Call for Contribution: MCM2015

The Fifth Biennial International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM2015) will be held 22-25 June 2015 at Queen Mary University of London in the United Kingdom. MCM is the flagship conference of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music, whose official publication is the Journal of Mathematics and Music.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world who adopt mathematical andor computational approaches to address any aspect of music theory, music analysis, composition and performance. MCM aims to provide a dedicated platform for the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers in mathematics, informatics, music theory, composition, musicology, and related disciplines.

We welcome submissions on any topic relating to mathematics andor computation and music, including (but not limited to)

Mathematical and computational models of andor approaches to
– musicology, music theory and analysis, composition
– musical performance and improvisation
– the perception and cognition of any aspect of musical structure
– music and emotion
– musical learning and education
– musical interaction and gestures

Logical, philosophical and methodological aspects of mathematics and computation in music
The history of mathematics and computation in music
Applications of mathematical music theory and computational tools for musicians, musicologists and others who work with music
