We invite you to attend a one-day virtual conference hosted by the Australian Music & Psychology Society on 9 October 2020. The event will run 10:00-16:30, AEST.

The vision of this meeting is to present a cutting-edge forum for those wishing to share ideas and meet others with common interests in music and psychology research. Formal presentations will be 10-minutes in duration, prepared in video format, uploaded and made available to delegates 7 days before the event through our LMS platform. During the conference, live breakout rooms will be used for longer discussion sessions between presenters and delegates to expand on the video material viewed in advance.

This event is being organized by a conference committee comprising AMPS Committee members.
