Monday 26 - Friday 30 July


Dear IAML Members, Dear Colleagues and Friends,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its increasing spread, the IAML Board and the Organizing Committee of the IAML Congress 2020 have decided to postpone the Congress in Prague to 2022 (24 - 29 July).

The IAML Online Congress 2021 will take place via the Zoom platform
from Monday 26 until Friday 30 July. The programme will feature a
mixture of paper and poster sessions, panel discussions, and social
hour sessions, as well as the General Assembly and other business
meetings. Sessions will be scheduled to make it possible for members
in all parts of the world to participate during the course of the week.

We invite papers and posters addressing issues of current professional
concern, including (but not limited to) the impact of the Covid-19
pandemic, user and public engagement, training, digital humanities,
music encoding, issues of diversity and inclusion, and copyright.
Proposals that seek to encourage discussion and interaction are
especially encouraged.


Paper proposals should be submitted here:

Poster sessions will take the form of short presentations (approximately 5 minutes) followed by questions and discussion. Poster proposals should be submitted here:

 The submission deadline is Wednesday 31 March 2021 (midnight UTC).

 This year’s Congress will be held in association with the Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) conference(link is external), which takes place on Thursday 29 July. A joint IAML/DLfM session is planned for Friday 30 July.

The preliminary programme will be made available by 1 June 2021.
