9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology – CIM14
Empirics, Computation, Mathematics, Science and Technology in Music and
Acoustical Signal Analysis – ECMST ~ MASA IV

Dear colleagues,
We wish to hold a special session on Iannis Xenakis within CIM14 which
will take place on 4-6 December 2014 at the Institute for Music Research
in Berlin, on the theme of technology. Please follow this link for
details on the conference:

We would like to invite you to send a proposal to CIM14 on Xenakis and
Technology, that corresponds to the suggested topics found on the link
above. Proposals are welcome by multiple or single authors, as long as
they are interdisciplinary and will be reviewed by the Programme
Committee of CIM14. Abstracts of maximum 300 words should be submitted
online via the following link:

Please consider the submission details including the important
interdisciplinary criteria on the submission page.
Deadline for abstract submission: 05 August 2014

Additionally and concurrently to CIM14, we are hoping to hold a poster
session, titled Iannis Xenakis – Composition between Art and Algorithm,
as the 4th edition of ECMST ~ MASA (Empirics, Computation, Mathematics,
Science and Technology in Music and Acoustical Signal Analysis). This
poster session will run parallel to (but independent of) CIM14 and thus
we hope it will have enhanced impact. If you have not already sent a
proposal for this poster session, you still have to option to do so.
This session has a different focus and format and is an ideal addition
to a CIM14 submission: ECMST ~ MASA aims to provide a platform for
presenting and exchanging information regarding the current state of
empirical, mathematical, technological, scientific and computer based
research in music and sound.

If you wish to submit a proposal for ECMST ~ MASA please send a
description of 300 words maximum to and

Please note that the final version will be restricted by space, as the
posters are printed in A0 format, but a good indication would be around
1500 words (depending on the figures, tables, etc.). Also possible are
sound and video assets that can be presented on site and as a supplement

Please feel free to forward.
Best wishes,
Dimitris Exarchos and Timour Klouche
