About us

Welcome to the Society for
Mathematics and Computation in Music

The Society was founded in 2006 as an International Forum for researchers and musicians working in the trans-disciplinary field at the intersection of music, mathematics and computation. The SMCM is registered in the USA.

At its inaugural meeting in Berlin on May 20, 2007, 13 board members were elected. The board later elected the officers for the society. For details, please see the March 2008 newsletter here.
