NEMCOG Nov 17: call for participation and submissions

(Apologies for cross-postings)

The 7th semiannual meeting of the Northeast Music Cognition Group (NEMCOG) will take place on Saturday, November 17, 2012, at Boston University. The goal of this group is to facilitate interaction among researchers at institutions along the Northeast Corridor who are interested in the area of music cognition, to discuss research in the field in an informal setting, and to identify topics of joint interest and areas for potential collaboration.

A rough schedule for the workshop is as follows:
9:00 am - 12:15 pm   Introductions and presentations of research projects
12:15 pm - 2:00 pm   Lunch
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm   Keynote speaker: Aniruddh Patel (http://ase.tufts.edu/PSYCHOLOGY/peoplePatel.htm) 
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm   Discussions and Tutorials

To register for the event, please RSVP to the NEMCOG organizers at nemcog1@xxxxxxxxx by Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Breakfast, coffee breaks, and a simple catered lunch will be provided. 

We invite submissions of very short (8-minute) presentations of your work, for an interdisciplinary audience. If you would like to present, please send your name, institution, and title and brief abstract of your talk to nemcog1@xxxxxxxxx by Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Due to space constraints we may be unable to accommodate all submissions, but submissions from first-time NEMCOG speakers are highly encouraged. 

If you are unable to come to this meeting but would like to remain as an "interested non-attendee", you could be kept abreast of the group's activities through continued inclusion on our e-mail list.  If this message was forwarded to you by a colleague or through another e-mail list, and you would like to receive our regular announcements, please sign up for our mailing lists at http://nemcog.smusic.nyu.edu/subscribe.html 

Please circulate this invitation widely to anybody that you think might be interested and able to attend either this meeting or future meetings elsewhere in the Northeast Corridor.
