ISPS 2015 was held at Ryukoku University from September 2-6, 2015.
This symposium is held every two years and provides an excellent opportunity for discussing the very latest findings and applications in performance science research. The ISPS 2015 is the largest symposium to date, with approximately 150 spoken papers, poster presentations, and workshops given by leading researchers from all around the world. There, I presented our latest research titled "Mouthpiece Force in French horn Playing" at the poster session.
I discussed and debated our findings with many attendees. It was a very constructive and beneficial meeting for me.
Additionly, Professor Kinoshita, who is professor emeritus at Osaka University and my mentor in my doctral course, presented his research titled "Force Control and Movement Organization in Skilled Musical Performance" at the keynote address.
He presented on the motor control for pianists and violinists when playing instruments. The keynote address attracted a huge audience and it was a great success at this conference.
The next ISPS will be held in Iceland in 2017.
