CALL FOR PAPERS - MTSMA - APRIL 1-2, 2005
DEADLINE:  3 DECEMBER 2004


The Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic invites paper and panel discussion
proposals on any aspect of music theory.  MTSMA especially welcomes presentations
that include simulated teaching, analysis presentations for use in undergraduate or
graduate teaching, and those that include high school teachers of music theory.

All presentations are limited to thirty (30) minutes: twenty (20) minutes for the
paper and ten (10) minutes for discussion.  Panel discussions should comprise three
to four participants, each member giving formal remarks of no more than five minutes,
thus allowing for discussion between the panelists and audience.

Please include the following in the your submission:

	1.  Seven copies of your proposal.  Proposals are limited to 500 words and no
more than two pages in total.  It must be double spaced (use a 10- to 12-point font),
and stapled (no paper clips, please).  Since all submissions will be read blind,
neither the author nor the author's institution is to be identified.  E-mail
submissions will not be accepted.

	2.  A cover letter that includes the author's name, institutional affiliation
or city of residence, phone number(s), e-mail address, full return address and
equipment/arrangements needed.  If applicable, indicate if you would like to be
considered for Dorothy Payne Best Student Paper Award.  In the case of panel
discussion, contact information for only one person is needed, but do include the
names of all panelists, institutional affiliation or city of residence.

	3.  One copy of a 200-250 word abstract suitable for inclusion in the MTSMA
web site and in the abstract booklet to be distributed at the meeting.  Include your
name and intuition or city on the abstract.  If your proposal is selected, you will
be required to submit an electronic version as an attachment in MS Word format.  
Subsequent to presentation and at the discretion of the author, the text of the
entire paper will be made available on the web site as well in .pdf format.

	4.  A self-addressed stamped postcard to notify you that your proposal was
received.
