Dear Friends,

 

We are pleased to announce the call for programs for the CIME/ICEM 40th General Assembly organized by the Polish Society for Electroacoustic Music (PSeME) in the city of Krakow, Poland. Soon, we will provide more information regarding the General Assembly at http://www.cime-icem.net. I am attaching the Call for Submissions and the Application Form. Both Concert Submission and Conference Presentation proposals must be submitted by September 15, 2021.

 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we couldn’t stay with our original plan for the 40th GA, so, at this last moment, Marek Choloniewski has offered to organize the General Assembly in Krakow. Please keep in mind that this is an early announcement to get the process rolling. Currently, the Krzysztof Penderecki Academy of Music is closed for summer break, and therefore several details will be confirmed and announced to you by August 20. This includes the possibility of synchronizing the GA with the International conference organized by SME at the Academy of Music, an annual event of the Studio since 2012.

 

Each National Federation or Organization, Institution, and Associate Member may submit music for concert programming consideration. The recommended duration of the submitted program is 20 minutes for CIME members attending in person the GA in Kraków and 10 minutes for members not attending. Please list the submitted works in order of preference. All submissions must be sent through National Federations or OIA Members; no individual submissions are accepted.

 

Submissions can include works for fixed audio, video music, sound art, new interfaces, and instrument(s) with electronics. The organizer will do the best to secure performers for mixed pieces, but due to time constraints, it is recommended for the composers to secure the performer(s). The conference’s theme is Strefa (Zone), and we invite all delegates to submit an abstract of 500 words maximum for paper presentation consideration. Online presentations are possible via Skype. For more information about the conference please see the attached pdf document. Again, I would like to remind you that we will confirm the combination of the GA with the conference by August 20.

 

All delegates should cover their cost of travel, accommodation, and lodging. Concert submissions and Conference presentation proposals must be submitted by September 30, 2022. After two General Assemblies of remote meetings and online events, we are returning in person, and your attendance would be very much appreciated. Please direct any questions about the submission process directly to Marek Choloniewski <marek.choloniewski@gmail.com>.

 

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Kraków!

On behalf of the Board of directors
