Conferences are held annually on a rotating basis, at Madison, Chicago, or Evanston.

We welcome proposals by graduate and advanced undergraduate students pertaining to musicology, ethnomusicology, music analysis, cognition, theory, pedagogy, performance, composition, education, and all other music-related subjects. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words and must be received by 4 January 2015 at 5pm CST. The abstract should include the title of the presentation but exclude the applicant’s name or any other identifying features. In the cover email, please include your name, affiliation, email address, and phone number, as well as any A/V equipment needed for the proposed presentation. Each applicant may submit up to two abstracts, with no more than one to be accepted for presentation.

Please submit abstracts electronically, as either a PDF or Word document, to the program committee: mgmc2015nu at

Proposals will be evaluated anonymously, and we anticipate notifying successful applicants by 27 February 2015. Proposals will be selected based on originality, clarity, and appropriateness for oral presentation. Selected presentations will be limited to twenty-minute talks, followed by ten additional minutes for questions and comments.
