CFP: 8th International Conference on Digital Libraries for Musicology (In
Association with IAML 2021), July 28-30, 2021

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) conference presents a venue for
those engaging with Digital Library systems and content in the domain of
music and musicology. It provides a forum for musicians, musicologists,
librarians, and technologists to share findings and expertise.


The 8th DLfM conference (https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk
<https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk/home>), to be held online, welcomes
contributions related to any aspect of digital libraries and musicology,
including topics related to musical archiving and retrieval, cataloguing
and classification, musical databases, special collections, music encodings
and representations, computational musicology, or music information
retrieval (MIR). This year’s conference will be held in association with
the online IAML Congress (https://www.iaml.info/congresses/2021-online
and will feature a joint paper session as well as a joint poster session.
In bringing these two conferences together we aim to encourage new
collaborations and foster larger group discussions surrounding prominent
issues in the digital humanities.

This year’s theme of “bridging the gap” is designed to bring together
scholars working across the niche subfields of digital libraries and
humanities, computational musicology, and MIR with the aim of broadening
the understanding of the needs, obstacles, and optimal outcomes within each
of these subfields in the DLfM community, and how outcomes in one area can
best be applied to (or served by) another.

The conference strongly encourages papers and posters that address this
year’s theme, however, we welcome all papers addressing all traditional
topics that fall under the scope of DLfM. Specific examples of topics
traditionally covered at DLfM can be found at https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk
<https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk/home>. We are pleased to announce our
proceedings will again be published in ACM ICPS this year.

In light of the challenges surrounding conference planning and travel
during a pandemic, this year’s DLfM conference will be entirely virtual.
The conference organizers are striving to make an engaging and interactive
conference while we patiently and eagerly anticipate a return to in-person
conferences in 2022.
