RPPW is an international biannual event that brings researchers from various disciplines together to engage in discussions about the scientific study of rhythm. Rhythm is at the core of a wide range of human tasks, from speaking and dancing to walking and synchronising with others.
RPPW 2021 is organized by RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion at the University of Oslo. RITMO is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Oslo focusing on rhythm as a structuring mechanism for the temporal dimensions of human life.
The RPPW programme contains talks, posters, keynotes, and performances.
The topics of RPPW include (but are not limited to):
- Rhythm and synchronisation
- Synchrony and order perception
- Multisensory temporal processing
- Acquisition of time knowledge and temporal concepts
- Timing and memory, attention, emotion and metacognition
- Beat tracking and onset detection
- Music structure analysis
- Expressive timing, microrhythm and performance modelling
- Ensemble or group performance

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I access the conference?
A: All the prerecorded material can be accessed here.
Q: Will I be able to attend from a different time zone?
A: We worked hard to find a time slot that would work for as many people as possible. The programme will run from 16.00-22.00 UCT+2 / Central European Summer Time. Check the event time converter to see your time zone. Our current time is:
Q: I will have an oral presentation at the conference? How will this be done?
A: The talk sessions will run as a Zoom Webinar. Here only "panellists" can talk, "attendees" will not share audio/video. You need to enter the Zoom Webinar 10 minutes before your session is scheduled to begin. An assistant will promote you to a panellist. The chair will welcome everyone to the session, and then the pre-recorded videos will be played. After the videos are played, there will be a discussion where the attendees can ask questions in writing in the Q&A function in Zoom.
Q: I am chairing a session at the conference; how is this done?
A: We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the presenters and the content of the papers before the conference. The sessions will run as a Zoom Webinar. Here only "panellists" can talk, "attendees" will not share audio/video. You need to enter the Zoom Webinar 10 minutes before your session is scheduled to begin. An assistant will promote you to a panellist and be present during the session to play the recordings and help the session chair and the presenters with technical issues.
The session will proceed as follows:
- Introduce the session with a brief welcome remark and mention the session's topic. Then list the presenters (names and institutional affiliations) in the order of presentation and provide information about:
- the structure of the session (recorded talks followed by live Q&A)
- how to ask questions (both the audience and the presenters should be instructed to use the Q&A function in Zoom).
- the slack channels that have been established for each of the workshop's themes (SMS; entrainment; etc.)
- The recorded talks will then be shown without breaks (the session assistant will take care of this).
- Live Q&A with the presenters and the audience using the Q&A function in Zoom. (Attendees can ask questions throughout the session—even during the recorded talks.)
- Screen the log of questions in the Q&A window for content. (You can see new questions in the "Open" tab of the Q&A window. If you believe a question is inappropriate, it can be "dismissed.")
- Choose the questions and the order of questions and ask them out loud to the presenters. You may also ask your own questions directly or ask the presenters if they have questions for each other (attendees can only ask questions in writing.)
- Make sure to prepare questions for all presenters and ask them if needed. Please make every reasonable effort to balance the time spent on each of the presentations during the Q&A.
- Thank the presenters and the audience and encourage the participants to use the slack channel to discuss unanswered questions further.
Q: I am presenting a poster at the conference, how should I prepare?
A: Please enter your Zoom room 5 minutes before the start of the poster session. Each poster session will start with a plenary poster blitz. We will then open breakout rooms. There is one breakout room per poster, and in your breakout room, you can share the slides you have prepared with the visitors. People are free to move between the breakout rooms. Please remember that people will come and go from your poster room, so you should only prepare a few slides 1-3. You do not need to submit these beforehand; they will be presented from your own computer using Zoom's "share screen" functionality. These slides will replace the traditional poster, as that format is less suited for online conferences.
