MCM 2017

Mathematics and Computation in Music


Mexico City                      26-29 June 2017




The Sixth International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music will be held June 26-29, 2017 at

Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico City, México.


MCM is the flagship conference of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music (SMCM), whose official publication is the Journal of Mathematics and Music (JMM).


MCM 2017 continues the tradition of biennial international conferences of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music held on alternating sides of the Atlantic. In this occasion it is hosted by the Facultad de Ciencias at UNAM.


The conference brings together researchers from around the world who combine mathematics or computation with music theory, music analysis, composition and performance. MCM provides a dedicated platform for the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers in mathematics, computer science, music theory, composition and performance, musicology and related disciplines.


There will be introductory talks to specific fields of research.


The disciplines of Mathematics and Music share an intertwined history stretching back more than two and a half millennia. More recently, computer science has made possible new approaches to these disciplines, often with transformative effect.


In addition to the scientific program, there will be concerts open to both congress participants and the general public.



The publication of revised selected papers will be as a post-proceeding in LNCS/LNAI in the series name Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence The MCM 2017 Conference URL will be included among the list of Forthcoming Proceedings ( ) on Springer server.


The proceedings are now available online:  LNAI 10527, MCM 2017

There is a free access for a period of 4 weeks.
