After the success of the first edition of the I Meeting for Students in Musicology and Young Musicologists, celebrated in May 2008 at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, ESMuC (Barcelona), the Jove Associació de Musicologia (JAM) [Young Assotiation of Musicology] and the students in musicology of the ESMuC appoint to the II Meeting for Students in Musicology and Young Musicologists for the next month of May 2009.

The general aim of this Meeting is to create a relation area among all the students in musicology from different places and countries and, therefore, to generate a communication net among them. As well as to offer the possibility to those musicologists still in formation or recently licensed to contact with the classical standard forms of a Meeting (papers, conferences, round tables). Besides, this year we add the consideration about the figure of the musicologist in both fields, musical and social.

The Meeting will focus in the discussion about the role a musicologist should assume in social and musical fields, as well as to define the different outlines a musicologist should adopt in relation to the environment.

The size of the poster should be similar to a DIN A1 (594x891mm), in any case should overtake 750x1500mm. The paper should weight between 70 and 130 grams, and should not be assembled in a frame or in any fixed supporter, because it will be displayed directly hanged on the panels provided by the organizing committee, but it can be plastified as will. The orientation of the poster must be vertical. On the poster must appear the name of the author and a contact e-mail address.

The posters should be consigned during the reception of participants, the 7th of May before 15.45h.

If the poster is not removed before 21.00h, the Organizing Committe will consider that the author is not interested to keep it and will remove the poster and destroy it.

The given abstract will be a part of the dossier, which will be given to all the participants in the Meeting. The Organizing Committee also offers the possibility to the authors to send complementary information to the poster which will be provided to the audience. We suggest to set the poster in a reduced version, or the translations into the languages used during the Meeting (catalan, english and spanish) of the text contained in the poster. The Organizing Committee will provide for copies of this documentation (of a maximum of a double-faced folio per language). According to this reason, the Organizing Committee should receive the material by mail before the 15th of April.
