Call for Papers: 12th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Music


12th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Music
September 7-9 2009
Recife, PE - Brazil


The Symposium

The SBCM - Brazilian Symposium on Computer Music is a biannual event with international recognition in the field of computer music organized by NUCOM, the computer music interest group of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). This 12th edition will be held from September 7th to 9th, 2009, in Recife, capital of the state of Pernambuco, at the beautiful northeast Brazilian coast, and is specially dedicated to approaching the relentless universe of new paradigms for making music with computers and electronic gears, bringing up their essentials and trends.

During the symposium there will be speeches by renowned researchers, technical and music paper sessions, discussion panels, and concerts. Researchers, scientists, composers, educators, manufacturers, and all concerned with the interplay between music and technology are invited to submit works. The program will include, among others, a keynote speech by Miller Puckette (University of California, San Diego), author of Pure Data (Pd), a graphical programming language for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works widely spread in the artistic and scientific community of computer music.

The program committee will give a prize for the best student papers presented at SBCM. Papers that have a student as a major author are eligible. Two awards will be given: one for the best technical paper and another for the best music paper.
