CONFERENCE: Mathematics and Computation in Music, 15-17 June 2011, FRANCE

IRCAM, Paris, France

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 
dcouverte (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).

The detailed program of the conference is available at:
