Canadian Acoust. Assoc. - music sessions
To the auditory list members (particularly researchers in music
perception/cognition and music acoustics):
The 2007 meeting of the Canadian Acoustical Association will take
place October 9 - 12, in Montreal at the new (downtown) Engineering
and Visual Arts Complex of Concordia University.
See the conference information at:
Abstracts are due June 8, and an optional 2-page proceedings paper
for accepted papers is due July 16.
I have been asked to organize one or more sessions in musical
acoustics and music perception/cognition. Especially welcome are
papers representing any of the following topics: tuning systems,
analysis of singing, brain plasticity and music acquisition, music
development, music and aging, music and neuropsychology/brain
deficits, music-visual interactions, music performance, music
expertise, spatial aspects of music, new instrumentation for research
in music acoustics/perception/cognition, improvisation, teaching in
music acoustics/perception, portable audio players, music information
retrieval, and other emerging research areas.
Please contact me (acohen@xxxxxxx) by May 1st (preferably earlier) if
you would be interested in participating in a special music session.
Student papers are welcome. There is meeting-wide competition for the
3 best student presentations.
Last year's conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia provided two lively
and stimulating sessions on music, and there is every reason to
expect a repeat performance in Montreal.
Hope to see some of you there!
