International Conference on Digital Libraries for Musicology (In Association with ISMIR 2023), 10 November 2023
In this email you will find two different calls for posters: (1) regular poster submission and (2) software-sustainability challenge poster submissions. Please be mindful that each of them has their own deadlines and instructions.
The 10th DLfM conference (https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk <https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk/home>), held at the Biblioteca del Conservatorio di Milano, 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 again be held in association with the ISIMIR Congress (https://ismir2023.ismir.net/) 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 DLfM theme, “cultural heritage preservation of music documents,” is aimed to stimulate discussions around the use of MIR technologies in symbolic music and their implications for cultural heritage preservation. Scores and music documents have been digitized by libraries and archives worldwide for preservation and access. Some of these digital libraries' resources are being converted into symbolic files representing the music content of the documents. These symbolic music files, in turn, allow for preservation and access to the music content and more interaction with the music itself—through rendering, playback, search, and computational music analysis.

The conference strongly encourages posters that address this year’s theme; however, we welcome all posters addressing all traditional topics that fall under the scope of DLfM. Posters will be permanently placed on the DLfM website, and poster presenters will have the opportunity to present their work in a dedicated poster session. More details will be announced on the DLfM website soon (https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk <https://dlfm.web.ox.ac.uk/home>).
IMPORTANT DATES (AoE <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anywhere_on_Earth>)
Poster abstract submission deadline: September 08, 2023
Notification of Acceptance: September 15, 2023
Conference: November 10, 2023
An abstract of the proposed poster of no more than 500 words must be submitted by September 08, 2023. Abstracts are to be emailed to: dlfm2022 at easychair.org <mailto:dlfm2022 at easychair.org> Details for poster formats will be updated to the DLfM website soon, and instructions will be emailed to authors following the review period. Abstracts will be reviewed and decisions returned by September 15, 2023.  
What are the barriers to the sustainability, maintainability, and longevity of the systems and services that support digital library use in musicology? What effect do concerns about sustainability have? What would a sustainable digital library infrastructure look like?
The Software Sustainability Challenge solicits short position papers, articulating problems, requirements, and solutions on the topic of sustainability of systems and services which support digital library use in musicology. We welcome speculative work, and submissions that explore particular problems, as well as those that suggest solutions.
Software Sustainability Challenge submission should be no more than 2-pages long, and use the ACM sigconf template (for more details, see the main conference Call For Papers). They will be peer reviewed, and accepted submissions will be presented at the conference as either part of a panel or lightning talk and/or within a poster session (as determined by the Programme Chair). Challenge submissions will not be included in the main DLfM proceedings, but will be published on the conference website; they will additionally be used (with appropriate credit given) to inform a report into Digital Musicology for the UK Software Sustainability Institute.
Authors should use headings from the following list to structure their submissions, addressing implications for sustainability in all relevant sections, and using as many as are applicable for their scenario:
·       Nature and purpose of the sustainable tool or resource
·       Audience and users, disciplines and subjects
·       Position within the research lifecycle
·       Means of access and accessibility
·       Current and future requirements, or implementations
·       Challenges for sustainability
·       Future directions
Challenge contributions must be submitted via the DLfM 2023 EasyChair <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dlfm2023> page by Friday 29 September.
