Confirmation of proposals received will be made electronically upon their receipt. Authors will be notified electronically of the Program Committee’s decision by January 1, 2021.

All accepted papers will be delivered virtually in a format suitable for online presentation, either as a pre-recorded video (20-minute time limit) or as a .pdf file (having an approximate word count of 2500 to 3000 words, with links to supplementary materials as appropriate). On Saturday and Sunday, March 20 and 21, 2021, MTSE will host a series of live webinars for the paper sessions that will feature a brief lightning talk by each presenter, followed by an extended question-and-answer period for discussion. Final versions of the videos or .pdfs will be due from all presenters by Monday, February 15, 2021. All presentations will then be posted by Monday, March 1 for advance viewing by those registered for the meeting.

SUBMISSION FORMAT: Proposals should be sent via e-mail as .pdf attachments. Put all cover letter information in the body of your e-mail, and attach the proposal (and any supplementary materials) as a separate .pdf file. No other electronic format will be accepted. Please be sure that your name does not appear in the .pdf file, even as metadata. Individuals may submit no more than one proposal. Send submissions to the MTSE Secretary (Adrian Childs) at mtseproposals@gmail.com with the subject line: “MTSE 2021 Proposal.” Include the following in your e-mail:

  1. A proposal of no more than 500 words, including any footnotes or endnotes. (Each mathematical equation may be counted as one word.) A maximum of four pages of supplementary materials (such as musical examples, diagrams, and selected bibliography) may be appended; these pages will not be counted within the 500-word limit, but captions should be brief, not appreciably augmenting either the word count or the proposal’s content. The proposal and supplementary materials should be included in a single .pdf attachment.
    The proposal must include the title of the paper but exclude the author’s name and any other identifying information. References to the author’s own work must occur in the third person. Proposals for panel discussions or other special session formats should include individual proposals for each segment of the session, along with a separate session proposal (no more than 500 words) that explains the overall content and organization.

(Special sessions or panel discussions should also include a list of all participants, along with their contact information.)
