The 45th International Trumpet Guild Conference will be held in Anaheim, CA, June 1–5, 2021. The ITG Research Room Committee welcomes proposals for research presentations at the Conference. The ITG Research Room offers a blind, peer-reviewed, international research forum for performers, professors, and students to present experimental, action, qualitative, or quantitative research involving trumpet performance, repertoire, and/or pedagogy. Presentations are often developed from graduate or dissertation work, published material, or other new research. Presentations should represent an original contribution to the field, grounded in empirical evidence.

Successful applicants will be invited to present an academic poster at the conference during the Research Room poster session. Several submissions will also be selected for a 15 minute oral presentation during a Research Room paper session. All successful proposal abstracts will be published in the Conference’s electronic program. Presenters will benefit from sharing their work with fellow ITG Members to generate exposure and connections that may lead to future collaboration, nationally or internationally.

Presenters selected for oral presentation are encouraged to employ audio-visual aids (powerpoint), deliver handouts and summaries for the audience, and will receive a video recording of their presentation. Abstracts and presentation recordings may also be archived as a members-only resource on the ITG website.

Researchers should submit a 500-word abstract summarizing their thesis, sources, data collection, methods, and conclusions. Abstracts should be submitted electronically through the website and full details may be found on the submission form.

The deadline for Submission is December 1, 2020.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts and accepted proposal authors will be notified in January 2021. The ITG Research Room offers no financial incentives and presenters are responsible for all conference registration and travel expenses.

Questions should directed via email to the ITG Research Room chair, Fred Sienkiewicz:
