Updated Call for Research Proposals

In light of the recent announcement that the #ITG2021 Conference will be conducted virtually, the deadline for submissions has been extended to Monday, January 4th. Guidelines for submission of proposals are otherwise unchanged and can still be found at https://www.itgconference.org/2021-research-room/. Accepted proposals will present in a virtual poster session and/or a virtual paper session. Full updated details follow below.
Revised 2021 Call for Research Proposals
The 45th International Trumpet Guild Conference will be held virtually on June 1–5, 2021. The ITG Research Room Committee welcomes proposals for research presentations at the Conference. The ITG Research Room offers a blind, peer-reviewed, international research forum for performers, professors, and students to present experimental, action, qualitative, or quantitative research involving trumpet performance, repertoire, and/or pedagogy. Presentations are often developed from graduate or dissertation work, published material, or other new research. Presentations should represent an original contribution to the field, grounded in empirical evidence.

All successful applicants will be invited to present a virtual academic poster at the conference to be presented asynchronously. Several submissions will also be selected to submit a pre-recorded 15-minute oral presentation that will be broadcast during a Research Room virtual paper session. All successful proposal abstracts will be published in the Conference’s electronic program. Presenters will benefit from sharing their work with fellow ITG Members to generate exposure and connections that may lead to future collaboration, nationally or internationally. 
All accepted proposals will participate in the virtual poster session by creating a digital poster and a brief 1-minute video pitch about the poster (the virtual equivalent of your “elevator pitch” to someone in an in-person poster session). Both will be presented asynchronously during the conference and archived at TrumpetGuild.org for members. Audience members will be encouraged to follow-up with presenters directly.

Presenters selected for oral presentation will record a video lecture-presentation and are encouraged to utilize audio-visual aids (Powerpoint) and create downloadable handouts for the audience. Presentation recordings will be finalized by mid-March for synchronous presentation during the conference and will be archived as a members-only resource at TrumpetGuild.org.

Researchers should submit a 500-word abstract summarizing their thesis, sources, data collection, methods, and conclusions. Abstracts should be submitted electronically at https://www.itgconference.org/2021-research-room/ and full details are also found on the submission form.

The deadline for Submission is January 4, 2021 (11:59pm).

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts and accepted proposal authors will be notified in January 2021. The ITG Research Room offers no financial incentives and presenters are responsible for conference registration expenses.

Questions should be directed via email to the ITG Research Room chair, Fred Sienkiewicz: fred.sienkiewicz@vanderbilt.edu
