Deadline: 29 June 2019 (abstracts); 6 July 2019 (full papers), 18 July 2019 (TROMPA Project position papers)

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) conference 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 Sixth Digital Libraries for Musicology conference, follows previous workshops in London, Knoxville, New York, Shanghai, and Paris. In 2019, DLfM is again proud to be a satellite event of the annual International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) conference which is being held in Delft, 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.


DLfM will focus on the implications of music for 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 sixth edition of DLfM following very successful and well received previous workshops (in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018), 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 conference 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 explore how digital libraries and digital musicology can combine to offer richer online access to online music collections;
to set the agenda for work in the field to address these new challenges and opportunities.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Building and managing digital music collections
Optical Music Recognition
Information literacies for Music Digital Libraries
Data quality assessment
Access, interfaces and ergonomics
Interfaces and access mechanisms for Music Digital Libraries
Identification/location of music (in all forms) in generic Digital Libraries
Techniques for locating and accessing music in Very Large Digital Libraries (e.g. HathiTrust, Internet Archive) and musical corpus-building at scale
Mechanisms for combining multi-form music content within and between Digital Libraries and other digital resources
User information needs and behaviour for Music Digital Libraries
Musicological Knowledge
Music data representations, including manuscripts/scores and audio
Applied MIR techniques in Music Digital Libraries and musicological investigations using them
Extraction of musical concepts from symbolic notation and audio data
Metadata and metadata schemas for music
Application of Linked Data and Semantic Web techniques to Music Digital Libraries, and for their access and organisation
Ontologies and categorisation of musics and music artefacts
Improving data for musicology
Digital Libraries which enrich public access to music, music-cultural, and music-ephemera material online
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.)

Proceedings track

We invite full papers (up to 8 pages excluding references) or short and position papers (up to 4 pages excluding references). In addition to the general submission requirements below, we will require that camera-ready copy be received before 21st September 2019, and that at least one author per accepted paper is registered for DLfM by that date.

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

Please submit an abstract to EasyChair by 21th June 2019, and produce your paper using the ACM template and submit it to DLfM on EasyChair by 28th June 2019.

All submitted papers must:
be written in English;
contain author names, affiliations and e-mail addresses;
be in PDF format (please ensure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform), and formatted for A4 size.

Page limits for submitted papers apply to all text, but exclude the bibliography (i.e. references can be included on pages over the specified limits).

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 of each accepted paper must attend the conference to present their work.

TROMPA Project Challenge
Diverse public domain collections exposing materials of scholarly musicological interest are published on the Web. How will scholars benefit from the interlinking of such repositories? What research questions will be supported by unified access to collections of digitised score images, score encodings, textual and audio-visual materials, and other multimodal data sources? What kinds of holistic interpretive and analytical insights can scholars contribute to enrich such interconnected repositories, and how can they be supported in
doing so?  

The TROMPA Project Challenge solicits short position papers addressing these questions as submissions of up to 2 pages to DLfM. 

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

While we encourage authors to engage with DLfM through the TROMPA Project 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).

TROMPA (trompamusic.eu <https://trompamusic.eu/>) is an EU-funded project (2018-2021) dedicated to massively enriching and democratising the heritage of classical music, and involving content owners, scholars, performers, choral singers and music enthusiasts of every kind. The project employs and improves state-of-the-art technology, engaging thousands of music-loving citizens to work with the technology, give feedback on algorithmic results, and annotate the data according to their personal expertise.

Abstract submission deadline: 21th June 2019 (23:59 UTC-11)
Paper submission deadline: 28th June 2019 (23:59 UTC-11)
Notification of acceptance: 17th August 2019
Camera ready submission deadline: 21st September 2019
Conference: 9th November 2019

DLfM proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library through the ICPS series.
