The Thompson Symposium is intended to provide a forum for master's degree students to share their completed and in-progress research with graduate students and faculty. Dr. Janet Barrett, of Northwestern University, will

The symposium features a keynote speaker with follow-up small- and
large-group discussion; a poster session for research in-progress as well as research by faculty, doctoral students, undergraduate students, and current teachers; small group discussion with faculty on in-progress research; and
small-group question and answer sessions for in-depth discussion on
completed master's project. A continental breakfast and lunch are included
with the registration.

Call for Papers (master's students) and Posters (all researchers):
Guidelines for paper submissions:
Students who are currently enrolled in a master's degree program or have
completed a master's degree within the last three years are invited to
submit projects from their master's work that reflect systematic inquiry
about a topic in music education.  Submissions may be in the form of a
completed paper, or a summary/abstract of a research project (1-3 pages), and should emphasize the transfer of the conclusions to the practice of music education, especially to the classroom or rehearsal setting. Projects
in-progress at the time of submission will be considered with an
accompanying letter from the project advisor indicating completion timeline.
Research representing quantitative, qualitative, historical, or
philosophical methodologies is welcomed, as are literature reviews and
meta-analyses. Projects not selected will automatically be considered for
the poster session.

An electronic submission should be an email with the subject heading
"Thompson Symposium Submission" and content indicating 1) the author's name,
institutional affiliation, address, phone number, and preferred email
address, 2) Title of the project and indicate if the project is in- progress
or complete, and 3) The name and email address of the advisor of the
project. The document should be sent in Microsoft Word as an attachment.
The author's name should not appear on the project submission itself

Hard-copy submission
Three copies of the paper or project summary should be submitted. One cover sheet with the author's name, institutional affiliation, address, phone number, e-mail, title of project, and advisor's name and email must also be
included.  The author's name should not appear on the project itself.

Guidelines for poster submissions:
Any persons (undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degree students, faculty, teachers) who have completed research or research in-progress related to music education are invited to submit an abstract to be reviewed for the poster session. Procedures for submission, electronic or hard copy, should be followed as outlined above, with the exception that the abstract should
be approximately one page in length.
