Abstract: 

MusicCog/99: A Workshop Symposium in Music Cognition reviewed by Edward Klonoski MusicCog/99 was held on the campus of the Ohio State University from May 14-16, 1999. The program described the event as differing from more traditional conferences in that many of the MusicCog/99 presentations were general or review in nature - so that the workshop was an excellent opportunity to gain an overview of the state of the art in music cognition. Presentations covered a broad spectrum of topics including: infants' musical perception, ethnomusicological applications, melodic expectancy, key determination, music and emotion and rhythmic/metric perception. Overall, the papers were very informative and represented well the breadth of current music cognition research.
