CALL FOR PRESENTERS
ISME Commission on Research in Music Education 27th International Pre-Conference Seminar
Research: Informing the Teaching and Learning of Life’s Journey Through Music
July 8 – 13, 2018
Hosted by Canadian University Dubai
To be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The aim of the 33rd ISME World Conference 2018 is to foster global understanding and cooperation among the world's music educators, by strengthening ties and sharing ideas about different aspects and issues within music education, in ways that promote music education for people of all ages throughout the world.
Music is an essential part of the human condition. For people of all ages, music plays an important and impactful role in their life experiences. Whether for leisure, livelihood, escape, or survival music helps many of us make sense of who we are and where we are going. The theme for the 2018 ISME world conference is Life’s Journey Through Music. This theme reflects the lifelong learning, lifespan development and life changing nature of music in people’s lives around the world. In Baku we will explore, interrogate, and perform ideas related to music as an integral component of the world we inhabit today and our hope for the future.
A milestone for research based understandings of life’s musical journey: The 50th anniversary of the ISME Research Commission. The ISME Research Commission has sought to a) examine through research important issues facing music education worldwide; b) develop, refine and demonstrate a range of research approaches, methods and techniques for critically examining issues in music education; c) provide a forum for the communication, critical analysis, and dissemination of research innovations in music education; and d) deepen and develop the research knowledge base for practitioners, policy makers, and researchers in music education. In Dubai we will celebrate 50 years of these endeavors at the 27th ISME Research Commission Pre-Conference Seminar with research presentations, discussions, and a look back on our history in an effort to deepen and develop the research knowledge base of music education.

1. Spoken Papers
1. Full Papers: To be considered for presentation at the 27th Research Commission Pre-Conference Seminar and publication in the Research Seminar Proceedings, submissions must be complete papers and cannot exceed 3,000 words, including explanatory notes and appendices, but excluding abstract and references. The paper should report recently completed research that contributes to the theory or practice of music education. No more than a total of two (2) tables and/or figures may be included. These papers must include an Abstract (no more than 400 words) for publication with the paper and follow APA style. All Full Paper submissions must also conform to the Guidelines for Authors provided on the submission website. Presenters will be allocated 30 minutes consisting of no more than 15 minutes for the presentation and 15-20 minutes or less for questions and discussion. Accepted papers will be distributed to presenters for reading prior to the seminar. Therefore, presenters are strongly encouraged not to simply read their paper, but rather structure the 15-minutes in a way that speaks to it and engenders an interactive discussion afterwards. Invited authors of full papers who attend will receive accommodations, meals and an excursion paid in full. Travel expenses will not be covered. Authors of accepted papers wishing to submit a revised version of their paper for possible publication elsewhere, after the Research Commission Seminar, will need to indicate in the paper, that in part it was previously published in the 27th Research Seminar Proceedings.
Poster submissions must include an Abstract of no more than 400 words. Abstracts will be published in the 27th Research Seminar Proceedings. Authors of accepted Posters will be allocated 5 minutes and may use ONE presentation slide for a spoken presentation. In addition, authors of accepted Posters are required to bring with them a Poster to display during the Pre-conference seminar. Questions and discussion of posters will take place during designated poster display times. Poster specifications (size, format, etc.) will be provided upon acceptance. Invited authors of posters will be responsible for all expenses. Suggested discounted rate accommodations will be provided.
MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS POLICY
The Research Commission only accepts one submission per senior author. Presenters at the Pre-conference Seminar are invited to present their paper as a Poster at the World Conference in Baku. Because 27th Research Seminar submissions will be reviewed by the Research Commission for inclusion in the Pre-Conference Seminar, presenters will not go through review again by the World Conference committee, but will be taken on recommendation of the Commission Chair for poster presentation at the World Conference.
PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT THE SAME PROPOSAL FOR A PRE-CONFERENCE COMMISSION SEMINAR AND THE WORLD CONFERENCE.
