The regular price for the conference is 80€, but there is a discounted rate

during registration.

The conference dinner, planned for Thursday evening, costs an additional 30€.
There is no reduced fee for the dinner. Additional guests may register for
the dinner only.

SERVICES
Your registration fee includes several things. First, the venue is somewhat
out of the center of Mainz, with very few options for meals nearby. Therefore,
we provide lunch on Thursday and Friday. We also provide catering for coffee
breaks every morning and afternoon. The fee also includes a three-day ticket
(Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) for local transit within Mainz.

PAYMENT DETAILS
Payment options are available within ConfTool. We accept payment by bank
transfer and PayPal. Select PayPal if you wish to pay by credit card. Payment
is made through the Edirom Service GbR, which will appear on your receipts.
This small company supports the conference by taking care of all financial
details without charge. Otherwise, payment by major credit cards wouldn’t be
possible.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Additional details will be announced on the conference webpage at
http://music-encoding.org/conference/2013. If you have any questions, please
contact conference2013@music-encoding.org.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Music encoding is now a prominent feature of various areas in musicology
and music librarianship. The encoding of symbolic music data provides a
foundation for a wide range of scholarship, and over the last several
years, has garnered a great deal of attention in the digital humanities.

This conference intends to provide an overview of the current state of
data modeling, generation, and use, and aims to introduce new
perspectives on topics in the fields of traditional and computational
musicology, music librarianship, and scholarly editing, as well as in the
broader area of digital humanities.

With its dual focus on music encoding and editing in the context of the
digital humanities, the Program Committee is happy to announce keynote
lectures by Frans Wiering (Universiteit Utrecht), and Daniel Pitti
(University of Virginia), both distinguished scholars in their respective
fields of musicology and markup technologies in the digital humanities.
