16th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music
9–13 July 2014

Call for Papers

The Call for papers in now closed, but we encourage conference attendance also by those who will not be presenting. Registration for the Conference will be possible by the middle of February 2014.

The 16th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music will be hosted by the University of Music and Dramatic Arts Mozarteum in Salzburg from Wednesday 9 July to Sunday 13 July, 2014.

The programme committee invites proposals for:

  • Individual papers of 20 minutes in duration (followed by questions and discussion). Speakers will be grouped into sessions of three or four papers in related areas.
  • Lecture-recitals of 25 minutes in duration (with 5 minutes for discussion).
  • Round-table sessions of one and a half hours, including discussion.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Friday 10 January 2014.

The Conference language is English (without exception).
Proposals in any area of Baroque music are welcome.
Moreover, given the location of the venue, we encourage proposals dealing with Baroque music in Central Europe and Musical transfers across the Alps.

Individuals may submit one proposal in the form of an abstract (only in English) of not more than 250 words (individual papers, lecture-recitals), or not more than 350 words (round-table sessions).
The organisers anticipate that individual papers and some round-table sessions will be presented in parallel sessions, grouped by subject areas. Those areas will be determined by the nature of the proposals received.

Acceptance of proposals will be at the discretion of the organisers. The abstract should be preceded by information under the following headings:

  • Name
  • Institution
  • Postal address
  • Phone
  • Email Address

Abstracts shall be emailed to:
Ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Hochradner: by attachment (MS word file or .rtf format are required) – please back up the attachment with a plain-text version in the main email.



The 17th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music will be hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University (UK).
