Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) 2018

5th International Conference on Digital Libraries for Musicology,
Paris 2018

A satellite event of ISMIR 2018.

In 2018 DLfM calls for paper submissions to two tracks: a ‘proceedings track’ for short and full papers; and a ‘Unlocking Musicology challenge’ track for position papers reporting novel digital routes for disseminating and engaging musicology beyond academia.

Colleagues particularly interested in modelling audio and music, or are using semantic web technologies in their music-related research are also encouraged to consider our sister workshop, Semantic Applications for Audio and Music to be held at Monterey, California on October 9, 2018.
