The study of world music traditions is receiving increasing attention in all areas of music research, including ethnomusicology, music theory and analysis, music history, music psychology, and music information retrieval. Analytical Approaches to World Music 2016 is the fourth in a series of conferences that seek to bring together scholars of diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds, fostering interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue, and promoting new approaches and methodologies for the study of world music.

We welcome submissions that examine world musical traditions from a wide variety of analytical and theoretical angles, including (but not limited to) ethnographic, historical, formal, computational, and cognitive perspectives. Paper proposals should not exceed 700 words, and will be allowed 30 minutes for presentation plus 15 minutes for discussion. Alternative formats such as posters, special sessions, and workshops will also be considered.

The submission deadline is December 1, 2015. Notification of acceptance will be sent via email in early February 2016.

Submissions will be accepted electronically starting mid-June. In the meantime, please direct all questions to
