Call for Proposals: ITG Research Room

The 47th International Trumpet Guild Conference will be held in Minneapolis, MN, May 30–June 3, 2023. The ITG Research Room Committee invites proposals for research presentations at the Conference.

Research Room offers a blind, peer-reviewed, international forum for students, professors, performers, industry professionals, and others to present experimental, action, qualitative, or quantitative research involving trumpet performance, repertoire, history, and/or pedagogy. Presentations are often developed from graduate or dissertation work, published material, industry collaborations, or other new research. Presentations should represent an original contribution to the field, based on some form of empirical evidence.

Successful applicants will be invited to present an academic poster at the conference during the Research Room poster session. Several submissions will also be selected for a 15-minute oral presentation during a Research Room paper session. Presenters selected for oral presentation are encouraged to employ audio-visual aids (PowerPoint), deliver handouts and summaries for the audience, and will receive a video recording of their presentation.

Abstracts of all successful submissions will be published in the conference digital program, posters and video-recordings of oral presentations will be published on an open-access basis through the ITG website ( Presenters will benefit from sharing their work with the ITG community both in-person at the conference and in publication to the ITG website, and generate exposure and connections that may lead to future collaboration, nationally or internationally.

Researchers should submit a 500-word abstract summarizing their thesis, sources, data collection, methods, and conclusions. Abstracts should be submitted electronically through the website and full details may be found on the submission form.

The deadline for submission is January 9, 2023.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts and accepted presenters will be notified by February 1, 2023. The ITG Research Room offers no financial incentives and presenters are responsible for all conference registration and travel expenses.

Questions should be directed via email to the ITG Research Room chair, Fred Sienkiewicz:
