Northeast Music Cognition Group CFP: April 27


The next semiannual meeting of the Northeast Music Cognition Group (NEMCOG) will take place at New York University on Saturday, April 27. The goal of the 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, and to identify topics of joint interest and areas for potential collaboration.

If you would like to attend the upcoming NEMCOG meeting, please RSVP to nemcog1@xxxxxxxxx by Friday, April 5.

The general schedule for the workshop is as follows:

9:00 am Registration and breakfast
9:30 am 8-minute talks
12:30 pm Lunch break
2:30 pm Keynote talk by Philip Johnson-Laird
5:30 pm Closing Remarks and Discussion

New York University
35 W. 4th St., 6th Floor
New York, NY

You are optionally invited to give a very short (8 minute) and semi-formal presentation of your work, aimed at a fairly general audience that will include people with established research programs in areas outside your specialty, as well as students and other newcomers to the field. The goal is simply to give a broadly contextualized sense of the questions you're asking, not a detailed picture of your answers. At our previous meetings, we have found the 8-minute format to be expedient, exhilarating, and successful for both presenters and audience members!

We hope to make slots for eight-minute talks available to all, but in an effort to make room for speakers who have not spoken at NEMCOG previously, we may have to turn down some requests for slots at this meeting. If you would like to do a presentation, please indicate so in your RSVP with a tentative title and, optionally, a short abstract or bio. This information will be shared with our attendees and posted on our web site.

If you cannot attend this spring's meeting, you can stay informed 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.
