Call for Papers
Abstracts in English for oral presentations, posters, workshops, symposia and roundtables are invited in all areas relevant to music therapy. We especially encourage all ideas you might have on designing a workshop, as they are always very popular.
Deadline for all proposal submissions – November 1, 2017.
All abstracts will be submitted to a double-blind peer review, coordinated by the Scientific Committee.
