Following the successful 2022 Music Science Symposium at Western Sydney University, the University of Newcastle is hosting a second symposium this year. It is a one-day symposium on Monday 13 November 9am-5pm at the University of Newcastle Conservatorium of Music. The symposium will be fully catered thanks to generous support from the Musicological Society of Australia. 

The symposium is aimed at HDR students (Honours also welcome) and ECRs, with the intention of encouraging and supporting emerging researchers. The event is free and we hope academics and students will come and enjoy some Newcastle hospitality! Music and Science is a broad term and might include music and cognition, health, wellbeing, sociology, performance science, composition and much more (see Journal of Music & Science for an extensive list).

Please send abstracts of approx. 250 words to by 31 October. Please include title, your name and institution, and a short bio (maximum 100 words).
