The Neuromusic community (researchers, clinicians, therapists, educators and musicians) is invited to submit proposals for the Symposia.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and selected on the basis of merit, interest to the research community and relevance to the overall focus of the conference.
The Scientific Committee may ask groups to combine proposed symposia if appropriate, in order to allow for a wider representation of the Neuromusic community.
Speakers’ benefits: the registration fee will be waived for speakers and chairs of the selected symposia/workshops, and accommodation will be provided at the Marina Congress Center. A contribution towards travel expenses will depend on the availability of grants and sponsorships.
Proposals should be sent by filling in the respective forms by 30 September, 2023.
Please see below for the specific requirements of Symposia.

Keeping in mind the conference theme of “Wiring, re-wiring, and well-being”, the proposals should be organized around a related subtopic with special emphasis on development and may include for example: “Music and Language Skills”, “Music and Motor Skills”, “Music and Memory”, “Auditory Processing”, “Auditory-Motor Interactions”, “Brain Plasticity”, “Music Intervention Programmes”, “Music Technology”, “Embodied Learning”, “Music and Aging”, “Musical Disorders and Musicians Disorders”, “Music Education”, “Cross-Cultural Studies” and more.
Any speaker can only be included in one symposium, either as proposer or speaker.
Senior post-doctoral fellows (but not PhD students) may be included as speakers in symposia.
Each Symposium may involve 3 to 4 speakers (including the chair) who have made significant research contributions to their field, allotting 15 minutes per each talk, and allowing 20 minutes discussion time per symposium.

Proposals should include:
a. Title and aim of the Symposium in relation to the conference theme (description: max. 250 words)
b. Abstracts of each proposed talk (max. 250 words each) briefly describing the background, method, results, and conclusions of the study.
c. Confirmation of each speaker’s availability (on-site presentations are strongly preferred – please specify for each speaker).
