Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music


This is the official Website of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music (SMCM).

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.

Membership includes a print subscription to Journal of Mathematics and Music, the SMCM’s official journal. For full information on Journal of Mathematics and Music, a new journal which commenced publication in 2007 published by Taylor & Francis, including manuscript submission instructions, library subscription options, details on free email alerting services, editorial board information and the online edition, please visit its homepage at

The Society publishes a book series Computational Music Science at Springer, Heidelberg.

The Society hosts a biennial meeting, the International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM) and occasionally co-hosts other conferences.
