AUSSCHREIBUNG – SEAMUS 2011 National Conference

From: „Christopher Hopkins [ISU]“ <hopkinsc@iastate.edu>
Date: 2010 May 12 9:33:12 PM EDT
Subject: SEAMUS 2011 National Conference

The SEAMUS Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of  
the Frost School of Music of the University of Miami as the site for  
the 2011 SEAMUS National Conference to be held January 20-22. Colby  
Leider and Kristine Burns will co-host.

Given January temperatures ranging from 60-70ºF this will indeed be a  
Springtime conference. Colby and Kristine have plans for some exciting  
peripheral events that may include a pre-conference outdoor excursion/
concert and special banquet. The 260-acre University of Miami campus  
is located in Coral Gables, Florida, with easy access from Miami  
International Airport (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale International Airport  

Electronic Submissions and Call for Works With the 2011 conference  
SEAMUS is making a permanent move to complete online submissions.  
Details of the process for submitting works online will be provided in  
an upcoming Call for Works.

The change to online submissions puts SEAMUS in line with other media-
intensive conferences and will have the benefit of streamlining the  
adjudication process, which given a substantial increase in the number  
of submissions over recent years has become a critical need.

For the 2011 conference the online submissions will have the added  
benefit of allowing us to maintain an October submissions deadline in  
spite of the need for earlier acceptance/confirmation notifications  
ahead of a January conference.

Christopher Hopkins, Director of Conferences, will host the  
submissions server with a technical team located at Iowa State  
University. For answers to questions about submissions formats and  
procedures not covered in the Call for Works please contact Chris at director_conferences@seamusonline.org
. Submissions will be open from August 16through October 15. The Call  
for Works will be out shortly.
