Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for discussion. Papers will be considered for future publication in the Alta Musica series. Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts of works in progress.

Oberwölz, the historic smallest City of Styria, Austria, will for the second time host an IGEB conference from Thursday July 21 (arrival) to Tuesday July 26, 2016 (departure). Those who attended the 2004 meeting will undoubtedly fondly remember visiting the Austrian Band Music Museum located in this city.
The winner of the IGEB Research Award (formerly the Thelen prize), awarded to the scholar having completed an outstanding doctoral dissertation in the field of wind music within the last five years, will be asked to present a paper on his/her research.
