The MEI Board invites proposals for the organization of the 9th and 10th editions of the annual Music Encoding Conference, to be held in 2020 and 2021.

As many of you are aware, among its activities MEI oversees the organization of an annual conference, the Music Encoding Conference (MEC), to provide a meeting place for scholars interested in discussing the modeling, generation and uses of music encoding. While the conference has an emphasis on the development and uses of MEI, other contributions related to general approaches to music encoding are always welcome, as an opportunity for exchange between scholars from various research communities, including technologists, librarians, historians, and theorists.

In order to assist prospective organizers, the MEI Board has published ‹Hosting Guidelines for the Music Encoding Conference› at .  Historically, the conference has been organized by institutions involved in MEI, such as MEI member institutions or those hosting MEI-based projects, but proposals from any interested group or institution will be happily received, and ideas other than those expressed in the official document are welcome.  While MEC venues have alternated between Europe and North America in the past, there is no such requirement, so applications from anywhere are invited.

The deadline for sending proposals is 20 December 2019. The Board will notify bidders of its decision in late January, and we will jointly inform the MEI community through MEI-L thereafter. Bidding institutions should indicate clearly for which year they're applying. Successful bidders should be prepared to make a short presentation at the upcoming MEC in Boston, 26-29 May 2020.

The MEI Board is happy to discuss proposals at an early stage already. Please direct all proposals and inquiries to .

On behalf of the MEI Board, best wishes,
