The second International Symposium on Performance Science, ISPS 2009, explored the theme Performing Excellence from interdisciplinary perspectives across the arts, as well as the natural, social, and applied sciences. Hosted by the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries at The University of Auckland, the conference brought together delegates from over 30 countries to debate and to experience performing excellence through a wide array of theoretical, practical, and methodological perspectives. This proceedings volume represents the lively discussion that ensued. Covering such topics as motivation and the development of expertise, the psychology and physicality of performance, performers’ health, and the perception, analysis, and evaluation of performance, the 100 articles contained herein offer a glimpse into a growing and vibrant field.
