7th Sound and Music Computing Summer School
"Embodied Sound and Music"
02-06 July 2011, Padova, Italy
Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova
Conservatorio Cesare Pollini, Padova

The goal of the SMC Summer School is to give an opportunity to young
researchers interested in the field to learn about some of the core
interdisciplinary topics of SMC, and to share their own experiences with
other young researchers.
This year the focus is on the embodied links between sound, music, and
movement. Lectures and hands-on projects will explore this theme from
several viewpoints, including novel sound synthesis techniques, multimodal
interaction, music cognition, movement analysis and characterization.

Academic Program
* 8 hours of lectures by Leon van Noorden (University of Ghent, Belgium) on
  Music and Movement
* 8 hours of lectures by Federico Fontana (University of Udine, Italy) on
  Interactive SMC: The Challenges of Continuous Interaction
* 12 hours of hands-on projects focused on the two themes of the Summer School
* 2 hours of oral presentations by the  participating students
Lectures are designed to be of interest to any PhD student or researcher
in the field of Sound and Music Computing.
