Call for Papers: 12th Young Scholars’ Workshop of the International Music Business Research Days 2022

The Young Scholars’ Workshop, as part of the 13th International Music Business Research Days (Vienna, Austria), invites once again young researchers to submit paper abstracts of all disciplines exploring questions that help understand economic and managerial problems as well as processes of the music business sector and in the field of music management. There are many questions that call for investigation and need to be discussed in music business research, for example:

  • What drives innovation in the music business sector?
  • How can we scientifically understand and differentiate music business models?
  • What do we know about critical success factors? Have success factors changed over time – and has music business (entrepreneurship) changed in general?
  • What rationalities affect this very “personal” industry?
  • What does it mean to be self-managed in the music business?
  • What can we learn about the customer’s willingness to pay for music recordings or related goods?
  • Who will control the future music market, e.g., startups or Apple?
  • How can we understand the role of brands and the music industry?
  • And how can music business research support efforts for innovative business models?
  • What issues of gender, class or “race” exist in a music business context? How are they dealt with?

 
These research questions are not exhaustive, papers may also address other aspects.
 
The workshop organizers Prof. Dr. Peter Tschmuck (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna) and Prof. Dr. Carsten Winter (Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media) strongly encourage submissions from students at all levels of MA & PhD. Students are supposed to work on their MA or PhD thesis and discuss it with senior researchers of music business research.
 
Abstracts (of about 1,000 characters) are due by May 31, 2022, and full papers (15-30 pages) are due by September 15, 2022. Only abstracts and papers submitted on time will be considered.
 
A maximum of 6-8 papers will be selected for presentation to guarantee a workshop atmosphere. The sessions will combine paper presentations and discussions including interactive elements. Information on the acceptance of the paper proposal will be sent until June 30, 2022, at the latest.
 
Please email your submission to youngscholars@imbra.eu

The online conference continued on September 23 with the Invited Conference Day focusing on the main conference topic “Emerging Music Markets”. Bernie Cho, President of the Seoul-based artist & label services agency DFSB Kollective, gave a keynote on the “Hip Hype Reality of the Korean Music Market” and highlighted the hugh economic impact of K-Pop for the Korean but also international music markets. Philipp Grefer, who is the founder of the Beijing-based Future-Think-Tank WISE explained it the next keynote how the Chinese music market developed from more or less nothing into the seventh largest recorded music market worldwide. In the following talk, Achille Forler, who is the managing director of the Indian-based sound design agency Music Curator and member of the advisory board of the Indian Performing Right Society, highlighted the specifities of the Indian music market that is still dominated by the big Bollywood film companies.

The virtual afternoon conference session was devoted to Eastern European music markets.
