the following areas: publishing (Editor, JRMA, Professor Rachel
Cowgill, University of Cardiff), postgraduate training (Director, IMR,

Officer, Helen Thomas) and funding. Roundtable discussion about
directions in music research will be led by Professor Christopher
Wilson (University of Hull). Delegates will be given the opportunity
to sign up for individual C.V. sessions with established scholars from
the University of Hull and RMA Council.

Proposals are invited in the following categories (details of
