Final Call for Papers

The Contribution of Music Science to the Study of Human Behavior.
A symposium within the International Conference on Psychology
Psychology After The Year 2000
June 2000, Haifa, Israel.

Dear List,

The conference Psychology After the Year 2000 has been designated as
Israels first International Conference on Psychology.  This is to be an
exciting time as year 2000 not only has much meaning from religious and
spiritual perspectives, but the millennium truly represents a turning
point in mankinds ability and technological prowess.  Global cooperation
is the key to our future, and international exchange is the format in
which we continue the momentum of our ancestors whether they were
explorers of continents, discovers of vaccines, or psychological
scientists who documented operant learning and behavioral conditioning.

In the true spirit of international cooperative ventures towards the
development of human science, I am pleased to announce the proposed music
symposium will be co-chaired by the eminent John A. Sloboda, Professor of
Psychology at Keele University in Staffordshire England.  John has been a
member of the department since 1974 and Director of the Unit for the Study
of Musical Skill and Development since 1991.  He is internationally known
for his work on the psychology of music.  He has authored or edited 5
books (including "The Musical Mind" Oxford University Press) and over 100
research articles.  He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society,
and has been President of both the Psychology and General Sections of the
British Association for the Advancement of Science, as well as President
of the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music, where he
serves on the editorial board of its journal Musicae Scientiae.  He also
serves on the editorial boards of Psychology of Music, Music Perception,
and Psychology Teaching Review.  John was the recipient of the 1998
British Psychological Societys Presidents Award for Distinguished
Contributions to Psychological Knowledge.

Given the fact that Professor Sloboda is the current organizer of the 6th
International Conference of Music Perception and Cognition to be held in
Keele in August 2000 (only a few weeks after the Israel Psychology
conference), we feel greatly indebted to him in that he take the time to
participate in our conference to begin with, and that he contribute
personal efforts towards our initiatives to secure a place for Music
Research among Psychological Science in Israel.
