The 7th International Conference on Music Perception & Cognition (7th
ICMPC) will be held at the University of New South Wales in Sydney,
Australia July 17-21, 2002.  7th ICMPC is the world conference on music
psychology and related disciplines.

The 2002 Sydney conference follows meetings of the music perception and
cognition research community in Kyoto, Japan (1989), Los Angeles, USA
(1992), Liège, Belgium (1994), Montréal, Canada (1996), Seoul, South Korea
(1998) and Keele, UK (2000).  7th ICMPC is sponsored jointly by the Society
for Music Perception and Cognition (USA), the Japanese Society for Music
Perception and Cognition, and the European Society for the Cognitive
Sciences of Music.  It will be hosted jointly by the Australian Music &
Psychology Society (AMPS), the Macarthur Auditory Research Centre Sydney
(MARCS) and the University of New South Wales.

The venue for the conference is the School of Music and Music Education at
the University of New South Wales (http://www.unsw.edu.au).  The conference
venue is just a short bus trip to the centre of Sydney with its beautiful
harbour, Opera House, and cultural life.  The beaches and cafes of Coogee
and Bondi are 15 minutes east of the University.

We invite you to take this opportunity to visit Australia - the smallest
continent and the largest island in the world!  Tours in and around Sydney
can be arranged during the conference and you may like to organise extra
time to travel beyond Sydney and take in the pleasures of Australia.  Head
south along the coast road and visit historical and cultural Melbourne; far
west to see the Red Centre and Uluru; due north to experience tropical
Queensland, our spectacular rainforests, and the Great Barrier Reef.
Although July is mid-winter for us, it is an ideal time to travel to the
centre or far north areas of the country.  Winter in Sydney averages a cool
but pleasant 16 deg. C (day) to 8 deg. C (night).

The conference is organised from the Macarthur Auditory Research Centre,
Sydney (MARCS) within the University of Western Sydney.  Further
information may be obtained from the conference chair Kate Stevens
