Daer List,

I am interested in organizing a Symposia on the role and contribution of
the Music Sciences to the study of human behavior.  I would define the
Music Sciences as including any research endeavor involving music as a
stimuli or targeted at music-related behaviors.  The Symposia is under the
auspices of the International Conference On Psychology - After the Year
2000.  Below is a brief call for papers.  If any of the members on this
list are interested in participating in such as Symposium, please contact
Dr. Warren Brodsky (wbrodsky@bgumail.bgu.ac.il) as soon as possible.


The Departments of Psychology in the Universities in Israel, in
conjunction with the Israeli Psychological Association, will be hosting an
International Conference on Psychology at the University of Haifa, from
June 12-14, 2000.  The Conference theme is "Psychology After The Year
2000." The Conference will  be open to all interested scientists,
professionals, and students.

The Conference will open with a major address examining the role of the
sciences of human behavior in the overall context of the human condition.
There will be a plenary address each day, three in all, followed by
parallel sessions. The topics for the three plenary addresses are:
(a) The changing concept of intelligence; (b) Brain and behavior as a
metaphor and a science; and (c) The person: Changing perspectives

Submission of Abstracts is invited for several kinds of presentations: (1)
Brief communications (20 minutes), presenting findings of discrete
studies. (2) Extended presentations (50 minutes), summarizing research
(own and other) in a given area, and pointing to new directions. (3)
Symposia, featuring three or more participants in a given area of
research. (4) Poster sessions.

While there are no pre-designed sessions, the Program Committee will
endeavor to group presentations into clusters to create de facto sessions.

Language of the Conference: Hebrew and English.

Deadline for submission of Abstracts: November 15, 1999.
