North West Postgraduate Music Exchange Conference

North West Postgraduate Music Exchange Conference
Saturday 16 March 2013, 11.00-18.00
School of Music, Bangor University

The music departments of the Universities of Manchester, Birmingham and Bangor are starting an exchange conference for music postgraduates. This conference will be open not just to these three institutions, but to all postgraduates studying music in the Midlands, the North West of England and the North West of Wales.

The conference provides an opportunity for young researchers to present their work in a congenial and friendly environment. Additionally, it will allow students to meet their peers and staff from other institutions.

In 2013, the conference is hosted by Bangor University. It will take place on Saturday, 16 March, from 11.00 to 18.00. It will be possible to travel back and forth on the same day. To those staying overnight, the organisers can offer free tickets for a concert with the BBC NOW Orchestra (Friday, 15 March).

Call For Papers

We encourage submissions from students in their early stages of study to present their work in musicology, theory, performance, composition (if compositions are to be performed the composer must make their own arrangements for performers/ensembles) and any other aspect of musical research. Presentations will be no longer than 20 minutes, followed by discussion.

Proposals are to be submitted as attachments by email to Twila Bakker ( They should include the following information: paper title, authors name, institutional affiliation, email, audio-visual requirements and an abstract of up to 250 words.

Submissions must be received by Friday 8 February 2013. The chosen presenters will be notified on 15 February 2013.
