The 15th International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC), combined with the 10th Triennial Conference of ESCOM, will be held at the University of Graz, Austria from 23 to 28 July 2018. Enquiries: Richard Parncutt
Abstract submission deadline – Passed
Early registration deadline – 30 April 2018
Since 1994, the ESCOM triennial conference has been combined every six years with the biennial ICMPC. In 2018, the two conferences will be combined for the fifth time. ICMPC and ESCOM have similar aims. Both support and promote the dissemination of empirical and theoretical research from a wide range of musically relevant, scientific, empirical based disciplines, including psychology, cognitive sciences, neurophysiology, linguistics, computer science, artificial intelligence, acoustics, psychophysics, sociology, and systematic musicology. We also welcome interdisciplinary presentations that involve humanities and/or practically oriented disciplines. Relevant humanities disciplines include music theory and analysis, musicology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, history, aesthetics, and philosophy; relevant practically oriented disciplines include music performance, composition, education, medicine, and therapy.
All presentations should feature new, unpublished research. All should have the potential to improve understanding of how music is created, perceived, experienced, shared, used, or represented.
