CALL FOR PAPERS: "Interdisciplinary Musicology", Aug 30-Sep 3 2011, SCOTLAND

http://www.n-ism.org/CIM2011

CIM11, Glasgow Scotland Convenors: Science and Music Research Group, Glasgow University School of Engineering and Computing, Glasgow Caledonian University

Abstracts should be submitted via the conference website
http://www.n-ism.org/CIM2011
The text must be in English.

As the contrasting approaches and methods of sciences, humanities and 
arts continue to interpenetrate and cross-fertilize, musicologists 
have been posing new questions about the culture, history, physics, 
biology, psychology and sociology of music performance. CIM11 will 
provide a unique opportunity for music performance researchers to 
achieve new trans-disciplinary synergies by working together with 
colleagues with contrasting epistemological backgrounds.

The CIM series involves all musicological sub-disciplines and 
paradigms (analytical, applied, comparative, cultural, empirical, 
ethnological, historical, popular, scientific, systematic, 
theoretical) and all musically relevant disciplines (acoustics, 
aesthetics, anthropology, archeology, art history and theory, 
biology, composition, computing, cultural studies, economics, 
education, ethnology, gender studies, history, linguistics, literary 
studies, mathematics, medicine, music theory and analysis, 
neurosciences, perception, performance, philosophy, physiology, 
prehistory, psychoacoustics, psychology, religious studies). For 
further information see http://www.uni-graz.at/~parncutt/cim/.

Each submission must have at least two authors who represent two of 
the following three broad areas:
* Humanities such as aesthetics, anthropology, archeology, art 
history and theory, cultural studies, ethnology, linguistics, 
literary studies, music history, ethnomusicology, cultural studies, 
prehistory, theoretical sociology, philosophy, semiotics, sociology 
and music theory/analysis
* Sciences such as acoustics, biology, computing, linguistics, 
mathematics, perception, psychoacoustics, empirical psychology and 
sociology, physiology, statistics and computer science
* Practically oriented disciplines including performance, 
composition, education, engineering, medicine and therapy

All abstract submissions to CIM11 must address an issue in music 
performance, e.g.:
* Physical, biological, psychological and cultural constraints 
on performance
* Creativity: composition, interpretation, improvisation, 
expression
* Movement, gesture, dance, corporality, sexuality, gender
* Performance skills and their acquisition
* Timing and intonation
* Practice, rehearsal, ensemble, conducting
* Measurement, analysis and interpretation of performance 
attributes
* Coping with performance situations, interactions, injuries
* Performance on specific instruments including the voice
* Electronic performance interfaces and environments
* Comparisons across musical styles, genres, cultures
* Sociology, politics and economics of performers and performance

PS.....it will be noted (http://www.n-ism.org/CIM2011) that CIM11 is 
being held concurrently with two other conferences:
The Anatomy of Listening (sponsored by the Royal Society of 
Edinburgh) and
The Workshop on International Cross-Disciplinary Research 
Collaboration in Science and Music (sponsored by Universitas 21)
