Apologies for cross-posting ++++++++++++++++ Sound and Music Computing in Europe: the Workshop organised by the Future and Emerging Technologies - FET-Open (F2), European Commission, Information Society and Media Directorate-General in collaboration with the S2S² Coordination Action - FET-Open FP6-03773 April 16 2007, Tour Madou, Place Madou, 1 Bruxelles Sound and Music Computing (SMC) is a highly interdisciplinary domain that is at the core of the ICT-innovation in cultural and creative industries of modern Europe. Sound and Music Computing has inherited the glorious artistic, scientific and technological history of Electroacoustic and Computer Music which it expands into innovative realms such as artificial cognition, neurosciences and interaction design. This Sound and Music Computing Workshop is the first occasion, in the European Context, to show to a composite public the achievements and results of a highly interdisciplinary domain such as that of Sound and Music Community. The workshop will be the occasion for the launch of the SMC Research Roadmap written by the S2S² Consortium ( and targeted at the growth and expansion of the community at large. The Sound and Music Computing Workshop will provide an occasion to meet the key researchers in this field and catch a glimpse of what medium and longer term research will bring to cultural and creative industries. True to its interdisciplinary nature, the Sound and Music Computing Workshop will include scientific presentations, policy maker's guidelines, roadmapping discussions and even a musical performance with new and extraordinary instruments. This broad range of activities of the Sound will appeal to a wide public ranging from the research specialist to the curious layman, from the R&D engineer to the contemporary musician. In view of the upcoming ICT call for projects, this Sound and Music Computing Workshop will also be open to presentations of SMC-related project submissions.
