Meeting Description:

A three-day interdisciplinary workshop on rhythm and timing will be held at the University of Glasgow, UK, on July 19-21, 2012.

The PoRT workshop is dedicated to empirical research and theoretical modelling of timing and rhythm in speech and music, in perception and action. Each day of the event will have an orientation session, with two invited talks on contrasting themes followed by a discussion by one respondent. Research papers and posters will be presented in the afternoons. Additionally, a tutorial on coupled oscillator modeling of dynamical systems will be held on the third day.

The workshop is supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. The organisers will aim for the conference fee not to exceed £100 with reduced rates available to students, unwaged and delegates from countries listed as ‘low economic resources countries’ by the World Bank.
