It is with great pleasure (and a hint of regret) that we can announce Dr Ian Sutherland’s appointment as Dean of the School of Music, Memorial University, in Canada. Ian is an influential thinker in our community and it is wonderful to see his versatility, creativity and management skill being recognised by such a prestigious institution.
Ian will officially relinquish his current post as Deputy Dean at the IEDC in Bled, Slovenia on July 4th 2016. Consequently, and with much regret, given his new responsibilities and the practicalities of a transatlantic move, Ian will be unable to attend AoMO2016 in Slovenia.
In light of this, Jenna will step-in and from June 1st 2016 be the lead organiser of AoMO2016. The conference will run, as planned, from the 1st-4th September 2016 at the IEDC in Bled, Slovenia. Ian and the IEDC team have an amazing schedule of events lined up for us and we would like to thank Ian, in particular, for his continued commitment to the planning and organisation of the AoMO 2016 conference.
Please continue to use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address for all conference correspondence. Ian and Jenna have set up a period of hand-over and hope that any disruption or inconvenience to the AoMO community will be kept to a minimum. We thank you for your patience during this period of transition and look forward to seeing you all at Lake Bled in September. For those who have not yet registered and made accommodation arrangements, we strongly urge you to do so at your earliest convenience. You can find further information and the online registration at the IEDC conference website at the following link:
So, congratulations to Ian – we wish him much luck and he has promised to consider the possibility of hosting an AoMO conference in Canada… we are going to hold you to that Ian!
Jenna, Steve T and Steve L
