The University of Ottawa Graduate Music Student Society is pleased to announce its 2015 annual Graduate Music Colloquium, to be held at Perez Hall on Friday, March 13th.

The colloquium will feature an address by keynote speaker Dr. Kimberly Francis from the University of Guelph.

     The aim of the conference is to provide a congenial environment in which graduate students can present their research and form professional connections.

The theme of this year's conference is “Defy the conventional.” Graduate students in areas including, but not limited to musicology, music theory, piano pedagogy, performance practice and ethnomusicology are invited to submit proposals for papers or lecture recitals that engage imaginatively with this broad theme. 

     Submissions should be submitted electronically and include a title and an abstract of a maximum length of 250 words in an attached file, in which neither the author’s name or any other identifying information should be indicated. In the body of the email, please include your name, academic affiliation, contact information and any audio-visual requirements.

Papers should not exceed 20 minutes, and each presentation will be followed by a 10-minute period for questions and discussion. Colloquium papers may be in French or English.
