3rd Academic Conference on Music, Communication and Performance
NEWS: Given the coronavirus pandemic, the conference will not be held in Montecassiano, Italy, but online on the same dates, 27-28 June 2020, with some changes in the format. The participation fee has been reduced accordingly, as detailed in the Registration Form. It's a real pity there won't be the kind of Italian experience that scholars and musicians form all corners of the world could make until last year. But the situation calls for a prompt decision. We believe that holding the conference online, using a platform that is suited for both speeches and performances, is the right reaction for a conference aimed at discussing primarily whether "Classical Music is Dead". We all believe it's not!
Formats: 15-minute academic presentations (5 minutes of discussion) and artistic performances (30 minutes); poster presentations, round-tables, panels, and other innovative forms of presentation may also be considered. The conference language is English throughout
The covers of the book+CD of the 1st and 2nd editions
One volume+CD with ISBN number, containing papers and recordings selected and approved by the Scientific Committee, and whose authors/performers have given consent to publication and signed a copyright release, will be published following the conference. There will be no additional fee for inclusion in this publication
