Call for Proposals - 2022

Thank you for your interest in the 5th VOICES meeting, to be held online on September 25th, 2022! If you are interested in contributing an online presentation, please complete the form below. To ensure full consideration, please submit the form no later than July 22nd, 2022. We welcome all submissions relating to the use of music to teach any secondary or college-level STEM subject. Proposals that apply to STEM as a whole are especially encouraged. Individuals may submit more than one proposal, though time constraints will limit the number of presentations we can accept. Please note that all presentations will be archived on a publicly accessible website, as occurred for the 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021 conferences. As you see by browsing those 100+ presentations, topics have included research/theory, song parodies, music videos, informal learning and outreach, STEM songwriting, and student songwriting. Presentations generally apply to all STEM disciplines (and beyond) and participants have come from 5 continents, spanning all major STEM fields, as well as Education, English, Media & Information, and Performing Arts.

Questions may be directed to

Preferred presentation format (choose one):

  • Video Poster: brief (maximum 5 minutes) pre-recorded presentation, to be posted on the website and displayed throughout VOICES and beyond. Conference attendees will be encouraged to view posters throughout the two weeks prior to Sept. 25, and to leave comments or questions for the poster presenter; presenters are encouraged to check their poster frequently and respond to questions/comments. (For examples, see the program of a previous conference.)
  • Live Presentation: webinar on a particular topic (15 minutes + discussion time). Format: live audio + slides OR live video (we can help with this). Some presentations may be organized into panels addressing a common topic; individual presentations may be solo or team efforts as desired by the presenters.
After August 19, only video posters are still being considered.
