Virtual Conference

conference announcementWe are pleased to announce the dates for this year’s conference: June 3rd-4th 2023.

The theme is: The Neuroscience of Sound and Music. The floor is open not only to neuroscientists, but to all those ready to investigate fundamental questions related to music, sound and healing. Why does music touch us so deeply on emotional and spiritual levels? What musical patterns are most efficient in learning or healing? How is music processed by our consciousness?

We are accepting proposals for the 2023 conference. If you already have a proposal, you may send the title of your presentation, a short paragraph describing your proposal along with your bio at propsals2023@isqrmm.com.

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. John Stuart Reid, Acoustic-Physics Researcher as keynote speaker of our 2023 conference with a presentation on Sound Healing at the Cellular Level.

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.


Conference History

The history of ISQRMM spans from our inaugural conference in 2011 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, USA, which was rated among the best conferences by the Utah Business Bureau. Following that success, ISQRMM successfully held the 2nd biennial conference at The University of Georgia, Athens, GA (USA) in 2013, the 3rd biennial conference at Immaculata University, Immaculata, PA (USA) in 2015, the 4th biennial conference at Bridgeport University in Bridgeport, CT (USA) in 2017, and the 5th ISQRMM biennial conference at Molloy College, Rockville, New York (USA) in 2019.
