PME04 - Call for Papers

Apologies for multiple postings and please, circulate to all interested

PME04 is a Conference on the relationships between Psychology and Music
Education. The aim of the Symposium is to provide a forum for discussion
of the results of research in Psychology and define implications for Music
Education. Normally there are no evident connections between the two
disciplines. We would promote interpretations, collaborations, and
interdisciplinary combinations that are new, unusual, creative.
The symposium will be a forum for constructive interaction between and
among Psychology of Music and Music Education researchers.

The conference is hosted by the Department of Educational Sciences,
the Department of Developmental Psychology, the Department of General
Psychology, the Faculty of Psychology, University of Padova and the SSIS
of Veneto (University of Venice). The official languages of the conference
will be English and Italian. The proceedings PME04 will be available at
the desk of the conference. A selection of the papers presented will be
edited by SSIS of Veneto (University of Venice).

People interested in an active participation are invited to submit an
abstract by 30 June 2004. All abstract submissions will be anonymously
peer-reviewed by international experts. Abstracts selected will normally
reflect an experimental, observational, descriptive, or ethnographic research
design and will focus upon a clearly articulated research question or
hypothesis and theoretical background, linked to a clear and appropriate

The deadline for abstract submission is 30 June 2004. The authors of all
accepted works are invited to submit a long version of the abstract by 31
October 2004.
