"New York, it's a helluva town..." The local organising committee is "spreading the news" that the joint IAML/IMS Congress in New York, 21-26 June 2015 is the hottest ticket in town! We have worked hard to provide a week of stimulating presentations, in-depth discussions, fascinating tours, and plenty of other events which will take place in the newly-renovated spaces of The Juilliard School, our main conference site. One can hardly contemplate music without thinking of New York as a vital center for the study and performance of musics of all ages and continents. New York's approach for access to music information is on the cutting-edge, with world-renowned collections, archives, and specialists in all types of libraries. That New York is also home to the international office of RILM provides a special opportunity to interact on music research in the digital age, the conference theme.
The Music Library Association (MLA) as the United States Branch of IAML and conference host for this joint meeting is pleased to welcome you to our shores, and wish you a week filled with vital information, social events that will linger in your memories, and the opportunity to network with colleagues and friends.
