SEMPRE-ICMPC12 Young Researcher Award winners
The Young Researcher Award has been awarded jointly to the following two
. Birgitta Burger: "Emotions move us: Basic emotions in music influence people's movement to music" &
. Chia-Jung Tsay: "The Impact of Visual Cues on the Judgment and Perceptions of Music Performance"
The Young Researcher Award selection committee, consisting of Graham Welch (president of SEMPRE), Reinhard Kopiez (president of ESCOM), and Kate Stevens (member of the ICMPC-ESCOM12 Scientific Advisory board), examined carefully all the shortlisted applications, and decided this year's YRA prize to be shared by the above two authors. Eleven shortlisted full papers, that were reviewed by at least two reviewers from the Scientific Advisory board, were examined carefully by the YRA selection committee in terms of their overall quality and originality, and, in terms of meeting all the criteria described on the conference webpage, and delivered their final decision. These two submissions were judged to be the best among all shortlisted top-rating submissions.
On behalf of the YRA selection committee and the conference organising
committee, I would like to congratulate whole-heartedly the two winners for
their success. We look forward to their special YRA addresses during the
