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.

The Society hosts a biennial meeting, the International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM) and occasionally co-hosts other conferences.
MCM 2026 will be held outside of Europe, for example, in the Americas. The Executive Board is now accepting proposals for hosts, and will decide by May 1, 2024. The host for MCM 2026 should send at least one delegate to MCM 2024 (University of Coimbra, Portugal) to make a short (5-10 minute) Power Point presentation to the members of the SMCM at the general meeting, held biennially at the conferences.
The SMCM will collaborate with the host institution and/or individuals in the conference planning process, in order to serve as a resource, and to guarantee the continuity and growth of the MCM conference series.
