Why you should attend ISQRMM conference

“One of the most anticipated music and medicine conferences of the year”- (Akombo, 2011)

ISQRMM conference participants customarily enjoy both amiable and amicable professional relationships including but not limited to professional collegiality, professional interaction through discourses, and collaborative inquiries on scientific research on music and medicine. These share common objectives — to find answers to unanswered questions and ask new research questions on music and medicine.

ISQRMM invites all music scholars and allied health practitioners to submit proposals. Master’s and Doctoral students are also encouraged to participate. Presenters on complementary and alternative therapies on the human body, mind, and soul are welcome as well as cultural approaches and social science studies in quantitative research-based approaches.
