The ICMS is a biannual conference to provide a platform for presentations and discussions of recent developments and future trends in Musical Semiotics. It has been held since 1986 as part of the International Project on Musical Signification. ICMS9 is the ninth edition of the congress.
This year the organizers especially encourage submissions on topics such as: musical ‘gesture’; ‘feeling, emotion and meaning’, today; bodily roots of the musical mind; metaphor in music; image and embodied schemata in musical semiosis, composition and analysis; synaesthesia and transductions ‘interartes’; body as musical medium; etc.
You are invited to attend the conference and/or to submit a proposal for a presentation no longer than 20 minutes. Proposals for round tables will also be considered. The proceedings of the Congress will be published.
The official languages of the Congress are English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. All speakers are requested to provide a short summary of their paper in English OR Italian.
