Clarinet and Woodwind Colloquium 2007

University of Edinburgh, 22-24 June 2007

Celebrating the Collection of Sir Nicholas Shackleton

Meeting organised by the University of Edinburgh

Edinburgh University Collection of Historic Musical Instruments is
planning an international research colloquium on woodwind instruments with
the clarinet as the central topic, to be held at the Reid Concert Hall
Museum of Instruments next year. This event will mark the establishment of
the late Sir Nicholas Shackleton's collection of clarinets and other
woodwinds in Edinburgh where it has been bequeathed.

Call for Contributions (Call for Papers)

Offers of full-length (up to 40-minute) papers and shorter (down to
10-minute) presentations, lecture-recitals, concerts and workshops are
invited. Papers should be based on original research and discoveries, and
may be on any topic relevant to the clarinet or woodwind in general.

The proceedings of the Colloquium will be published following the event,
and the full text of papers should be submitted by 1 October 2007.
Editorial guidelines will be announced in advance of the meeting. The
language of the abstracts, presentations and paper texts will be English.
Papers should be delivered in person at the Colloquium by the author (or
one of the named authors in the case of joint authorship). It is intended
that there will be no parallel sessions. There will be a small fee for
participation in the Colloquium.

The organisers request that abstracts (200 words maximum) of full-length
papers and titles of short contributions should be sent (preferably
electronically) by 15 January 2007. The length of presentation envisaged
should be indicated.

Acceptance of submissions will be notified by 15 February 2007. Accepted
abstracts will be placed on the website of the Edinburgh University
Collection of Historic Musical Instruments. Requests for audio-visual
equipment for presentations should be made by 30 April 2007.

Please notify the organisers as soon as possible (preferably by e-mail) if
you expect to attend the Colloquium - whether or not you intend to give a
paper - to help with planning, and so that you will receive further
information about the meeting.

Information about the Colloquium will be maintained on the Web at:
