Call for Proposals

The 55th Annual Conference of the Royal Musical Association will be hosted jointly by the University of Manchester and the Royal Northern College of Music, between Wednesday 11 and Friday 13 September 2019. Full details are given on the conference website:

The conference seeks to celebrate the interface between performance, musicology and composition, and we are therefore keen to encourage proposals for presentations that represent the full range of current international scholarly and creative research in music, including:

•  Individual Papers (20 minutes)

• Themed sessions of 3–4 papers (90 minutes)

•  Lecture-recitals (30 minutes)

• Poster presentations

• Practice-based research workshops (90 minutes)

• Acoustic compositions (up to 10 minutes)

•  Electroacoustic compositions (up to 10 minutes)

• Mixed-media compositions (up to 10 minutes)

The Programme Committee welcomes proposals from both established scholars and practitioners and from early-career researchers. Any individual may submit one proposal; RMA membership is not a prerequisite for submission.

All proposals must be submitted via the online proposal submission form by 5 p.m. on Thursday 15 November 2018. Details of the procedures to be followed for the different types of submission can be found at
