Call for Papers: Perspectives on Rhythm and Timing

A three-day interdisciplinary workshop on rhythm and timing will be held at the University of Glasgow, UK, on July 19-21, 2012.

The PoRT workshop is dedicated to empirical research and theoretical modelling of timing and rhythm in speech and music, in perception and action. Each day of the event will have an orientation session, with two invited talks on contrasting themes followed by a discussion by one respondent. Research papers and posters will be presented in the afternoons. Additionally, a tutorial on coupled oscillator modelling of dynamical systems will be held on the third day. 

Invited speakers are as follows:
Linguistic-phonetic perspectives
Speakers: Francis Nolan, Alice Turk 
Discussant: Jelena Krivokapic

Neurobiological perspectives
Speakers: Edward Large, Sophie Scott
Discussant: Sarah Hawkins

Clinical perspectives
Speakers: Sonja Kotz, Anja Lowit
Discussant: Katie Overy

Tutorial on coupled oscillator modelling
Fred Cummins, Edward Large

We welcome submissions from researchers working on rhythm and timing in any discipline, including neurobiology, musicology, linguistic phonetics, computational modelling, psychology, clinical linguistics, and sociology.

Send your abstract of maximally one page by 18 December, 2011 to port.workshop@xxxxxxxxxx Please note that templates for the abstract submissions are provided at the workshop homepage http://www.gla.ac.uk/rhythmsinscotland/. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 1 March 2012. For further information, please contact the organisers at port.workshop@xxxxxxxxxx

Selected contributions to the workshop are intended to be published in a thematically coherent edited volume (envisaged publisher: Cambridge University Press). When submitting an abstract, please indicate whether you would be interested in your work being published in the volume. Full paper submissions are expected no later than September 1, 2012 and will subsequently be reviewed by two independent reviewers.

The workshop is supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. The organisers will aim for the conference fee not to exceed £100 with reduced rates available to students, unwaged and delegates from countries listed as “low economic resources countries” by the World Bank.
