>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.
