CfP: MedRen 2016 in Sheffield

We welcome proposals for individual papers of 20 mins, “lightning talks” of 10 mins, round tables, workshops, and posters. We particularly encourage proposals for themed sessions of 3 or 4 papers. We are delighted to announce that we will have a ‘conference consort’, 4D/O Beta, available for any delegates to use in delivering their papers. The consort will comprise singer-musicologists experienced in reading from period notation. Paper proposers may wish to use the consort simply for live musical examples, or to build their paper around this facility. Please state in your proposal if you wish to include the consort in your presentation. All proposals should include:

Individual abstracts should be no longer than 200 words. Themed session abstracts should also include an additional description (no longer than 200 words) of the proposed theme. Please send your abstract to

If intending to use the conference consort, please also email to discuss your requirements.

The deadline for proposals is 9am GMT on Monday 8 Feb 2016.
