From the email announcement of the conference:
You are cordially invited to participate in 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.
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.
As the conference has a dual focus on music encoding and scholarly editing in the context of the digital humanities, the Program Committee is also 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.
Proposals for papers, posters, panel discussions, and pre-conference workshops are encouraged. Prospective topics for submissions include:
- theoretical and practical aspects of music, music notation models, and scholarly editing
- rendering of symbolic music data in audio and graphical forms
- relationships between symbolic music data, encoded text, and facsimile images
- capture, interchange, and re-purposing of music data and metadata
- ontologies, authority files, and linked data in music encoding
- additional topics relevant to music encoding and music editing
I know Daniel Pitti from the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). His presence assures me this will be a great conference for markup, modeling and music enthusiasts.
I can recognize music because it comes in those little plastic boxes. If you want to talk about the markup/encoding/mapping side, ping me.
