ICMPC14: July 5-9, 2016 in San Francisco, CA

We welcome you to join us at the 14th biennial International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition, held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown San Francisco, July 5 through 9, 2016. San Francisco boasts an extraordinarily diverse music scene. One can hear everything from African to Zydeco in a host of venues. San Francisco is also home to a prestigious symphony, opera, great chamber music and a lively new music scene.

Aside from its amazing music scene, the San Francisco Bay Area is a world-class hub for science and technology. The Bay Area includes Silicon Valley, home to numerous tech-startups and tech-giants such as Apple, Cisco, Google, Intel, and Oracle, to name a few. Furthermore, the San Francisco Bay Area is a home to major music technology companies including Dolby, Meyer Sound, Pandora, Shazam, Smule, Spotify, and Soundcloud.

In addition to the multitude of tech companies, multiple top-tier universities reside in the area, including the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), Stanford University, UC Davis and UC Berkeley. As such, the organizing committee for ICMPC14 consists of members from each of these universities to highlight the diversity and friendly, collaborative atmosphere in the Bay Area. We believe the unique mixture of science and technology in the Bay Area will create an exceptional experience for attendees at ICMPC14 as it will bring together leaders in both academia and industry.
