The Music Encoding Conference 2016

You are cordially invited to participate in the Music Encoding Conference, which will be held 18-19 May 2016 (with pre-conference workshops on 17 May and an “un-conference” day on 20 May) in Montreal, Canada, in cooperation with McGill University.

Music encoding is a critical component of the emerging fields of digital musicology, digital editions, symbolic music information retrieval, and others. At the centre of these fields, the Music Encoding Conference has emerged as an important cross-disciplinary venue for theorists, musicologists, librarians, and technologists to meet and discuss new advances in their fields. The Music Encoding Conference is the annual focal point for the Music Encoding Initiative community (, but members from all encoding and analysis communities are welcome to participate.

Proposals for papers, posters, panel discussions, and pre-conference workshops are encouraged. Please see our Call for Papers.
