> Music encoding is now a prominent feature of various areas in musicology
> and music librarianship. The encoding of symbolic music data provides a
> foundation for a wide range of scholarship, and over the last several
> years, has garnered a great deal of attention in the digital humanities.
> This conference intends to provide an overview of the current state of
> data modeling, generation, and use, and aims to introduce new
> perspectives on topics in the fields of traditional and computational
> musicology, music librarianship, and scholarly editing, as well as in the
> broader area of digital humanities.
> With its dual focus on music encoding and editing in the context of the
> digital humanities, the Program Committee is happy to announce keynote
> lectures by Frans Wiering (Universiteit Utrecht), and Daniel Pitti
> (University of Virginia), both distinguished scholars in their respective
> fields of musicology and markup technologies in the digital humanities.
