It might be useful to note that the deadline for paper submission is
approaching for the Electroacoustic Music Studies EMS05 conference. The 2005
conference is sponsored by Electroacoustic Music Studies Network, the
Universities of Concordia, McGill/CIRMMT and Universite de Montreal and
Electronic Music Foundation.

As a reminder, here is the original post.

Call for papers
Electroacoustic Music Studies Network (EMS) - International Conference
EMS05 - Electroacoustic Music Studies.
A century of innovation involving sound and technology
Resources, Discourse, Analytical Tools

Scientific Committee
> Marc BATTIER (MINT, Sorbonne)
> Philippe DEPALLE (McGill University)
> Leigh LANDY (MTI ­ De Montfort University)
> Stephen McADAMS (CIRMMT/ McGill University)
> Rosemary MOUNTAIN (Hexagram/Concordia)
> Philippe DEPALLE (CIRMMT/ McGill University)
> Marcelo M. WANDERLEY (CIRMMT/ McGill University)

Time and place: 19-22 October, 2005 ­ Montreal, Quebec, Canada
> The EMS conference is organized every two years through the initiative of the
> Electroacoustic Music Studies Network, an international team which aims to
> encourage reflection on the better understanding of electroacoustic music and
> its genesis, appearance and development over the span of a century. The
> organizers are all engaged in the key areas of debate and actively seeking the
> development of solutions.
> The first conference, in October 2003, was a result of the initiatives of De
> Montfort University (UK), the University of Paris-Sorbonne (France), and
> INA/GRM (France). It took place at the Georges-Pompidou Centre in Paris,
> within the auspices of IRCAM¹s Résonances 2003. Selected papers were
> published in issue 9/1 of Organised Sound.

The special theme of EMS-05 is:
Electroacoustic Music Studies ­ Sound in Multimedia Contexts
> From the advent of the first electric instruments, the phonograph, radio,
> telephone, and subsequent electronic and digital inventions, the approaches to
> technologies relevant to the art of sound have been limited only by the
> imagination of the musician. In recent years, there seems to have been a
> proliferation of studies relating to music incorporating these technologies.
> However, the investigation of such a varied musical repertoire raises a number
> of issues that the EMS conferences wish to examine. The themes of the
> conference therefore emphasize questions of resources, discourse, and
> analytical tools relevant to electroacoustic musics.
1) Sources and resources
> - What types of materials are being or should be documented?
> - How does one create, expand, preserve and offer access to collections?
> - What opportunities exist for exchange and collaboration?
> - How can we help make the electroacoustic music repertoire more accessible?
2) Discourse / analysis of electroacoustic musics
> - What types of discourse are relevant to electroacoustic works?
> - Which forms of representation and which approaches to analysis are useful?
> - Which analytical methods are currently being developed?
> - How can one adapt existent analytical methods of music to electroacoustic
> works, many of which involve no prescriptive notation?
> - How can we further develop the field of study of electroacoustic musics?

3) Analytical tools
> - How are analytical tools being produced and disseminated in the community?
> - What means are available for communicating the sonic form through symbolic
> and graphic representations?
> - Does the study of electroacoustic musics require specifically-designed tools
> or can it take advantage of methods conceived for other musics?

4) Taxonomy, terminology, and aesthetic diversity
> - What systems of classification are in use or should be developed?
> - How can we become more consistent in our use of terminology in a field as
> dynamic as electroacoustic music?
> - Are there aesthetic questions that are specific to electroacoustic music?
Format for presentations:
Spoken presentations
> Proposals for spoken presentations should be submitted in the form of an
> extended abstract (minimum 2 pages) accompanied by a detailed C.V. and list of
> publications. The abstract should be ready for publication if the proposal is
> accepted. The duration of each paper will be 30 minutes (not including the
> question period). The papers may be given in English or French. It is
> anticipated that simultaneous translation will be provided. Multimedia
> support will be provided in the form of video projector (for laptops),
> overhead projector, CD player, and sound system.
> A programme containing the paper abstracts will be distributed.
> Proposals for poster sessions are also invited; selected posters will be
> presented in the conference area at McGill University. The deadline for
> poster proposal submissions is the same as that for paper submissions.
> 19 October, 2005 ­ Opening of EMS-05 at the University of Montreal
> 20-22 October, 2005 ­ Conference sessions (McGill University) and concerts
> (Concordia University)
Guidelines for submissions
> Deadline for receipt of proposals (abstracts and CVs of contributors): Tuesday
> March 1, 2005
