Call for contributions

10th International Symposium on Computer Music Modelling and Retrieval/
Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research 2013
“Sound, Music & Motion”
October 15th – 18th 2013, 
CNRS - Laboratoire de Mécanique et d’Acoustique, Marseille, France

Conference website: http://www.cmmr2013.cnrs-mrs.fr


We are happy to announce that the CMMR 2013 – “Sound, Music & Motion” will take place in Marseille, CNRS-LMA, October 15th-18th 2013. This year CMMR celebrates its 10th anniversary. For this special occasion the symposium will be held in Marseille, the European Capital of Culture 2013 (http://www.mp2013.fr/?lang=en). 

CMMR2013 is organized by the CNRS - Laboratoire de Mécanique et d’Acoustique (LMA) and Ubris Studio in partnership with the Institut des Sciences du Mouvement (ISM), Laboratoire d'Analyse, Topologie, Probabilités (LATP), ASTRAM, the research lab associated to the Sciences, Arts et Techniques de l'Image et du Son (SATIS) department, and n+n corsino. 

As usual, contributions in all the topics covered by CMMR are welcome but contributions related to the conference theme “Sound, Music and Motion” will be strongly encouraged this year. The notion of motion is important in any field related to sound and music, since it can be studied from different standpoints spanning from physics to perceptual and cognitive considerations, and from scientific to artistic approaches. 


All the CMMR gatherings have resulted in post symposium proceedings built up from selected peer-reviewed papers and published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences Series ( LNCS 2771, LNCS 3310, LNCS 3902, LNCS 4969, LNCS 5493, LNCS 5954, LNCS 6684, LNCS 7172), and this is also planned for CMMR 2013.

Several types of contributions can be submitted to CMMR 2013:

  • scientific papers (for oral or poster sessions)
  • demonstrations and installations
  • music


Original contributions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Sound, Music and motions (e.g. analysis, retrieval, synthesis, composition, performance, music for images)
  • Gestural control of sound synthesis
  • Musical gesture analysis
  • Augmented musical instruments
  • Musical interfaces
  • Musically inspired HCI
  • Mapping & Sonification
  • Computational musicology
  • Auditory perception and cognition

  • New methods for music representation and visualization
  • Retrieval and music recommendation tools
  • Intelligent music tutoring systems
  • Music games and interactive learning
  • Music production and composition tools
  • Structuring of audio data
  • Cooperative music networks
  • Analysis, recognition, comparison, classification, and modeling of sound and music
  • Music and sound data mining
