CFP: Midwestern Music Cognition Symposium at Ohio State University

Midwestern Music Cognition Symposium

May 24-26th, 2013
School of Music and the Center for Cognitive Science
Ohio State University

The School of Music and the Center for Cognitive Science at Ohio State University will be hosting a music cognition symposium, aimed at providing an outlet for both established and young scholars in the field to present their work. The symposium will consist of keynote presentations from Professors Robert Gjerdingen (Northwestern University), Glenn Schellenberg (University of Toronto), and Elizabeth West Marvin (Eastman School of Music).  

Papers are invited that report empirical and theoretical research pertaining to music perception and cognition,  in either a finished form, or as a work in progress.

Possible research topics include, but are not limited to:


  • linguistics and music
  • corpus studies
  • computational music theory
  • music and emotion
  • cognitive science
  • psychoacoustics
  • music information retrieval

Submissions to present your work should include a title, an abstract of no more than 250 words in length, and a preference for an oral or poster presentation. The abstracts should describe the project, its methodology, and (if available) its results. We welcome submissions of ongoing projects, which will be included in a special session on works-in-progress. Submissions should be made electronically at osuMusicCog2013@xxxxxxxxx.

In order to facilitate a greater number of participants, there will be no registration fee. Reservations, however, are required. Registration and queries should be emailed to osuMusicCog2013@xxxxxxxxx  by May 15th.

Organizing Committee:
Symposium Chair: Daniel Shanahan,  Ohio State University (shanahan.37@xxxxxxx)
Program Committee Chair: Johanna Devaney, Ohio State University (devaney.12@xxxxxxx)

Prior to the Symposium, an intensive four-day workshop will be conducted entitled Methods in Empirical Music Research. The workshop will be led by Prof. David Huron and will provide a comprehensive introduction to concepts and methods in empirical research. The workshop will offer practical experience in designing experiments and questionnaires, conducting interviews, running subjects, and analyzing data. Participants can enroll for graduate course credit.  Further details are pending., and will be posted to the conference website when available.
