Call for Papers and Presentations.We seek submissions for research papers, assessment practice papers, and research posters that address the symposium theme and key questions.  All spoken paper and poster presentations will be presented in a pre-recorded online format. Authors will also have the opportunity to participate in live virtual discussion or question-and-answer sessions with conference attendees.  Details about the recording and submission process, as well as the discussion sessions, will be provided to the authors of accepted submissions.

The virtual structure of this symposium presents many opportunities for sessions that would not be possible in a live conference format.  We especially invite session proposals that will utilize the pre-recorded video session format to showcase current assessment practices, engage diverse stakeholders, and provide insights beyond a standard written paper. 

Details of the proposal submission process and registration for the symposium are available at http://reg.conferences.dce.ufl.edu/isame. Proposal submissions have been EXTENDED to Friday, December 18, 2020. Proposals may be considered for presentation as a paper session or as a poster presentation. All submissions will be reviewed by an expert international panel of music educators, and notifications will be completed by February 12, 2021. Early submissions are encouraged.

Submissions should not have been published at the time of presentation. We will consider work that is in progress at the time of submission if the work will be completed by the time of the symposium. 


All submissions must be submitted in English. The submission requirements are listed here. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements may be rejected.
