The third annual conference, Music and the Moving Image, encourages submissions from scholars and practitioners that explore the relationship between music and the entire universe of moving images (film, television, computer, video games, and interactive performance) through paper presentations, roundtables, and plenary sessions.

Accepted papers will be considered for inclusion in the new peer-reviewed online journal Music and the Moving Image: http://www.press.uillinois.edu/journals/mmisub.html
