Methods and Goals of Digital Musicology – a Marketplace of Current Research

At the annual conference of the Gesellschaft für Musikforschung 2023 in Saarbrücken, the special interest groups Digital Musicology and Freie Forschungsinstitute, together with NFDI4Culture, are organising a marketplace of current research to provide space for the heterogeneous landscape of digital music research and its current topics.

It will take place on Thursday, 5 October 2023, between 14:00 and 17:30.

The marketplace will present current developments, ideas, methods, tools and standards in digital musicology and invite visitors to the annual conference to try them out and discuss them interactively. About 15 to 20 thematic stations are planned, representing the entire spectrum of digital musicology. The aim is not to present individual projects, but rather overarching methods and work that have been opening up new research spaces and perspectives – in some cases for many years.

The aim of this marketplace is to enter into constructive discussion with all music researchers in order to sound out previous and future research possibilities, but also to make clear the necessities and requirements for today's research and teaching with regard to digital competence and infrastructure.

In order to facilitate a direct exchange at this marketplace, the stations should provide at least two to three people during the afternoon and offer opportunities for active experimentation.

In addition, an introduction to the topic can be given with the help of a presentation or a poster.
For this purpose, monitors are available at the stands – laptops must be brought by the contributors themselves.

A theme slam is planned at the beginning of the event to give all visitors a brief overview of the marketplace.

Proposals for contributions to this science marketplace should be submitted
