Call for Forum Session Proposals

We invite you to participate in the 2016 National Group Piano and Piano Pedagogy Forum. We are seeking proposals for sessions in three formats:

  • Performances
  • Lightning talks
  • Poster presentations

Details regarding submission requirements for each format are below. The first author listed on the proposal will be notified of the committee’s proposal decision by December 2015. Presenters must register for the GP3 2016 Forum. All travel expenses and registration fees are the responsibility of the presenters.

We look forward to seeing you in Oberlin! Questions? Contact Tonya Schauer.

Performances
The conference will include one recital featuring performances of teaching repertoire. This repertoire should be music you feel is worth sharing. The piece does not have to be new, but should be interesting and fresh. You should submit a proposal to perform a single piece that is five minutes or less in length. Solos, duets, or ensembles for one piano are welcome.

Your submission should include the following:

  • A 50-word repertoire description
  • A link to a YouTube video of you performing your proposed selection
  • A 35-word bio
  • A recent headshot
  • Your contact information: name, institutional affiliation (if appropriate), e-mail, telephone
Submit Your Performance Proposal Now

Lightning Talks
We are accepting proposals for five-minute presentations of teaching tips or demonstrations. If you wish to include a visual element, PowerPoint and Keynote slides will be welcome. The talks should be practical in nature, concise and succinct.

Your submission should include the following:

  • A 250-word abstract or session description
  • A 35-word bio
  • A recent headshot
  • Your contact information: name, institutional affiliation (if appropriate), email, telephone

Poster Presentations
We are looking for dynamic poster presentations featuring research or practical teaching tips in both traditional print (poster) and digital (computer-aided) formats, or in a combination of print and digital. If you choose a digital format, we suggest using PowerPoint, Prezi or other presentation software that can “loop” through the material.

Your submission should include the following:

  • A 250-word abstract or poster description
  • A preliminary graphic of the poster, or a description of how you plan to present the digital “poster”
  • A 35-word bio
  • A recent headshot
  • Your contact information: name, institutional affiliation (if appropriate), email, telephone

For selected poster presenters:

  • Tables and easels will be provided. You must provide your own poster board, or for digital presentations, provide your own computer, tablet, or other required hardware.
  • Plan to provide handouts and/or business cards for viewers that include your name and email address.
  • Posters should be no larger than 30" x 40" and fonts should be legible at a distance of 3-4'.
