The Sixth International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music


MCM is the flagship conference of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music (SMCM), whose official publication is the Journal of Mathematics and Music (JMM).

MCM 2017 continues the tradition of biennial international conferences of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music held on alternating sides of the Atlantic. In this occasion it is hosted by the Facultad de Ciencias at UNAM.

The conference brings together researchers from around the world who combine mathematics or computation with music theory, music analysis, composition and performance. MCM provides a dedicated platform for the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers in mathematics, computer science, music theory, composition and performance, musicology and related disciplines.

There will be introductory talks to specific fields of research.

The disciplines of Mathematics and Music share an intertwined history stretching back more than two and a half millennia. More recently, computer science has made possible new approaches to these disciplines, often with transformative effect. 

In addition to the scientific program, there will be concerts open to both congress participants and the general public.
