Upcoming Events


The next semiannual meeting of the Northeast Music Cognition Group (NEMCOG) will take place at Harvard University on Saturday, January 16, 2016. The event is co-hosted by the Harvard Department of Music and the Harvard Mind Brain Behavior Music/Science Faculty Interest Group. The goal of this group is to facilitate interaction among researchers at institutions along the Northeast Corridor who are interested in music cognition, to discuss research in the field, and to identify topics of joint interest and areas for potential collaboration.


We are now accepting applications for both talks and posters!

Talks should be short, semi-formal, and aimed at a fairly general audience. The goal is to give a broad sense of the questions you're asking, not detailed answers. This year we are putting a special emphasis on poster presentations, and will have a dedicated poster session that will begin with each presenter giving a 1-2 minute "lightning introduction" to their research. We think that increasing the number of poster presentations will promote more in-depth discussions and allow us to accept a larger number of abstract submissions.


If you would like to attend NEMCOG 2016, please RSVP by November 16th, 2015 using this form. For those that are interested in presenting either a talk or a poster, the form includes a place for you to provide a title and short abstract. We will notify you of abstract acceptance and format by mid-December.
