CFP The Music Encoding Conference 2018

CFP The Music Encoding Conference 2018
The Music Encoding Conference is the annual focal point for the Music Encoding Initiative community (http://music-encoding.org), but members from all encoding and analysis communities are welcome to participate. The conference has emerged as an important cross-disciplinary venue for theorists, musicologists, librarians, and technologists to meet and discuss new advances in their fields.
For the first time, the annual conference will have a theme: “Encoding and Performance”. We welcome in particular submissions that theorize the relationship between music encoding and performance practice, describe experiments (failed or successful) in creating digital dynamic scores, propose ways of using encoded music for pedagogical purposes related to performance, or imagine future interconnections. For more details, including a list of suggested topics please view the full call for papers at http://mith.umd.edu/announcing-music-encoding-conference-2018-call-proposals/
