Call for Papers
Proposals for papers, posters, or lecture-performances are invited for the 23rd conference on wind music of the International Society for Researching and Promoting Wind Music (IGEB) to be held in Wadgassen, Saarland, Germany, July 18-24, 2018.
The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2018
Theme: Wind music, new media and music education
Wind music is becoming increasingly popular in schools and conservatories in both general and specialized music courses. New media, such as iPads and music software, are finding their way into traditional education. This conference in Wadgassen will provide an opportunity for musicians to explore these new developments and discuss traditional approaches.
While papers focusing on the topic of the conference are especially invited, papers on any aspect of wind music, including research in progress, are welcome. The lectures can represent the entire field of humanities in relation to wind music: musicology, ethnology, philosophy, sociology, and educational sciences. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for discussion. Papers will be considered for future publication in the Alta Musica series. The conference languages are English and German, although papers in French, Spanish and Italian will be considered. The organizers encourage PowerPoint presentations and abstracts in English or German, especially in the case of presentations in French, Spanish or Italian. All are invited to take part, regardless of professional status, but presenters are expected to be members of IGEB.
Wadgassen is a municipality in the district of Saarlouis, in Saarland, Germany. It is situated on the river Saar, approximately six km. southeast of Saarlouis, and fifteen km. west of Saarbrücken. The conference will be centered in the Premonstratensian or Norbertine Abbey of Wadgassen, one of the centers of Western Renaissance history. The social program includes concerts and excursions in the region.
The winner of the IGEB Research Award, awarded to the scholar having completed an outstanding doctoral dissertation in the field of wind music within the last five years, will be asked to present a paper on his/her research.
