IRCAM, Paris, June 15-17

The 3rd International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM 2011) will take place on June 15-17, 2011 at IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination of Acoustics and Music in Paris, France. MCM 2011 will be integrated into IRCAM’s most important artistic event of the season, the Agora Music Festival, which is running from June 8 to 18, 2011. As in the case of the first two conferences (which took place in 2007 in Berlin and in 2009 at Yale University), the third Mathematics and Computation in Music Conference aims to provide a multi-disciplinary platform dedicated to the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers involved in mathematics, computer science, music theory, composition, musicology, or other related disciplines. The Keynote speakers will be the renowned composer and conductor Pierre Boulez, founder and honorary director of IRCAM, Fields medalist Alain Connes, philosopher Alain Badiou and computer-scientist Stephen Wolfram. The conference will be accompanied by a series of conference-related artistic events
(concerts, exhibitions, workshops, …) organized in collaboration with some of the most important cultural and educational centers of France, such as the Centre Pompidou and Universcience.

MCM2011 is organized under the aegis of the SMCM (Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music), SMF (French Mathematical Society), in partnership with the Centre Pompidou and the Palais de la découverte (a Universcience venue), in collaboration with CiE (Computability in Europe), ESMA (European Society for Mathematics and Arts) and with the support of  the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), UPMC, AFIM (French Association for Computer Music) and the SFAM (French Society of Music Analysis).
