Welcome to the Musicology/Ethnomusicology/Music Theory Conferences WikiEdit
Hey everybody! The conference wiki has been going for a little over a year now, and I'd like to get an idea of how many people are using this wiki for information, posting, discussion, etc. So if you would oblige me...Edit
I am a regular visitor to the conference wiki-4
I have posted information on the wiki-2
This Wiki is for sharing information about upcoming Musicology and/or Music Thoery conferences, including Calls for Papers, meeting dates/times/places, deadlines, acceptances/rejections, and any other "insider" information you might care to share about a conference. Most of the listings will be from the AMS/SEM/SMT "complex," but all conferences that accept papers on musical subjects are welcome.
"General Discussion" (located below the conference listings and deadline calendar) is for topics not related to a specific conference; feel free to post comments/questions/answers related to a specific conference under its main listing.
Contributors: 'Please use the "Conference Name/Meeting place; dates/CFP submission date" format, as applicable. Listings are given in alphabetic order by title; be sure to check that your conference is not already listed! In addition to your listing, don't forget to put the sumission deadline on the calander, immediately below the conference listings.
NOTICE: we are having some issues with the formatting, so for the time being, I'm going to get rid of all bullet points. We will continue to use bold and plain type to differentiate between heading and additional information

This section is for discussing general conference-related subjects, not specific to any particular conference. (Feel free to post comments/questions/answers related to a specific conference under its main listing.)
Q 12/1/11: Would those of you who have successfully submitted abstracts to the "big ones" (AMS/SEM/SMT National, prestigious international conferences, etc), or those of you who sit/have sat on selection committees for these types of conferences, be willing to share any tips on abstract writing?
A1 (12/4/11): An old-fashioned approach has worked for me: have new evidence that shapes our underdstanding of something interesting and/or contributes to an ongoing discourse. In this case, the abstract should describe the evidence, make a claim that the evidence supports, and explain why anyone should care about such a claim (and thus the evidence)—especially if it's not obvious.
A2 (12/10/2011): You might be interested in seeing the handout and notes found on the SMT site at http://societymusictheory.org/administration/committees/pdc/proposals ; on this web page you will find some guidelines, hints, as well as some samples of proposals that have been accepted in the past..
A3 (1/2/2012): Successful abstracts from AMS National 2011 at http://www.ams-net.org/sanfrancisco/AMS-San-Francisco-2011-Final-Abstracts.pdf. Good luck everyone!
Q: 12/2/11: I've got CV question: I've been told that you should NOT put talks given at your home institution for your department/colleagues on your CV, but I was wondering whether to put graduate-student symposia, for which you successfully submitted a paper in a competitve submission process, on the CV? If so, at what point should you take it off (after your first presentation at any type of professional conference, after acceptance to one of the "big ones" (to quote 12/1)? Thoughts?
A1: 12/5/11: Absolutely put grad conferences on CVs- they are important conferences, more competitive than one might think (as steering committee member for a grad conference last year, our accept rate was about 1/3), and can also show breadth of knowledge if you're, say, doing a side topic that's not in your diss field. That being said, I've been told doing lots of grad conferences (more than 2-3) then becomes serious padding. As for the first, why not? It is, after all, a scholarly presentation for one's peers. Also, since such talks are either done in fulfillment of degree requirements, as a result of interdisciplinary connections, or subject to competitive processes (i.e. university-wide grad student lecture series), most people don't have the opportunity to do more than 1 or 2, removing the "padding" aspect.
Q: 01/27/12: Is it considered bad form to submit two proposals/abstracts (for two distinct papers) to a single conference, then retract one if both are chosen?
A1 (2/1/12): Yes.
