SMT Facemask

It's tough enough being a music theorist! With this mask you can stay safe while resolving your dominant seventh chords and performing those Leitonwechsel transformations.

SMT. Socially distanced since 1978.

Interest Group Meeting Information

Much as at an in-person SMT, the format of Interest Group meetings is left up to the leadership and members of individual IGs. Nonetheless, we do encourage IG leadership to follow these guidelines.  

Poster Session Information

Poster sessions begin as Zoom webinars, but after introductory remarks from the Chair and lightning talks from the Presenters, each poster presentation will have their own individual Zoom meeting room where they can interact with attendees.

Information for Paper Sessions

After the session intro, the Chair will introduce each presentation in turn. Each presentation will have a maximum of 5 minutes for presentation summary. These comments should be prepared ahead of time to ensure appropriate length. The 5-minute limit will be enforced by the Chair.

Presenter Guidance for SMT 2020

As part of the virtual SMT joint meeting with AMS, conference attendees will have an extended period of time to view papers, posters, and other presentations before, during, and after the conference begins on November 7. To ensure that the Q&A sessions during the conference are as fruitful as possible, presentation materials will need to be submitted in advance.
