IASPM 2017 Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings (edited by Julia Merrill) will be published as print and ebook in the “Systematische Musikwissenschaft” series of the Springer, Heidelberg. As an experiment new to IASPM, the proceedings will be prepared IN ADVANCE and made available at the time of the conference. All contributors will have free online-access to the proceedings, as well as many University libraries (via SpringerLink).

The print version of the book can be obtained on site at a 30% discount or be ordered separately. We will know more about prices once the dimensions of the proceedings are settled.  In order to be included in the proceedings, you are required to submit a formatteted and proof-read full-paper of your presentation both as MS WORD or LIBRE OFFICE and PDF-files by Dec 23, 2016 to the address iaspm2017submissions@uni-kassel.de (Note: This deadline cannot be extended or else the book will not be ready in time – no exceptions!).

Templates for formatting (MS Word and Libre Office) must be used and can be downloaded below, maximum length is 10 PDF-pages including references (approx. 3500 words). This space need not be filled, you may also submit an extended abstract with just a few pages. The arrangement includes that all rights will go to Springer, so please do not contribute if you do not agree. Also, please make sure you do not include copyrighted lyrics or pictures and the like (more details in the templates).

Template downloads:

In case of panels, each of your panelists can contribute a separate text or you can join something together creatively using the templates provided. In the latter case, we would prefer to correspond with just one person. And in fact, we’d appreciate if not each of the 43 panels would fill complete 40 pages.
