1st International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop (DLfM 2014) in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE Digital Libraries conference 2014:
„Incorporating the Transforming Musicology Challenge“
12th September 2014 – London, UK
Deadline: 27th June 2014
Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context, as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.
The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) workshop presents a venue specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology, technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple representations of music across large-scale digital collections such as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.
TRANSFORMING MUSICOLOGY CHALLENGE
What will the next generation of musicologists be studying? And how will they carry out their research? What part will digital technology play in the musicology of the future and how will future musicologists be using digital libraries?
The Transforming Musicology Challenge solicits short position paper submissions to DLfM that describe, in detail, a musicology investigation or scenario that uses, or might use in the future, the technologies relevant to DLfM. While the primary focus of Challenge papers should be musical scholarship, authors are encouraged to relate research questions to the technical challenges that must be addressed. Entries should follow all other requirements of the DLfM Call for Papers and use the Transforming Musicology Challenge submission category via Easychair. Challenge papers will be peer reviewed by the same process as general short papers. A prize winning paper will be considered for inclusion in a chapter for the forthcoming Transforming Musicology book and win an Apple iPad Mini generously donated by the Department of Computing, Goldsmiths, University of London.
