The second International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation is dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in Music Notation and Representation, with a focus on computer tools and applications, music creation and cognition.
Until very recently, the support provided by computer music developers and practitioners to the field of symbolic notation has remained fairly conventional. However, recent developments indicate that the field of tools for musical notation is now moving towards new forms of representation. Moreover, musical notation, transcription, sonic visualisation, and musical representation are often associated with the fields of musical analysis, ethnology, and acoustics. The aim of this conference is to explore all recent mutations of notation and representation in all domains of music.
This year we are extending the call to include cognition as well as ontological issues of performance practice arising from the use of traditional and/or graphical notation systems in live electronics.
In addition to paper submissions, we are interested in receiving proposals for workshops involving technologies of notation and representation. We would also be happy to receive proposals involving presentation formats which challenge the paper/presentation model.
Workshops will take place at:
The deadline for receipt of papers is Monday November 16th 2015 midnight GMT. Notification of acceptance will be emailed to applicants by January 25th 2016. Presenters whose papers are chosen will be invited to submit their revised papers by 18th April 2016.
Papers must be written in English and must use and comply with the latex template or word template.
Full papers (not abstracts) and original work (not already published) must be submitted. Paper length should be between 4 and 12 pages.
Submissions should be made via the EasyChair platform.
Proposals will be accepted as oral presentations or posters. The duration of an oral presentation will be 15 minutes followed by a question period of 5 minutes. Standard presentation equipment will be provided including a video projector, CD player, and stereo sound system.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISSN/ISBN reference, and will be archived online after the conference.
In addition to paper submissions, we are interested in receiving proposals for workshops involving technologies of notation and representation. We would also be happy to receive proposals involving presentation formats which challenge the paper/presentation model (e.g. a paper+music presentation).
For workshop proposals, send a one page abstract to tenor2016[at]tenor-conference.org. Regarding specific presentations formats, include a one line description with your abstract.
The conference language is English.
For any question, please contact : tenor2016[at]tenor-conference.org
Poster submissions should be in English and include an abstract of the poster and names & affiliations of all authors. Posters may be sized A0 (Portrait only). Remember that a poster should be readable from a distance of one or two meters; we recommend using fonts of 26pt or larger for the base text. The conference organisers will supply display boards and tacks/adhesive. For a fee of £22 you can print your A0 poster here at ARU. It will be waiting at the Registration desk for you. Please contact email@example.com to arrange.
