A multi-disciplinary look at early sonic/aural awareness and lithic sound behavior, toward a better understanding of human and music development. The intent of this conference is to explore the importance of sound in antiquity, sharing focused expertise from a variety of backgrounds in order to provide a forum for expanding previous conceptions and introducing new methodologies. We are particularly interested in the role acoustic behavior may have had in the development and design of important architecture and ritual spaces throughout the ancient world, and its possible biological impact on human brain activity.
Submission of abstracts for a 20-minute presentation and proposals for posters/demos on any topic related to the theme will be open until 01 September 2013. Abstracts should be 300 words or less plus title and author details. Authors of papers accepted for presentation by the academic committee will be notified by 15 September 2013. Final papers are required by 15 January 2014.
CONFERENCE: 19-22 February 2014 at University of Malta Valletta Campus and Corinthia Palace Hotel, Balzan, Malta
