Med-Ren 2015: Brussels

18 December 2014
CfP: MedRen 2015 in Brussels The organisers and the Programme Committee invite proposals for the 2015 Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference, to be held in Brussels from 6–9 July. We welcome proposals on any relevant topic, but are particularly eager for proposals concerning music in or related to the southern Low Countries. In order to make the most of the available conference time, to try to give as many people as possible a chance to present, to keep the number of parallel sessions under control, and to make the conference a varied experience, we wish particularly to encourage proposers to consider formats other than standard papers. Possible formats include, but are not limited to:individual papers of 20 minutes,‘lightning talks’ of around 10 minutes, paired papers, themed sessions, round tables, workshops, and posters. The conference will include a dedicated poster session, with a prize for the best submission. All proposals should include: title, indication of format (sessions with multiple participants should indicate the total required duration; proposers are free to determine that duration themselves), proposer’s name, proposer’s affiliation (if any), names and affiliations of any additional participants, contact email, AV requirements, a short biography or biographies of the participants (max. 15 lines; this has no bearing on the evaluation; it is simply for distribution to chairs), and abstract (c.200 words for individual contributions. For sessions with multiple participants, c.200 words on the proposal as a whole, and c.100 words on the contribution of each participant.) The deadline for all proposals is Thursday 15 January 2015. Notification of acceptance will be given by 15 April. Proposals should be submitted to:
