CALL FOR PAPERS

4th International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop (DLfM 2017)

Saturday 28th October 2017

Shanghai Conservatory of Music, Shanghai, China

A satellite event of ISMIR 2017 <https://ismir2017.smcnus.org/>

<http://www.transforming-musicology.org/dlfm2017/>

In 2017 DLfM calls for paper submissions to two tracks: a 'proceedings
track' for short and full papers which will be presented at the
workshop and published in the workshop proceedings; and a 'Transforming
Musicology challenge' track for presented papers and posters.


WORKSHOP LOCATION

Shanghai is one of the most populous cities in the world, a major
international gateway to China and an important academic centre,
housing over thirty universities and colleges. As a location for
a satellite workshop of ISMIR, it is especially convenient, being
on the route many attendees will use to return home.

The Shanghai Conservatory of Music was one of the first in China to
offer higher education in music and has an international reputation
for the standard of its students and teaching staff. The Conservatory
also houses a substantial library and a Museum of Oriental Musical
Instruments.


BACKGROUND

Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide
multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more
urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of
music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context,
as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to
musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) workshop presents a venue
specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems
and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music
Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology,
technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital
Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with
music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple
representations of music across large-scale digital collections such
as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.

This, the fourth Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop, is a
satellite event of the annual International Society for Music
Information Retrieval (ISMIR) conference being held in nearby Suzhou,
and in particular encourages reports on the use of MIR methods and
technologies within Music Digital Library systems when applied to the
pursuit of musicological research.

Proceedings of previous DLfM workshops can be found in the ACM Digital
Library: <http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2970044>


WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

DLfM will focus on the implications of music on Digital Libraries and
Digital Libraries research when pushing the boundaries of contemporary
musicology, including the application of techniques as reported in
more technologically oriented fora such as ISMIR and ICMC.

This will be the fourth edition of DLfM following a very successful and
well received workshops at Digital Libraries 2014, JCDL 2015, and ISMIR
2016, giving an opportunity for the community to present and discuss
recent developments that address the challenges of effectively
combining technology with musicology through Digital Library systems
and their application.

The workshop objectives are:

- to act as a forum for reporting, presenting, and evaluating this
work and disseminating new approaches to advance the discipline;
- to create a venue for critically and constructively evaluating and
verifying the operation of Music Digital Libraries and the
applications and findings that flow from them;
- to consider the suitability of existing Music Digital Libraries,
particularly in light of the transformative methods and
applications emerging from musicology, large collections of both
audio and music related data, ‘big data’ method, and MIR;
- to set the agenda for work in the field to address these new
challenges and opportunities.


TOPICS

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Music Digital Libraries
- Applied MIR techniques in Music Digital Libraries and musicological
investigations using them
- Techniques for locating and accessing music in Very Large Digital
Libraries (e.g. HathiTrust, Internet Archive)
- Music data representations, including manuscripts/scores and audio
- Interfaces and access mechanisms for Music Digital Libraries.
- Digital Libraries in support of musicology and other scholarly
study; novel requirements and methodologies therein
- Digital Libraries for combination of resources in support of
musicology (e.g. combining audio, scores, bibliographic,
geographic, ethnomusicology, performance, etc.)
- User information needs and behaviour for Music Digital Libraries
- Identification/location of music (in all forms) in generic Digital
Libraries
- Mechanisms for combining multi-form music content within and
between Digital Libraries and other digital resources
- Information literacies for Music Digital Libraries
- Metadata and metadata schemas for music
- Application of Linked Data and Semantic Web techniques to Music
Digital Libraries, and for their access and organisation
- Optical Music Recognition
- Ontologies and categorisation of musics and music artefacts


SUBMISSIONS

Papers will be peer reviewed by 2-3 members of the programme committee.

Please produce your paper using the ACM template and submit it to DLfM
on EasyChair by 30 June 2017 (see IMPORTANT DATES).

All submitted papers must:

- be written in English;
- contain author names, affiliations, and email addresses;
- be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings template with a
Type 1 font no smaller than 9pt;
- be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform),
and formatted for A4 size.

It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their submissions
adhere strictly to the required format. Submissions that do not comply
with the above requirements may be rejected without review.

Please note that at least one author from each accepted paper must
attend the workshop to present their work.

SUBMISSIONS - PROCEEDINGS TRACK

We invite full papers (up to 8 pages) or short and position papers (up
to 4 pages). In addition to the general submission requirements above
(see SUBMISSIONS), we will require that camera-ready copy be received
before 15 September 2017 (see IMPORTANT DATES). At least one author
from each accepted paper must be registered by that date.


SUBMISSIONS - TRANSFORMING MUSICOLOGY CHALLENGE

What will the next generation of musicologists be studying? And how
will they carry out their research? What part will digital technology
play in the musicology of the future? And how will future musicologists
be using digital libraries?

The Transforming Musicology Challenge solicits short position paper
submissions to the Digital Libraries for Musicology Workshop of up to 2
pages (see SUBMISSIONS). Transforming Musicology Challenge papers
should describe, in detail, a musicological investigation or scenario
that uses, or might use in the future, technologies relevant to DLfM
(see the Topics section of the call). The ideal entry would speculate
on the kind work that, in the author's imagination, current
researchers' successors will be carrying out. While the primary focus
of Challenge papers should be musical scholarship, authors are
encouraged to relate research questions to the technical challenges
that must be addressed.

Musicology Challenge papers will be peer reviewed, and accepted papers
will be presented at the workshop as either part of a panel or a
poster. Transforming Musicology Challenge papers will not be included
in the main workshop proceedings, but will be compiled into a
supplement hosted on the workshop website.

While we encourage authors engage with the workshop through the
Transforming Musicology Challenge track, those who wish their papers to
appear in the main proceedings may prefer to submit a more detailed description of their work to the Proceedings Track as a short or long paper (see above).


IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission deadline (all tracks): 30th June 2017 (23:59 UTC-11)
Notification of acceptance: 3rd August 2017
Camera ready submission deadline: 15th September 2017
Workshop: 28th October 2017
