Northern Network for Empirical Music Research

Host: Music, Mind, Machine @ The University of Sheffield

12 November 2021

Topic: Behavioural research methods

We are happy to announce the next NEMUR meeting which will be held online on 12 November 2021. The focus of this meeting and the next one is Research Methods (8 April 2022 in Liverpool). On the 12th Nov, we will be discussing behavioural research methods related to 1) measurement and analysis of physiological responses, 2) ensemble performance and interaction and 3) statistics using a Bayesian approach. We hope this approach will foster knowledge and expertise sharing among the NEMUR community.
