The 3rd International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM 2011) took place on June 15-17, 2011 at IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination of Acoustics and Music in Paris, France. MCM 2011 was integrated into IRCAM’s most important artistic event of the season, the Agora Music Festival. As in the case of the first two conferences (2007 in Berlin and 2009 at Yale University), this conference aimed to provide a multi-disciplinary platform dedicated to the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers involved in mathematics, computer science, music theory, composition, musicology, or other related disciplines. The keynote presentations featured the renowned composer and conductor Pierre Boulez, founder and honorary director of IRCAM, Fields medalist Alain Connes, philosopher Alain Badiou and computer-scientist Stephen Wolfram.
MCM 2011 was also accompanied by a series of conference-related artistic events (concerts, exhibitions, workshops, …) organized in collaboration with some of the most important cultural and educational centers of France, such as the Centre Pompidou and Universcience.
The MCM 2011 proceedings have been published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.
Thanks to all the participants and partners who helped us making this conference a successful event!
