3 - 4 DECEMBER 2009
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 2nd International Conference on Music Communication Science (ICoMCS2) will bring together people interested in an interdisciplinary understanding or application of music cognition, perception, action, performance, and communication. ICoMCS2 follows the successful inaugural conference held in 2007 (http://marcs.uws.edu.au/links/ICoMusic/program.html) and is organised jointly by the Australian Music & Psychology Society (AMPS http://marcs.uws.edu.au/links/amps/index.htm) and HCSNet the ARC Network in Human Communication Science (http://www.hcsnet.edu.au).
ICoMCS2 will be held in Sydney during the week-long HCSNet SummerFest (http://www.hcsnet.edu.au/summerfest09) with HCSNet summer school courses linked to ICoMCS2.
ICoMCS2 will attract people from all walks of research and performance life, including musicologists, psychologists, educators, linguists, ethnomusicologists, composers, engineers, computer scientists, speech scientists, physicists, philosophers and performance artists.
Papers reporting research concerning music communication in its various forms are invited. Broad topic areas include music performance, music perception, music cognition, intermodal processes, music information retrieval, audio-visual search and retrieval, music and language, evolutionary accounts of music and speech, generative systems, amusia, dystonia, music education, ethnomusicology, music therapy, sonification, spatialization and 3D audio, musical interfaces, digital media, interactive arts, psychophysics, and psychoacoustics.
We also encourage submissions for performance and installation sessions. Ensembles and individuals with performance programs of less than 10 minutes are invited to submit an abstract or full paper of their work.
Submissions will be accepted in two streams. You may submit either a full (four page) paper or an abstract of a paper for presentation. Full papers will be reviewed by the international scientific program committee and clearly identified separately in the conference proceedings. Papers and symposium proposals with an interdisciplinary theme are welcome; papers from
student researchers are strongly encouraged.
