Call for Papers

1st Analytical Approaches to World Music Special Topics Symposium (AAWM 2019)

July 2–4, 2019

Birmingham City University, UK

The last few years have seen an accelerated interest in the analytical and theoretical study of world music, as can be seen in the success of the biennial Analytical Approaches to World Music conference series. In this light, we are excited to introduce a new AAWM symposium series that focuses on topics of special interest to world music scholars. We hope that these new symposia will foster even more research and collaboration, on the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present.

The first Special Topics Symposium, AAWM 2019, will meet jointly with the 9th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis (FMA 2019). The special topic of this symposium is “Computational Approaches to World Music Analysis.” AAWM 2019 welcomes submissions that examine world musical traditions from any analytical or theoretical perspective that relates to this topic, including (but not limited to):

·  Computational and mathematical ethnomusicology

·  Computational analysis systems for non-western and folk musics

·  New methods for music transcription

·  Cognitive and related empirical models of world music

·  Methodological and representational issues and models

Proposals for papers, posters, special sessions, workshops, lecture recitals, etc. are all welcome. Please see the website of the symposium, for more details about the symposium, including the conference venue and committees, and the process for submitting proposals:


The deadline for submitting proposals, for consideration by the program committee, is March 1, 2019.

Please direct all questions to aawm2019@gmail.com
