Event: The Music Encoding Conference 2013: Concepts, Methods, Editions, Germany, 22 – 24 May 2013


The Music Encoding Conference 2013: Concepts, Methods, Editions,
Mainz, Germany,
22th – 24th May 2013.

The Conference Organizers are pleased to announce that registration for the Music Encoding Conference 2013 – Concepts, Methods, Editions, to be held 22-24 May, 2013, at the Mainz Academy for Literature and Sciences in Mainz, Germany is now open.

Music encoding is now a prominent feature of various areas in musicology and music librarianship. The encoding of symbolic music data provides a foundation for a wide range of scholarship, and over the last several years, has garnered a great deal of attention in the digital humanities.

This conference intends to provide an overview of the current state of data modeling, generation, and use, and aims to introduce new
perspectives on topics in the fields of traditional and computational musicology, music librarianship, and scholarly editing, as well as in the
broader area of digital humanities.

With its dual focus on music encoding and editing in the context of the digital humanities, the Program Committee is happy to announce keynote
lectures by Frans Wiering (Universiteit Utrecht), and Daniel Pitti (University of Virginia), both distinguished scholars in their respective
fields of musicology and markup technologies in the digital humanities.


The conference schedule is available at http://music-encoding.org/conference/program.

To register, visit https://music-encoding.org/conftool before April 30. There will be *no on-site registration*. If you happen to miss the registration deadline, please contact conference2013@music-encoding.org.

The regular price for the conference is 80€, but there is a discounted rate of 60€ for students. Eligibility for the student rate needs to be proved
on-site by showing a student ID card or similar document. We offer a one-day tutorial on MEI at no additional charge, but please select the tutorial option during registration.

The conference dinner, planned for Thursday evening, costs an additional 30€.  There is no reduced fee for the dinner. Additional guests may register for the dinner only.

Your registration fee includes several things. First, the venue is somewhat out of the center of Mainz, with very few options for meals nearby. Therefore, we provide lunch on Thursday and Friday. We also provide catering for coffee breaks every morning and afternoon. The fee also includes a three-day ticket (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) for local transit within Mainz.

Payment options are available within ConfTool. We accept payment by bank transfer and PayPal. Select PayPal if you wish to pay by credit card. Payment is made through the Edirom Service GbR, which will appear on your receipts. This small company supports the conference by taking care of all financial details without charge. Otherwise, payment by major credit cards wouldn’t be possible.

Additional details will be announced on the conference webpage at http://music-encoding.org/conference/2013. If you have any questions, please contact conference2013@music-encoding.org.
