A two-day meeting on crossmodal attention and multisensory integration was held in Oxford on the 1st and 2nd October, 1999, at Somerville College, Oxford. The aim of this meeting was to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines, who are interested in issues related to multisensory integration and crossmodal attention. The meeting offered the first opportunity for scientists from different disciplines to come together in a specialized forum to discuss all matters pertaining to crossmodal interactions between different sensory systems. The meeting consisted of a number of keynote addresses, together with a series of shorter talks detailing recent research in this area. Fifteen oral presentations took place on each of the two days of the meeting, with many of the key researchers in the area of crossmodal research presenting their findings. In addition, 23 posters were also presented. A number of converging approaches to the study of crossmodal interactions were discussed from behavioural studies in normals and brain-damaged patients, to neurophysiological and neuroimaging studies of the neural correlates of multisensory integration. 150 delegates attended the meeting, making their way to Oxford from all over North America, Australia, and many different parts of Europe.
