Lines and Circles

The Kozani music seminar has been host to artists and students from all over the world since 1988. In 2014 we are launching the first music conference which will precede and introduce the music Festival that runs parallel to the music course.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, performances or colloquia to take place in the Archaeological Museum of Aiani addressing the broader theme of music notation.

Preparing and submitting your conference proposal

Eligible participants may be performers, composers, graphic artists, linguists, music theorists, music enthusiasts and philologists or any other researchers who wish to conttribute to the various themes underlying the main subject of notating music.

An abstract of no more than 350 words, your name, address and cv (optional) may be submitted to before 1 August. However, applicants are strongly advised to make an early pre-registration as the conference offers limited spaces and priority will be given to early entries. Unlimited spaces of virtual participation are available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person, in the form of poster or video presentations. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. The participation fee is 80 Euros payable to “Pyxida”. Payment guidelines will be offered on acceptance of the paper. There is no fee for the application submission.

The conference is bilingual and presentations may be in either English or Greek. There will be a surtitle service on offer for papers submitted before the 1st of August and simultaneous interpretation/translation on request for other papers. The conference will be audio and video recorded and all conference papers will be published in print and electronically in Greek and English.
