About the Society for Music Perception and Cognition
Since the publication in of the book The Musical Mind, music psychology has developed as a Chapter 19 Music: Where Cognition and Emotion Meet. The Society for Music Perception and Cognition (SMPC), is a scholarly organization Meet the Society Officers and Board . interaction, and emotion and cognition, using tools from psychophysics and cognitive neuroscience as appropriate. approached it with the tools of cognitive science and linguistics, the emotional aspect of music has been virtually . Music: Where cognition and emotion meet.
Musicians and scientists at any stage in their careers are encouraged to apply. Fifteen musician and fifteen scientist applicants will be selected based on their demonstrated interest and accomplishment in the field. Applications are due November 1st, and applicants will be notified by January 15th, SysMus promotes systematic musicology as an interdisciplinary field by giving students who study music from computational, psychological, sociological and other non-traditional perspectives the opportunity to interact with each other and with successful professionals in the field.
Exploring the Musical Mind: Cognition, emotion, ability, function
The SysMus conference series offers students the chance to practice conference organizing, practice presenting their research, visit internationally recognized institutions in systematic musicology, and network in an interdisciplinary environment. Masters- and doctoral-level researchers are invited to submit abstracts proposing oral or poster presentation as part of the conference. More information is available here: Use and relevance of haptic feedback in musical practice - July 4,London UK The workshop will present the latest researches and related open issues on the role of the haptic modality in the musician-instrument interplay, and on the implementation of haptic feedback in digital musical instruments.
Together with audition, the sense of touch is key when playing traditional musical instruments, supporting performance control e. Conversely, while current digital musical interfaces usually offer touch-mediated interaction, they currently do not provide a natural physical experience to the performer.
We argue that future digital musical instruments DMIs providing advanced haptic feedback may offer enhanced user experience and performance. Also, haptic feedback would facilitate the access to DMIs for persons with somatosensory loss, the visually and even the hearing impaired, and it may provide an effective means for musical tuition and guidance.
However, the details of how the auditory and haptic modalities are actually exploited in instrumental performance are still largely unknown, and require further research.
For this reason, and due to still unanswered technological requirements, the design of haptic DMIs is not yet established. To investigate such issues, a strongly interdisciplinary scientific approach is required, bringing together fields such as haptic technology, psychophysics of audition and touch, physics of musical instruments, applied psychology and human-computer interaction. The workshop is especially targeted to haptic engineers, interaction designers, HCI researchers, musicians and musical instrument designers who are interested in the use of haptic and auditory feedback in musical devices and human-computer interfaces in the broader sense.
Interested attendees must register through the Eurohaptics conference portal. Abstract submissions are invited for oral presentations, poster presentations, and symposia. Abstract submission is now open! All abstracts are due February 1, Other important dates tentative: March - Early registration deadline: To receive the link to submit an abstract or register for the workshop, please complete the Workshop SignUp Form if you have not done so already. The workshop will bring together treatment researchers from musical and non-musical fields to enhance the methodology, design, and funding applications for incorporating music in treatment studies for language, social, cognitive, emotional, and motor outcomes.
The workshop will include presentations by featured NIH-funded treatment researchers and members of NIH review committees. The workshop will provide an opportunity for fostering connections and collaborations between treatment researchers.

Interested researchers are invited to submit abstracts of no more than words for a limited number of spoken presentations and feedback opportunities. Presentations should focus on one of the following themes: SMPC bylaws The activities of the Society The Society hosts biennial conferences, providing opportunities for members of the research community to present new research in the area of music cognition.
Past meetings have been held in a variety of cities, hosted by different institutions. In addition, SMPC cooperates with other organizations in music cognition to host international conferences.

Music Perception and Cognition Events
He has published widely in music theory, music perception and cognition, and musical aesthetics. Her research focuses on the dynamic responses to musical structure that take place in listeners without formal training. Her book On Repeat: She has also chaired the Development Committee for SMT, launching a major fundraising initiative for the society. She currently serves on the Editorial Board of Music Perception. She has won a university-wide award for mentoring undergraduate research.
Her main interests are in musical rhythm and its relationship to the motor system, mechanisms of human timing, and brain plasticity, using fMRI and neurological patient testing. Treasurer Erin Hannon Erin E. Erin received a B. Her research combines developmental and cross-cultural approaches to examine music perception and learning among infants, children, and adults, with a focus on rhythm and movement and examining acquisition of music and language in parallel.
Her research is currently focused on exploring the role of rhythm skills in language development and disorders, for which she has been awarded an NIH NIDCD grant.
Gordon is passionate about the mission of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition, and she is enthusiastic about fostering interdisciplinary research on the science of music and moving the field of music cognition into new and exciting directions.
