--- 2013 ARSC CONFERENCE: CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS ---
Proposal deadline: January 4, 2013
The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for
presentations at its 47th annual conference, to be held May 15-18, 2013, in
Kansas City, Missouri.
ARSC welcomes papers on the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in
all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods. We
seek papers and panels that are informative, display a passion for their
subjects, and include compelling audio and visual content.
For this conference, we encourage presentations related to recording in the
Kansas City area and surrounding region. Is there an artist, label, or other
aspect of the industry you've been working on? Preservation, archives
management, or research technique that might be of interest to others? Share
your special interests with our engaged community of collectors, historians,
musicians, preservationists, and archivists.
At the conference, we plan to have a separate critical listening room
available for demonstrations. Seating 8-10 people, this space can be used
for highly-targeted presentations where excellent sound is needed; or as an
"appendix" to a paper presentation to a large audience. If your entire
presentation will take place in this space, you may request 20 or 35
minutes. If you are requesting an opportunity to play examples supplementing
a paper, you will be allotted an additional 15 minutes at a different time.
Time permitting, you may be given more than one slot to accommodate a larger
number of people, but split into smaller groups. Questions about the
critical listening room should be directed to George Blood,

approximately one month thereafter.
