Music encoding is a critical component of the emerging fields of digital
musicology, digital editions, symbolic music information retrieval, and
others. At the centre of these fields, the Music Encoding Conference has

advances in their fields. The Music Encoding Conference is the annual
focal point for the Music Encoding Initiative community
(http://music-encoding.org), but members from all encoding and analysis
communities are welcome to participate.

workshops are encouraged. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

- music encoding as a theoretical approach for research

- rendering of symbolic music data in audio and graphical forms
