SMC / ICMC Summer School 2014

Topic: Computational Music Analysis

Athens, Greece, 11 - 14th September, 2014


The Sound and Music Computing summer school promotes interdisciplinary education and research in the field of Sound and Music Computing. It is aimed at graduate students working on their Master or PhD thesis, but it is also open to any person carrying out research in this field. The 2014 SMC Summer School will take place in Athens, Greece, right before the SMC/ICMC Conference, between the 11th and 14th of September 2014.

The topic of the summer school is Computational Music Analysis.

Maximum 20 participants will be selected to attend. If you are a PhD student in music information retrieval, musicology, music, music psychology, computer science, engineering, and related disciplines, you might find this summer school particularly exciting and helpful towards the completion of your degree. If you work in MIR, you might find that this year's musicological orientation of the summer school gives a new perspective to your current work. If you are a computer scientist or engineer, you will gain an understanding of music analysis methodologies and how to apply your skills in the analysis of music.
