Fifth Biennial International Conference on Music Since 1900
University of York, United Kingdom, 5-8 July 2007

Proposals are warmly invited on any topics pertinent to musics of the 20th
and 21st centuries. However, the ICMSN conference would particularly like
to emphasize work on the following topics, intended to be applicable to
all genres of music (pop, commercial, concert, jazz, folk, world...):

   * Technological innovations and social context
   * Music in non-Western cultures
   * Improvisation and improvised music
   * Present-day composition shaped by and shaping social and historical

Proposals are welcome for any of the following:

   * Panel discussions (up to 6 participants, each giving a short position
     paper, followed by a general discussion)
   * Paper sessions (four papers, each 20 minutes maximum, with 10 minutes
     for discussion)
   * Papers (20 minutes maximum, with 10 minutes for discussion)
   * Recitals or lecture-recitals (40 minutes maximum)
   * Workshop-discussions, led by up to three presenters, on aspects of
     present-day composition
   * Curated installations or compositional listening sessions

Abstracts should be prepared as follows:
   * For individual papers -- up to 250 words
   * For paper sessions -- 250-word (maximum) summary and up to 250 words
     for each session participant
   * For panel discussions -- 250-word (maximum) and up to 150 words for
     each panel participant

The deadline for submission of session and paper titles and abstracts is 8
January 2007. To make it possible to review proposals anonymously, we ask
   * There be only one proposal per applicant.
   * Proposals not duplicate presentations being given at conferences or
     other events proximate in time or place to ICMSN.
   * All proposals be sent as an email together with an MS Word attachment.
   * For panel or paper sessions, the email should include the names of all
     participants, with the corresponding titles of their papers, and the
     session titles.  For individual papers, the email should include both
     the applicant's name and the paper title.
   * The Word attachments should include the titles and abstracts, but
     nothing that reveals the names of the participants.

Send proposals to William Brooks, Department of Music, University of York,
YO10 5DD, UK (wfb3 at york.ac.uk).
