12th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Music
September 7-9 2009
Porto Digital, 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.

Researchers, scientists, composers, educators, manufacturers, and all
concerned with the interplay between music and technology are invited to
submit works.

During the symposium there will be speeches by renowned researchers,
technical and music paper sessions, discussion panels, and concerts. The
program will include, among others, a keynote speech by Miller Puckette
(University of California, San Diego), author of Pure Data (Pd)
real-time graphical programming environment, a tutorial on mathematical
models in computer-aided music theory by IRCAM, and a keynote speech by
composer Daniel Teruggi, director of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales
at INA (Institut National De L'Audiovisuel, Paris).

We are proud to inform that a selection of the best papers presented at
SBCM will be invited to submit an extended version for a dedicated
Special Issue of the Journal of New Music Research, and the selected
musical pieces will be published with the support of the Electronic
Music Foundation (EMF). The program committee will also 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. One prize will be
a one-year Forum IRCAM subscription.
