Call For Papers

American Musical Instrument Society
Annual Meeting,
May 23-26, 2018
Bethlehem and Nazareth, Pennsylvania

The 2018 AMIS meeting will be hosted by Moravian College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, during May 23-26, 2018.

Proposals, due on or before November 15, 2017 (i.e., postmarked/time-stamped), are invited for presentations of either ten-minute length plus five minutes for discussion, or twenty-minute length plus ten minutes for discussion, though a few longer time slots will be available, for instance for group discussions. Presentations may take the form of traditional papers, roundtable panels, instrument demonstrations, video showings, or other forms suitable to a lecture room. Because of space limitations, poster sessions will not be possible.

Proposals must include an abstract or description of up to 300 words for presentations of any length, a 75-word biography of each presenter, a list of required A/V aids, and email contact information for a response, forthcoming during the first week of December 2017. Proposals on North American (including Mexican) topics and imported instruments used in North America will receive preference, but all subjects will be fairly considered.

Proposals should be sent as email attachments to:
