9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology ┬ľ CIM14

Technology is the theme of the 2014 edition of CIM, which will be held from 04 to 06 December 2014 at Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung (National Institute for Music Research), in Berlin, Germany.

Technology is omnipresent in our lives and it plays an important role in contemporary social development, particularly in the so-called Westernised world. The role of technology in our daily life is even more so remarkable with the increasing ubiquity of technology, specially computing technology, in various activities of our contemporary society, music being a notable example. Yet, there is no single universally accepted definition of "technology".

CIM14 will be aimed at all discourses on the interplay between technology and music, including collaborations between sciences and humanities, interactions between academic research and musical practice, and interdisciplinary combinations that are innovative, unusual, and creative. Please note the list of suggested   session topics.

We welcome papers addressing the relationship between music and technology in a way or another.
An important ranking criterion for the peer reviewing process will be the interdisciplinary nature of the paper, reviewed by an   international expert board.
Please see the   submission page for more information including important details about the submission format and the interdisciplinary criterion.

CIM14 conference is a joint venture between CIM organisation, Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung (SIM) and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR, University of Plymouth, UK).
