NAMM Meeting on January 23

Happy New Year everyone! We are happy to announce that thanks to the work of Joe Berkovitz and NAMM staff, we will be having a W3C Music Notation Community Group meeting during the upcoming NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.

The meeting will be on Saturday, January 23 from 10:30 am to 12:00 noon in the Hilton Oceanside room. The agenda will include:

  • Community Group status update
  • Use case document discussion
  • MusicXML 3.1 updates
  • SMuFL 1.2 updates

Please let us know if you have suggestions for additional agenda topics.

Since the meeting is in the Hilton rather than the Anaheim Convention Center, you do not need to be registered for the NAMM show in order to attend the meeting.

We apologize for the short notice about the meeting. This was our first time working with NAMM staff regarding a W3C music notation event, so we have been learning as we go.

The room holds 30 people. We expect that will be sufficient given the short notice and the attendance at the NAMM MusicXML meeting in 2012. For planning purposes it would be helpful if you could let us know if you plan to attend. Feel free to send an email to Michael or to respond on the blog or mailing list.

For those who can’t make it to NAMM, we do hope to have a meeting at Musikmesse in Frankfurt this April, as we have done with the MusicXML community the past three years. We hope to provide more advance notice for that event.

We look forward to seeing many of you at this meeting!

  • I will try to come but I will be late, noon-1-ish. Also, this has been a fascinating group to be a part of; reading all the ideas flying back and forth on emails, but I am way out of my area here. I am a user, musician, composer, not a programmer. Sill I will try to come by and say hi.


  • Thanks for letting us know, Kevin. We decided that we only needed 90 minutes for the meeting, so I have updated the blog post to indicate we plan to be done by noon. We still have the room until 1:30 in case we need more time. Hopefully you can make it there a little earlier and we can see you there!
