                          3rd Call for Papers
 2nd International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop (DLfM 2015)
             25th June 2015 (full day), Knoxville, TN, USA
 co-hosted with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2015

  Workshop website http://www.transforming-musicology.org/dlfm2015/


Deadline for final papers extended to Sunday 26th April; however draft
papers (at least title, authors, and abstract) must be submitted to
EasyChair by Wednesday 22nd April.


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.


Final paper submission deadline: 26th April 2015 (23:59 UTC-11)
Draft paper submission deadline: 22nd April 2015 (23:59 UTC-11)
Notification of acceptance: 22nd May 2015
Registration deadline for one author per paper: To be confirmed
Camera ready submission deadline: 1st June 2015 (14:00 UTC)


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 second edition of DLfM following a very successful
and well received workshop at Digital Libraries 2014, giving an
opportunity for the community to present and discuss developments in
the last year that tackle the agenda that emerged in London. In
particular we encourage participants to consider the theme of the main
conference - "Large, Dynamic and Ubiquitous" - and how this properties
are reflected in Music Digital Libraries and their application to

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 and "Large, Dynamic, and
   Ubiquitous" collections of both audio and music related data;

 - to set the agenda for work in the field to address these new
   challenges and opportunities.


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

 - Music Digital Libraries.

 - Digital Libraries in consideration of "Large, Dynamic and
   Ubiquitous" collections of audio and music related data.

 - 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

 - 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.


We invite full papers (up to 8 pages) or short and position papers (up
to 4 pages). Papers will be peer reviewed by 2-3 members of the
programme committee.

Please produce your paper using the ACM template and submit it in
draft to DLfM on EasyChair by 22nd April 2015 and the final version
before 26th April 2015 (see IMPORTANT DATES above).

Accepted papers will be included in our proceedings, which will be
published in the ACM Digital Libraries as part of the ICPS series.

The proceedings of last year's workshop, DLfM 2014, can be found in
the ACM Digital Library at:

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 guidelines may be rejected without review.

Please note that at least one author from each accepted paper must
attend the workshop to present their work, and in addition must be
registered for the workshop by a date, preceding the camera ready
deadline, which will be confirmed in due course (see IMPORTANT DATES
