, are requested.  Panel sessions may be one and a half or three hours in length.

Abstracts 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 include a description of space and technical requirements.

Author guidelines and authoritative stylesheets for each submission type will be made available on the conference webpage at http://music-encoding.org/conference/2013 in early December.

All accepted papers, posters, and panel sessions 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
31 July 2013: Deadline for submission of full papers for conference proceedings
December 2013: Publication of conference proceedings

Additional details will be announced on the conference webpage (http://music-encoding.org/conference/2013).

Subject: CFP Leonardo da Vinci and the history of science (ICHSTM/LdV Society Manchester 2113)

Call for papers for a symposium : Leonardo da Vinci and the history of science

On the behalf of the Leonardo da Vinci Society, we invite essays for a symposium on Leonardo and the history of science at the 24th International Congress of History of Science, Technology and Medicine, 22 - 28 July 2013 (http://www.ichstm2013.com).

Leonardo has often had an ambiguous treatment from historians. Historians of art have rarely dealt with anything that looked to them so 'scientific' and historians of science have rarely dealt with diagrams that are so beguilingly beautiful.  These difficulties are partly caused by the narrow specialisms of our day.  In recent years some bridges have been built and the emergence of a healthier body of literature on Leonardo offers some opportunities to historians of science to integrate him into a viable image of the natural philosophy, mathematics, medicine and technology of his time - and, of course, to assess his possible contributions to what happened next. Possible topics for the meeting include: the influence of practice, towards a science of engineering, the workings of patronage, manuscript in an age of printing, what price publish or perish? Confirmed speakers: J. V. Field (What the craftsmen taught the scholars), Martin Kemp (Science in the Codex Leicester), Matthew Landrus (Leonardo's engineering).

By Wednesday, 28 November, please forward an abstract of less than 2500 characters to the symposium organisers: Dr J. V. Field, jv.field at hist-art.bbk.ac.uk, and Dr Matthew Landrus, matthew.landrus at hoa.ox.ac.uk

One version of the abstract and title must be in English or French, though a second version of the title and abstract in an alternate preferred language may be included in German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, or Arabic. In addition to the abstract, please include your full name, institution (or "independent scholar"), postal address, email address, and a CV. If you might require presentation media other than an LCD projector and Windows PC with Powerpoint media, please also note this with the proposal.

Call for Papers: HASTAC 2013 -- The Decennial

The Storm of Progress: New Horizons, New Narratives, New Codes

April 25-28, 2013 York University, Toronto, Canada

Submissions Deadline: November 15, 2012
hastac2013.org

This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the
past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe
that keeps piling ruin upon ruin and hurls it in front of his feet. The
angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been
smashed. But a storm is blowing from Paradise; it has got caught in his
wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them. The storm
irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while
the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call
progress.

-- Walter Benjamin

What's next? 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of HASTAC's
(Humanities,Arts, Science Advanced Collaboratory's) founding. In that spirit we
invite work that is either reflective or prescient, that evaluates our
history and seeks to construct our future(s). We invite you to take this
opportunity to look back, theorize and archive. We invite you to engage
in the creative, if impossible, attempt to glimpse the digital future.
We challenge you to shape it. We invite you to share how you, your team,
your research lab, your classroom, or your students are building the
technologies and subjects of the future right now or imagining new
horizons of possibility for the ways in which we will make, teach, learn
and find community in the coming decade(s).

-- HASTAC histories
-- historical roots of current practices; cautionary tales
-- libraries and preservation in 2023; digital traces and archives
-- new publics, movements going global and communities of the future
-- manifestos for the next generation
-- new stories for new screens: e-literatures, immersive/augmented worlds, future cinema, games
-- ways of working
-- methodologies, code, communities, funding
-- future classrooms, curricula, and pedagogies
-- maker movements;
-- tools we haven't built yet, but that we desperately need
-- visualization and data-driven futures
-- mobility, future city spaces, built and liquid architectures
-- crowdsourcing (and/in) the future
-- teleologies and their discontents
-- new and imagined creative practices

HASTAC 2013 will be composed of keynote addresses, structured
conversations, a curated exhibition, participant presentations,
performances and tech demos, spontaneous disruptions, and a Scholars' Space.

