10th International Conference of the Dutch-Flemish Society for Music Theory

Maastricht (NL), February 21-23, 2008

The Tenth International Conference of the Dutch-Flemish Society for 
Music Theory will take place at the Maastricht Conservatory 
(Hogeschool Zuyd) on Friday and Saturday February 22 and 23, 2008, 
with a pre-conference event on Thursday evening February 21. The 
conference theme is MUSIC THEORY AND PERFORMANCE. All contributions 
relating to the relationship between music theory and performance (or 
performance practice) are welcome, but submissions in one of the 
following fields are particularly encouraged:
1. Music analysis and performance practice
2. Theory of interpretation
3. Theory of performance
4. Implementation of theory and analysis in post-secondary music education
5. Analysis of performance
Submissions for individual papers (20 minutes) are invited, as are 
proposals for longer presentations/demonstrations involving the 
participation of performing artists. Participants should take into 
consideration that their prepared texts are meant to be heard, not 
read. Reworked, written-out versions of the presentations will however 
be considered for publication afterwards. The conference languages are 
Dutch, English, and German.

Abstracts (400 words) should be sent by e-mail to both 
Pieter.Berge@arts.kuleuven.be and 
Steven.VandeMoortele@arts.kuleuven.be before December 8, 2007. Please 
include the name of the applicant, the name of the institution, email 
address, postal address, and phone number. The selection committee 
will notify applicants by December 28, 2007.

The conference program will be announced early January 2008.
