Meeting Title: 
Mid-Biennial Perception and Cognition SRIG Conference 
Loyola University New Orleans
Date(s) of Meeting:
March 9 – 11, 2017
The Perception and Cognition SRIG exposes its members to research and issues in music perception and cognition that furthers our knowledge of how music is experienced and understood. The intent is that this information advances musical pedagogy while revealing various complexities of the musical experience.
Types of Submissions Sought:
Presentation format will be for those interested in presenting original research that has not yet been published or presented in a similar forum. Papers will be allotted 30 min, including 20 min for the presentation, 5 min for questions and answers, and 5 min for the preparation for the next presentation. Submissions for panels of three to five presenters (50 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion) will be accepted.
Topics Sought:
Consider the prominence of music research in the current education climate in which our art is framed as having not only its inherent musical benefits and value but also a number of extra-musical cognitive benefits. While this presence in the greater education community may have effects on our advocacy, this SRIG seeks to ponder research that examines how music is perceived, understood, and experienced by people of all ages and contemplate how findings in perception and cognition may inform our pedagogy while revealing various complexities of the musical experience. Proposals related to a broad range of music education research will be considered.
Submission Information:
