REVISED CFP

Due to a number of questions concerning the relation of music to the conference,
please note that this conference is entirely interdisciplinary, and not
specifically music-related. We welcome and encourage abstracts from all
disciplines. In light of this, a new deadline for the submission of abstracts
has been set at 30 November 2005. Notification of final decision on abstracts
will be made in December.
