art meets science

Reminder: as previously announced on these lists (sorry for any cross
postings), the deadline for submission of proposals to the ART MEETS
SCIENCE session at Toronto 2000, in which scientists and artists
collaborate to generate original insights in music theory and analysis,
is a few days away: 30 April 1999.

(The reason for the early deadline is another deadline: on the basis of
prposals we receive, the session organisers will compile a proposal for
the session as a whole, and submit it to SMT by the end of May.)

The aim of the session is to generate original insights in music theory

paper in the session will have dual authorship, whereby one author is a
music theorist (or an academic whose primary qualifications and
publications are in the domain of the arts) and the other a music
psychologist (or an academic whose primary qualifications and
publications are in the domain of the natural sciences). Authors need
not be members of SMT or SMPC.

Proposals for contributions should include the following:
- title;
- authors' names, affiliations, contact details (address, email, tel,
- a 500-word abstract;
- and a 250-word resume of each author including relevant research
interests & findings.

Proposals should be emailed simultaneously to Richard Parncutt
<richard.parncutt@kfunigraz.ac.at> and Steve Larson
