Florida Music Education Association Professional Development Conference
Tampa Convention Center
Tampa, Florida U.S.A.
January 9-12, 2017

Submission deadline is September 17, 2018.

The FMEA Research Committee invites researchers from collegiate faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to submit proposals for the FMEA conference research poster session that will occur on Friday January 11, 2019. We welcome submissions of unpublished research in music education, reviews of literature, and works in progress from FMEA members and out-of-state researchers.

Topics related to music teaching and learning will be considered. Submissions for this conference may also have been accepted for publication, but should not have appeared in print prior to the conference. Reports presented at other conferences are eligible if the audience was substantially different. A statement specifying the particulars of any prior presentations must be included with the submission.

The two graduate student submissions that receive the highest evaluations will be invited to give 30-minute presentations during a separate conference session on Friday, January 11, 2019. Graduate students who wish to be considered for a presentation should indicate their interest and should expect to submit lengthier abstract (500-800 words).

Submissions should include:

(1) An abstract of 300-500 words. Include the title, summarize the research purpose, methodology, findings, and implications.

(2) Identifying information (author name, status, institutional affiliation, and an email address).
The FMEA Research Committee will blind-review all submissions. Authors will be notified no later than September 21, 2018.
