We welcome abstracts (300 words) in any area of music research including, but not limited to, ethnomusicology, music theory, musicology, music education, music technology, sound recording, music psychology, performance, and composition. Papers, posters, lecture recitals, improvisations, art/music installations, and special sessions of 2-4 panelists are all encouraged. Please indicate in the body of your email which format(s) would suit your presentation. Special session proposals must include a separate 300-word proposal for the session as a whole in addition to individual proposals for each panelist.
Both abstracts and presentations may be in either English or French. All submissions must be received by Wednesday January 7, 2015.
