Tenth Rhythm Perception and Production Workshop
Bilzen, Belgium, July 2005

10th Rhythm Perception and Production Workshop (RPPW2005)

July 2-6, 2005 at Landcommanderij Alden Biezen (Bilzen, Belgium)



The workshop is an opportunity for experts in Rhythm Perception and
Production to discuss their ongoing experimental and theoretical work with
expert colleagues. The workshop has an interdisciplinary character, with a
focus on cognitive and experimental psychology and music research, but
also welcoming contributions from other domains (e.g. linguistics,
computer science, neurosciences,...).

Participation will happen on invitation by the organizing committee on the
basis of the submission of an abstract. The abstract should count between
200 and 400 words and must be sent to before April 15,
2005. It is the intention of the organizers to produce a special issue
with a selection of contributions to the workshop in a peer reviewed
journal relevant to the field, as has happened after previous workshops.

The Landcommanderij Alden Biezen is an impressive castle complex that
served as headquarters of the Teutonic Order in the region. The complex
has roots in the middle ages, but the present buildings mainly date from
the 16th-18th centuries. It is located in Rijkhoven (Bilzen) in the east
of Belgium, not far from the Dutch city of Maastricht.

The workshop will be supported by the IPEM (Dept. of Musicology, Ghent
University) and the Research Society "Foundations of Music Research" of
the Flemish Fund for Scientific Research (FWO).

Looking forward to see you at RPPW,

  Leon van Noorden