We will accept proposals for participant presentations in the following
categories: 5-8 minute lightning talks; 15-20 minute talks; curated
panels (lightning talks, longer talks, curated conversation); project
demos; digital and/or print posters; creative performances; post
conference workshops (April 28th).

We are now accepting proposals for participant presentations in the
following categories:

5-8 Minute Lightning Talks.  We seek focused, inspiring talks that can
serve as both provocation and an introduction to your work in progress
or your wider interests.  We require:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a half-page abstract of the work you would like to present that must
discuss its relationship to the conference theme;
4) any technical requirements or other support that may be required for
you presentation.

15-20 Minute Talks.  We also seek more traditional papers that really
require more time to develop a sustained argument than a lightning talk
would allow.  Please let us know in your submission if you would allow
us to simultaneously consider your presentation submission for a
lighting talk instead of a full talk.   We require:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a one-page abstract of the work you would like to present that must
discuss its relationship to the conference theme;
4) any technical requirements or other support that may be required for
your presentation.

Curated Panels.  If you would like to curate a panel of 3- 5 lightning
talks, a traditional panel of 3 papers or a conduct structured
conversation among key thinkers, we require:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any, for all participants;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio for all participants;
3) a one-page abstract of the panel's theme that must discuss its
relationship to the larger conference theme, clearly identifying how
each panelist will contribute;
4) identification of the panel/group organizer who will be required to
facilitate the panel/group involvement;
5) any technical requirements or other support that may be required for
the presentation.

Project Demos.  Designed to showcase well-developed digital projects or
tools. Demos will be grouped in a single room and will, ideally, remain
up for an entire conference day. You will have a dedicated 2 hour slot
to engage with conference participants without competing with other
events.  You will have wireless access and a table.  While we endeavor
to provide projectors or other equipment for participants who make a
request at the time of submission, presenters will be responsible for
bringing all required technology with them. We require:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a half-page abstract of the work you would like to present and a link
to a project url with images or video documentation;
4) any technical requirements or other support (including any space
requirements beyond a table) that may be required for the presentation.
Please indicate any equipment that is absolutely required and that you
cannot bring with you.  In the event that we cannot guarantee access to
the equipment, we regret that we may not be able to accept your demo.

Digital and/or Print Posters. Print posters (4 x 3') and electronic
posters (to be projected) are solicited for emerging projects, ideas,
and scholars. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim
to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of your
research. Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and
use visuals (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your
story.  Required:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a half-page abstract of your work that must discuss its relationship
to the conference theme;
4) statement clearly identifying whether your poster will be hard-copy
or digitally projected;
5) a digital draft of your poster.

Creative Performances.  We are soliciting creative interventions, too --
e-lit readings, ARGs and mobile cinema, talks that cross boundaries
between the academic and the poetic, tech wearables, etc..  We see these
as being integrated into conference sessions (ie if you have a five
minute piece, we might schedule it as a lighting talk), as potentially
being part of scheduled evening entertainment (a 30 minute interactive
dance performance or epoetry reading), or as taking place outside
of/alongside scheduled time (ie a mobile game that conference
participants can download).

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a one-page abstract of the work you would like to present that
clearly identifies the genre your are working in and how, ideally, you
would like it to be scheduled during the conference (including time and
space requirements).  Your abstract must discuss its relationship to the
conference theme;
4) any technical requirements or other support (including any space
requirements).  Please indicate any equipment that is absolutely
required and that you cannot bring with you.  In the event that we
cannot guarantee access to the equipment, we regret that we may not be
able to accept your creative submission.

Post-conference Workshops to take place April 28th.  Full day or half
day workshops will be considered.  If you have new tools, new approaches
or seek a new community of collaborators we  can provide an opportunity
for you to offer full and half workshops.  For consideration we require:

1) complete contact information including valid phone, e-mail, and
institutional affiliation, if any;
2) brief (200-250 word) bio;
3) a one or two page abstract of the workshop that clearly describes the
goals of the workshop, its relationship to the conference theme; its
target audience (and any  specialized background required for
participation) and whether the proposal is for a full day or half-day
workshop;
4) a brief explanation of the space and technical resources required to
run the workshop.

All proposals will be reviewed, but we regret that we cannot provide
reviewer feedback. We welcome applications from scholars at all stages
of their careers from all disciplines and fields, from private sector
companies and public sector organizations, from artists and public
intellectuals, and from you.
