Fwd: ESCOM 2015: Reminder of deadline for abstract submission - 29 December 2014

ESCOM 2015: Reminder of deadline for abstract submission – 29 December 2014

With apologies for cross-posting:

The Ninth Triennial European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) Conference will be held at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK, from 17 to 22 August 2015. The deadline for online abstract submission at www.escom2015.org is 29 December 2014.

ESCOM supports and promotes empirical and theoretical research from a wide range of disciplines, including aesthetics, anthropology, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, composition, education, health and wellbeing, linguistics, music theory, music therapy, neuroscience, performance studies, philosophy, psychoacoustics, psychology and psychophysics. We expect the research to be disseminated at the Ninth Triennial Conference to be new and unpublished, and to have the potential for contributing to a better understanding of how music is perceived, represented and generated.

Submissions are invited for spoken papers, poster presentations, symposia and workshops. The language of the conference is English and all spoken papers, posters, conference proceedings and publications will be in English. All submissions should be made online. They will be reviewed anonymously by two or more members of the Review Committee. Full-text conference Proceedings will be published online, for downloading, and on a USB flash drive.

Due to the likely interest in this conference the number of opportunities available to each presenter, particularly for spoken papers, is limited. We suggest that those wishing to make more than one submission consider allowing co-authors to present, and/or submitting proposals in different formats such as poster presentations, symposia or workshops, as alternatives to spoken papers. Full details of the types of presentations available can be found at http://www.escom2015.org/call_for_papers.html.

Key dates:
•       Deadline for submissions: 29 December 2014 (no extensions are expected)
•       Decisions communicated to presenters: from 23 February 2015
•       Registration deadline for presenters (essential to be included in the programme): 1 May 2015
•       Deadline for receipt of papers for the Proceedings: 15 May 2015

For more information please see the conference website www.escom2015.org or contact the Organising Committee at escom2015@gmail.com. We look forward to receiving your submissions and encourage you to keep abreast of developments relating to the conference on the website and Twitter @ESCOM2015. Please also share amongst colleagues, students, and other interested parties.
