Final Call for Papers The Contribution of Music Science to the Study of Human Behavior. A symposium within the International Conference on Psychology Psychology After The Year 2000 June 2000, Haifa, Israel. Dear List, The conference Psychology After the Year 2000 has been designated as Israels first International Conference on Psychology. This is to be an exciting time as year 2000 not only has much meaning from religious and spiritual perspectives, but the millennium truly represents a turning point in mankinds ability and technological prowess. Global cooperation is the key to our future, and international exchange is the format in which we continue the momentum of our ancestors whether they were explorers of continents, discovers of vaccines, or psychological scientists who documented operant learning and behavioral conditioning. In the true spirit of international cooperative ventures towards the development of human science, I am pleased to announce the proposed music symposium will be co-chaired by the eminent John A. Sloboda, Professor of Psychology at Keele University in Staffordshire England. John has been a member of the department since 1974 and Director of the Unit for the Study of Musical Skill and Development since 1991. He is internationally known for his work on the psychology of music. He has authored or edited 5 books (including "The Musical Mind" Oxford University Press) and over 100 research articles. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, and has been President of both the Psychology and General Sections of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, as well as President of the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music, where he serves on the editorial board of its journal Musicae Scientiae. He also serves on the editorial boards of Psychology of Music, Music Perception, and Psychology Teaching Review. John was the recipient of the 1998 British Psychological Societys Presidents Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychological Knowledge. Given the fact that Professor Sloboda is the current organizer of the 6th International Conference of Music Perception and Cognition to be held in Keele in August 2000 (only a few weeks after the Israel Psychology conference), we feel greatly indebted to him in that he take the time to participate in our conference to begin with, and that he contribute personal efforts towards our initiatives to secure a place for Music Research among Psychological Science in Israel.

Papers are currently being solicited for oral presentation (20 minutes) as a collective symposium titled The Contribution of Music Science to the Study of Human Behavior.
