Thirty-Fourth Annual Conference
International Association for Jazz Education

New York, January 2007

The International Association for Jazz Education invites proposals for
presentations and clinics for the Technology Track at its 34th Annual
Conference to be held in New York City, January 10-13, 2007.

Proposal Guidelines
While not specifically required, it is suggested that each proposal
demonstrate a clear relationship to jazz pedagogy, performance or
practice. We encourage proposal submissions of the following topics:

*Computer-assisted Instruction
*Notation Software
*Sequencing Software
*Electronic Musical Instruments
*Digital Audio

Session Formats

*Within each category we encourage proposal submissions for
lecture/presentations and hands-on tutorial sessions. Industry
showcases/product demonstrations should have a clear relationship to jazz
pedagogy, performance and practice.

*Emphasis should be placed on competency acquisition so that attendees
will leave with new skills in addition to the knowledge and enthusiasm
generated by technology presentations. Hands-on sessions should focus on
one or two aspects of a program rather than an overview.

*Sessions will have a maximum 50-minute time slot plus 10 minutes for
set-up and tear down.

Proposal Guidelines

* Complete all 13 items outlines in the Technology Session Proposal Form
(appended below).
* All proposals MUST use the appended form and be submitted as a text file
only. No word processor files or hard copy proposals will accepted

*Proposals must be received by April 10, 2006. Due to the nature of the
selection process, incomplete or late proposals will not be reviewed

*Email your proposal to George Hess at


*Receipt of your proposal will be acknowledged by return e-mail within
five business days of your submission.

*Programming decisions will be announced by July 2006.

clinician or sponsor and that of IAJE. Additionally, IAJE membership is
