Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM07)

Tallinn, August 2007

 
Call for Papers
CIM07: Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology
Conference theme: Singing

The Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology is a forum for constructive
interaction among all musically and musicologically relevant disciplines,
including acoustics, anthropology, computing, cultural studies, education,
ethnology, history, linguistics, performance, physiology, medicine,
psychology, therapy, philosophy, sociology, theory/analysis and
composition. CIM especially promotes collaborations between sciences and
humanities, between theory and practice, as well as interdisciplinary
combinations that are new, unusual, creative, or otherwise especially
promising.

The First Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM04) was held in
Graz/Austria, from 15 to 18 April 2004 (http://gewi.uni-graz.at/~cim04).
CIM04 was open to all musical research questions, and was hosted by the
European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) and the
Department of Musicology, University of Graz and endorsed by 24
participating societies. The Second Conference on Interdisciplinary
Musicology (CIM05) was held in Montreal/Canada, from 10 to 12 March 2005
(http://www.oicm.umontreal.ca/cim05/). CIM05 focussed on the theme of
timbre, and was hosted by the Observatoire international de la création
musicale (OICM) and the Faculty of Music at University of Montréal.

The Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM07) will take
place in Tallinn/Estonia from 15 to 19 August 2007. The theme of CIM07 is
SINGING from the viewpoint of all musically and musicologically relevant
disciplines. CIM07 will be hosted by the Estonian Academy of Music and
Theatre, supported by the University of Tartu, and presented in
collaboration with the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of
Music (ESCOM), the International Musicological Society (IMS), and the
European Seminar in Ethnomusicology (ESEM). Further information:
http://www-gewi.uni-graz.at/cim07/.

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail to the conference manager Ms. Kaire
Maimets-Volt (kaire.maimets@gmail.com). Each submission must have at
least two authors who represent different disciplines. These disciplines
should preferably, but not necessarily, be selected from those listed in
the first paragraph of this call (e.g., psychology and acoustics, history
and performance). Abstracts should be structured with the following seven
headings:

1. Background in the first discipline
2. Background in the second discipline
3. Aims
4. Main contribution
5. Implications for musical practice
6. Implications for musicological interdisciplinarity
7. References

In empirical contributions, the "main contribution" should include a
summary of method and results.

Each submitted abstract should be followed by a short biography of the
(first) two authors. The whole file should not exceed 900 words, including
all headings, name(s) of author(s), their affiliations and email
addresses, the reference list and biographies. The preferred format of the
presentation (talk or poster) should also be indicated. Abstracts should
be submitted in English either as plain text or in an attached document
(MS Word format preferred). They will be reviewed anonymously by a panel
of international experts.

Abstract submission deadline is 31 OCTOBER 2006.
