Announcing the AMPS 2022 Conference! 


We invite you to attend a one-day virtual conference hosted by the Australian Music & Psychology Society on 28 September 2022. 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 5-minutes in duration, presented virtually, followed by 10-minute discussion sessions between presenters and delegates. This event is being organized by a conference committee comprising AMPS Committee members. 

Works at all stages are welcomed, including: 

  • Works in progress (e.g., PhD students, post-confirmation, reporting on work underway)
  • Completed projects (e.g., sharing findings)
  • Discussion/ Position papers 


Call for Papers 

We invite abstract submissions of 200 words or less on the following themes, although all research topics are welcomed:

  • Social and applied approaches to music (including well-being)
  • Music perception and cognition
  • Music performance
  • Musical development 

To highlight outstanding research, two conference awards will be presented to (1) an undergraduate or postgraduate student and; (2) an Early Career Researcher (within 5 years of PhD conferral date or equivalent research higher degree). At the time of submission, you will be able to self-nominate for these awards. The winners will be invited to present keynotes in the afternoon of the conference.
