The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (IAML) is pleased to announce the call for papers and posters for the IAML Congress to be held at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater „Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy“, Leipzig, Germany, 22-27 July 2018.
Paper and poster proposals are invited on subjects related to music in libraries, archives and documentation centres, including (but not limited to) music bibliography, cataloguing and classification, music encoding, copyright, professional training, user and public engagement, musicological research, special collections, performance ephemera, and digital resources, as well as presentations of a more general nature addressing issues of professional interest to the music library community.
Paper presentations usually occupy a 30-minute timeframe and should not exceed 20-25 minutes in length to allow time for questions and discussion. Paper proposals should be submitted via the online form.
Posters will convey the subject using a combination of graphics and narrative text attached to a presentation panel, and presenters may also distribute relevant handouts. Poster proposals should be submitted via the online form.
Proposals may be submitted in any of IAML’s official languages: English, French, or German.
The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday 17 November 2017.
Participants will be notified by 15 January 2018.
