CIM07: Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology
Conference theme: Singing
The Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology is a forum for constructive interaction among all musically and musicologically relevant disciplines, including acoustics, anthropology, computing, cultural studies, education, ethnology, history, linguistics, performance, physiology, medicine, psychology, therapy, philosophy, sociology, theory/analysis and composition. CIM especially promotes collaborations between sciences and humanities, between theory and practice, as well as interdisciplinary combinations that are new, unusual, creative, or otherwise especially promising.
The First Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM04) was held in Graz/Austria, from 15 to 18 April 2004 (http://gewi.uni-graz.at/~cim04). CIM04 was open to all musical research questions, and was hosted by the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) and the Department of Musicology, University of Graz and endorsed by 24 participating societies. The Second Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM05) was held in Montreal/Canada, from 10 to 12 March 2005 (http://www.oicm.umontreal.ca/cim05/). CIM05 focussed on the theme of timbre, and was hosted by the Observatoire international de la création musicale (OICM) and the Faculty of Music at University of Montréal.
The Third Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM07) will take place in Tallinn/Estonia from 15 to 19 August 2007. The theme of CIM07 is SINGING from the viewpoint of all musically and musicologically relevant disciplines. CIM07 will be hosted by the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, supported by the University of Tartu, and presented in collaboration with the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM), the International Musicological Society (IMS), and the European Seminar in Ethnomusicology (ESEM).

Abstracts must be submitted by e-mail to the conference manager Ms. Kaire Maimets-Volt (kaire.maimets_at_gmail.com). Each submission must have at least two authors who represent different disciplines. These disciplines should preferably, but not necessarily, be selected from those listed in the first paragraph of this call (e.g., psychology and acoustics, history and performance). Abstracts should be structured with the following seven headings:
1. Background in the first discipline
2. Background in the second discipline
4. Main contribution
5. Implications for musical practice
6. Implications for musicological interdisciplinarity
In empirical contributions, the "main contribution" should include a summary of method and results.
Each submitted abstract should be followed by a short biography of the (first) two authors. The whole file should not exceed 900 words, including all headings, name(s) of author(s), their affiliations and email addresses, the reference list and biographies. The preferred format of the presentation (talk or poster) should also be indicated. Abstracts should be submitted in English either as plain text or in an attached document (MS Word format preferred). They will be reviewed anonymously by a panel of international experts.
Abstract submission deadline is 31 OCTOBER 2006.
