The IAML Congress 2021 takes place online via the Zoom platform from Monday 26 until Friday 30 July. The programme will feature a mixture of paper and poster sessions, panel discussions, and social hour sessions, as well as the General Assembly and other business meetings. Sessions will be scheduled to make it possible for members in all parts of the world to participate during the course of the week.
We invite papers addressing issues of current professional concern, including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, user and public engagement, professional training, digital humanities, music encoding, issues of diversity and inclusion, and copyright. Proposals that seek to encourage discussion and interaction are especially encouraged.
Papers should be approximately 15-20 minutes in duration, with illustrations using PowerPoint or equivalent software suitable for delivery via Zoom, followed by questions and discussion.
The deadline for the submission of paper proposals is Wednesday 31 March 2021 (midnight UTC).
Both IAML members and non-members may submit proposals and the Congress is open to anyone with an interest in the field. Submissions will be evaluated by the members of the IAML Forum of Sections. Proposals can be submitted in any of IAML's official languages: English, French, or German.
After successful submission a confirmation message should appear on the screen (please note that you will not receive a confirmation email).
The preliminary programme will be made available by Tuesday 1 June 2021.
The Congress is also being held in association with the Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) conference, which takes place on Thursday 29 July. A joint IAML/DLfM session is planned for Friday 30 July.
Any questions about the Call for Papers should be directed to the IAML Programme Officer, Rupert Ridgewell, at email@example.com.
