*Music Encoding Conference 2017 Call for Proposals*

The next Music Encoding Conference will be held 16-17 May 2017 (with
pre-conference workshops on 15 May and an ‘un-conference’ day on 18 May) in
Tours, France, in cooperation with the Centre d’Études Supérieures de la
Renaissance (CESR) <http://cesr.univ-tours.fr/> based at the Université
François-Rabelais Tours <http://www.univ-tours.fr/>.

Music encoding is a critical component of the emerging fields of digital
musicology, digital editions, symbolic music information retrieval, and
others. At the centre of these fields, the Music Encoding Conference has
emerged as an important cross-disciplinary venue for theorists,
musicologists, librarians, and technologists to meet and discuss new
advances in their fields. The Music Encoding Conference is the annual focal
point for the Music Encoding Initiative community (http://music-encoding.org),
but members from all encoding and analysis communities are welcome to

Proposals for papers, posters, panel discussions, and pre-conference
workshops are encouraged. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

§  music encoding as a theoretical approach for research

§  methodologies for encoding, music editing, description and analysis

§  rendering of symbolic music data in audio and graphical forms

§  relationships between symbolic music data, encoded text, and facsimile

§  capture, interchange, and re-purposing of music data and metadata

§  music encoding and symbolic music information retrieval

§  ontologies, authority files, and linked data in music encoding and

§  additional topics relevant to music encoding, editing, and description
