The 35th annual conference of the German Society for Music Psychology will take place at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt in Germany from 6-8 September 2019. The key topic is "Cognitive Music Psychology", and the conference will investigate cognitive processes of listening to and performing music. In addition, we will explore new approaches in music psychology and cognitive neuroscience. The program will include keynote lectures by Lutz Jäncke (University of Zurich, Switzerland) and Victoria Williamson (University of Sheffield, England). They will focus on the memory of musical processes and various aspects of music processing in the human brain.
We are particularly asking for abstract submissions in relation to musical cognitive processes in various contexts, using different methodologies. As always, abstracts from other domains are also welcome.
Abstracts that deal with the central theme of the conference (Cognitive Music Psychology) and from other domains are welcome. Two scientific presentation forms will be equally considered: oral presentation (20 minutes) or poster. Abstracts must be submitted by 5 May 2019 using the web form of the German Society for Music Psychology. Further information is available there. Your abstract should include the research question, the applied methodology and the results of your paper. Following an anonymous review, you will be informed about the acceptance of your abstract into the conference program on 5 June 2019. In case of a large number of positive abstracts there will be the possibility of poster presentations in agreement with the authors. If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit an updated abstract (max. 500 words) in German or English language by 5 July 2019 for publishing in the conference reader (a template will be given). Abstracts submitted after 5 May 2019 or not fulfilling the formal requirements cannot be published.
