Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our 2nd science & sounds conference on 6 and 7 September 2024 in Hamburg on the topic of music therapy in pain medicine, which we are organising at the Centre for Music Medicine and Music Therapy together with the Centre for Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine at the University Clinic Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and the International Society for Music in Medicine ISMM.

We are expecting Joke Bradt (Drexel University Melbourne), Andrew Rosetti (Mount Sinai Hospital, New York), Katie Fitzpatrick and Hilary Moss (both University of Limerick) and Eckard Altenmüller (University Hannover) as guest speakers and will be entering into an intensive transdisciplinary exchange with UKE Hamburg.

The scientific symposium will be held in English, the next day we welcome the interested public to an open forum with lectures, workshops and a case conference in German and an expert panel plus members meeting of ISMM. Training credits can be acquired for all events.

We look forward to numerous registrations using the QR code provided on the attached flyer. Please also pass on the announcement to your colleagues.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hamburg already this year!

With best regards from the Institute of Music Therapy.
