In the following we report links to pages that we have found interesting and related to our goals.

Institutions

MIT Media Lab

Founded in 1985, the MIT Media Lab is one of the world’s leading research and academic organizations. Unconstrained by traditional disciplines, Media Lab designers, engineers, artists, and scientists strive to create technologies and experiences that enable people to understand and transform their lives, communities, and environments.

Ircam

IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music directed by Frank Madlener, is one of the world’s largest public research centers dedicated to both musical expression and scientific research. This unique location where artistic sensibilities collide with scientific and technological innovation brings together over 160 collaborators. Founded by Pierre Boulez, IRCAM is associated with the Centre Pompidou, under the tutelage of the French Ministry of Culture. The mixed STMS research lab (Sciences and Technologies for Music and Sound), housed by IRCAM, also benefits from the support of the CNRS and Sorbonne University.

Interdisciplinary Center for Computer Music Research

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) develops research combining music, science and technology. The research expertise ranges from musicology and composition, to biomedical applications of music and development of new technologies for musical creativity. The centre is affiliated to the School of Humanities and Performing Arts, and has connections with the Faculty of Health: Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences, the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Centre for Health Technology.

Journals

Expert Systems with Applications

Expert Systems With Applications is a refereed international journal whose focus is on exchanging information relating to expert and intelligent systems applied in industry, government, and universities worldwide. The thrust of the journal is to publish papers dealing with the design, development, testing, implementation, and/or management of expert and intelligent systems, and also to provide practical guidelines in the development and management of these systems.

Information Sciences

Information Sciences publishes original, innovative and creative research results. The journal is designed to serve researchers, developers, managers, strategic planners, graduate students and others interested in state-of-the art research activities in information, knowledge engineering and intelligent systems. Topics include: Information Theory, Mathematical Linguistics, Automata Theory, Cognitive Science, Theories of Qualitative Behaviour, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Intelligence, Soft Computing, Semiotics, Computational Biology and Bio-informatics.

Evolutionary Computation

Evolutionary Computation is a leading journal in its field. It provides an international forum for facilitating and enhancing the exchange of information among researchers involved in both the theoretical and practical aspects of computational systems drawing their inspiration from nature, with particular emphasis on evolutionary models of computation such as genetic algorithms, evolutionary strategies, classifier systems, evolutionary programming, and genetic programming. It welcomes articles from related fields such as swarm intelligence (e.g. Ant Colony Optimization and Particle Swarm Optimization), and other nature-inspired computation paradigms (e.g. Artificial Immune Systems).

Multimedia Tools and Applications

Multimedia Tools and Applications publishes original research articles on multimedia development and system support tools as well as case studies of multimedia applications. It also features experimental and survey articles. The journal is intended for academics, practitioners, scientists and engineers who are involved in multimedia system research, design and applications.

Computer Music Journal

Computer Music Journal is published quarterly with an annual sound and video anthology containing curated music. For four decades, it has been the leading publication about computer music, concentrating fully on digital sound technology and all musical applications of computers. This makes it an essential resource for musicians, composers, scientists, engineers, computer enthusiasts, and anyone exploring the wonders of computer-generated sound.

Journal of Mathematics and Music

Journal of Mathematics and Music aims to advance the use of mathematical modelling and computation in music theory. The Journal focuses on mathematical approaches to musical structures and processes, including mathematical investigations into music-theoretic or compositional issues as well as mathematically motivated analyses of musical works or performances. In consideration of the deep unsolved ontological and epistemological questions concerning knowledge about music, the Journal is open to a broad array of methodologies and topics, particularly those outside of established research fields such as acoustics, sound engineering, auditory perception, linguistics etc.

Conferences

EvoMusart

The use of Artificial Intelligence for the development of artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a growing interest in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques (such as Artificial Neural Network, Evolutionary Computation, Swarm, Cellular Automata, Alife) in fields such as: visual art and music generation, analysis, and interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; design; and other creative tasks. The main goal of EvoMUSART is to bring together researchers who are using Artificial Intelligence techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

Information Visualization - MuVis

Contributions to this symposium are expected to deal with case studies, algorithms, analytic and visualization tools, methods and techniques that address topics such as, new technologies to visualize music, visualization for music composition, visualization for music performance, innovative teaching and learning technologies for music through visualization, user accessibility and disabilities, software for educational composition systems, visualization for music plagiarism, interaction design to support real-time music performance, user engagement and motivation in music, mobile visualization for music, emotion-based music visualization, virtual and augmented reality, collaboration and social interactions.
