  • 9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology. Technology is the theme of CIM14, which will be held on 04 - 06 December 2014 at Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung (National Institute for Music Research), in Berlin, Germany.  Technology is omnipresent in our lives and it plays an important role in contemporary social development, particularly in the so-called Westernised world. The role of technology in our daily life is even more so remarkable with the increasing ubiquity of technology, especially computing technology, in various activities of our contemporary society, music being a notable example. Yet, there is no single universally accepted definition of "technology".

    CIM14 will be aimed at all discourses on the interplay between technology and music, including collaborations between sciences and humanities, interactions between academic research and musical practice, and interdisciplinary combinations that are innovative, unusual, and creative. Abstract submission deadline has expired. For further details please click here
