Call for papers

CMMR 2021 invites the submission of papers related to all aspects of multidisciplinary fields regarding music and computers, in particular, submissions matching this year’s topic “Music and the AI Era”. CMMR is an open-minded symposium that provides an opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, and findings for everyone engaged in music and computers from different standpoints. While this year’s CMMR will be held online, it includes a scientific program with long and short oral presentations as well as a music program. We warmly welcome submissions from researchers, educators, members of industry, composers, performers, software developers, librarians, and others with an interest in music-related topics.

Presentation Format:
CMMR 2021 will be held in the full online format. In principle, every presenter will present their work via Zoom in the oral presentation style. Every presentation will be broadcasted on YouTube Live and archived on YouTube. To encourage friendly communication among the participants, we will utilize Slack and enable them to have discussions about each presentation on Slack.
