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 email@example.com
. Submissions will be open from August 16through October 15. The Call
for Works will be out shortly.
