About the Conference:

The deluge of computational techniques developed over the last decade has had a transformative impact in all areas of academic and industrial research. The goal of this conference is to explore potential applications for the integration of these techniques into interdisciplinary music research. This year’s theme, synthesis, emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, bringing together scholars with interests in music studies and computational methods. It encourages music researchers and computer scientists to initiate dialogue that will provide new insights into the most pressing questions across disciplines.
