The West Coast Conference for Music Theory and Analysis (WCCMTA) is pleased to announce a call for presentations for our annual meeting, to be held on Friday and Saturday, May 17-18, 2024, at the University of California-Irvine. The conference will be held jointly with AMS-Pacific Southwest. Following the lead of other regional conferences during this cycle, the conference will be held in person only, though virtual attendance for non-presenters may be available for members of the society (a nominal fee).

The Programming Committee invites proposals from scholars and students for individual papers (20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for discussion). Proposals may address any topic related to music theory or analysis, and should be e-mailed to Amy Bauer at by February 1st, 2024, at 11:59 PST. Please include all identification information in the body of the e-mail, but all identifying information should be excluded from the proposal itself. Please note that submission implies intent to attend the conference if accepted.

Your proposal should consist of no more than 500 words, including any footnotes or endnotes. (One mathematical equation may be counted as one word). If desired, a maximum of four additional pages of supplementary materials may be appended (such as musical examples, diagrams, and selected bibliography); these pages will not be counted within the 500-word limit. The proposal must exclude the author's name and any other identifying information. The entire proposal with supplementary materials should be gathered into a single pdf; please include the title of the proposal in the document itself (above the main body of text) and a shortened version of the title in the pdf's filename.
