Dear colleagues and fellow IAMM members,

We have started preparing the 5th Music and Medicine Conference with a lot of care and hoping that everyone who decides to come to Barcelina will find a great programme and will have a pleasent stay. We want to hold a conference with active participation of international first class speakers and to promote the role of the IAMM as a wolrd referent in the field of Music and Medicine. This encounter will offer a research framework to show new techniques in musictherapy and how it is applied in institutional and hospitalary settings.

We are choosing the most adequate location taking into account the importance of the IAMM world conference. We hope that besides the scientific activitites offered in the congress, participants will also be able to enjoy our city Barcelona, with it's wonderfull weather, it's beaches, history, culture and of course it's live music. For all this we invite you to participare to the 5th Music and Medicine Conference.

Looking forward to having you in Barcelona and spending an unforgettable experience,


Núria Escudé
President of the Organizing Committee
