9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology
submission deadline: 05 August 2014
Conference dates: December 4-6, 2014
National Institute for Music Research, Berlin, Germany
Technology is omnipresent in our lives and it plays an
important role in contemporary social development, particularly in the
so-called Westernized world. The role of technology in our daily life is even
more so remarkable with the increasing ubiquity of technology, specially
computing technology, in various activities of our contemporary society, music
being a notable example. Yet, there is no single universally accepted
definition of "technology".
CIM14 will be aimed at all discourses on the interplay
between technology and music, including collaborations between sciences and
humanities, interactions between academic research and musical practice, and
interdisciplinary combinations that are innovative, unusual, and creative.
Conference Sessions & Topics:
Please visit the conference site for a list of suggested
including: Technology in Ethnomusicology, Empirical and
Computational Ethnomusicology, Neuro-inspired Ethnomusicology, Technology in/of
Music Analysis, and Computer-Aided and Automatic Music Analysis.
We are particularly interested in new emerging fields of
technology in music research and practice, which could form a session on New
Emerging Technologies, which might include: Music Neurotechnology,
Neuromusicology & Neuro-inspired Music Theory, Evolutionary Computing in
Music & Musicology, Computational Ethnomusicology and Unconventional
Computing in Music.
Submission of papers:
CIM14 welcomes papers addressing the relationship between
music and technology in a way or another. An important ranking criterion for
the peer reviewing process will be the interdisciplinary nature of the paper.
