isaScience is mdw's international conference for interdisciplinary research on music and performing arts. We invite scholars, artists, and activists from various disciplinary and academic levels to join the discourse on isa's annual thematic focus. Since 2013 isaScience is part of isa, the international summer academy of mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. From 2013 to 2017 Ursula Hemetek and Cornelia Szabó-Knotik organised the conference programme.

isaScience 2020 postponed to 2021
It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform that our annual isaScience conference, scheduled for 12-16 August in Reichenau an der Rax, will not take place in its originally planned form.
Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic and especially due to the persisting international travel restrictions, the isaScience conference board has taken the difficult decision to postpone the isaScience 2020 conference on "Heroes, Canons, Cults. Critical Inquiries" from August 2020 to 11-15 August 2021. We will get back to you to announce details on isaScience 2021 in due time.
We have also decided to keep the Call for Papers open until 28 February 2021.
