Workshop on Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Music (MCAM'16)

Music is a central piece of our advancement. It is earnestly associated with motivation and to human social contact. Music interceded by innovation, made by PCs or presented through a PC medium, has turned into a key articulation of twenty-first century society. New forms of music dissemination and access have allowed people to establish new relationships with music. This can be found in web radio, web independently publishing, simple email access to topographically appropriated gatherings of people with minority interests, podcasts, downloads, versatile advances and digital archives. The workshop on Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Music (MCAM'16) aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between representatives of academia, industry, entertainment, and education. The committee encourages submissions of unpublished papers that employ mathematical and computational approaches to music.

Novel and previously unpublished submissions are solicited in areas including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Analysis and Understanding of Music
  • Augmented Musical Instruments 
  • Automatic Classification
  • Automatic Transcription from Audio to Common Music Notation
  • Cognitive Models for Music Systems
