We are delighted to have received a very large volume of high-quality proposals for the conference from the call for proposals, which closed on 15 November 2019. We are very excited that we have been able to put together a stimulating and hugely varied programme that will involve over a wide variety of presenters from all aspects of the discipline, and from many countries, including both leading figures and emerging scholars within musicology and its related fields. We are especially grateful that so many of our participants were able to participate in the online programme.
We are particularly pleased that the programme will represent such a wide range of current international scholarly and creative research in music, including practice-based research in composition, sound art and performance, ethnographic and disciplinary films, papers on topics in musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology and with a wide interdisciplinary reach, as well as some thought-provoking sessions reflecting on a number of current issues being debated within the discipline.
The conference is structured in parallel sessions, including individual papers grouped into themed topics, themed panels of 3-4 papers, lecture-recitals, a composition workshop, sound art workshop and strand of films.
