8th SMCC 2011 - Sound and Music Computing Conference
6 - 9 July, Padova, Italy

The SMC Conference is the forum for international exchanges around the core interdisciplinary topics of Sound and Music Computing. SMC 2011 is jointly organized by the Department of Information Engineering (DEI), University of Padova, and the Conservatory "Cesare Pollini" of Padova, Italy. The two institutions have a long history of fruitful collaborations, which started back in the 1970's when the Center of Computational Sonology was founded at the University of Padova. Starting from 2009, the links between DEI and the Conservatory are being further reinforced with the creation of a new joint laboratory conceived to be a place where musicians and researchers meet to create a mixed artistic/scientific environment, the SaMPL (Sound and Music Processing Lab).

The general theme for the SMC 2011 conference is "Creativity Rethinks Science".
Creativity is at the core of progress and innovation mechanisms, culture and knowledge are central to most creative processes, so it is only natural that much attention should be devoted to create the appropriate conditions where culture and knowledge can complement each other and proliferate into a unique economic resource which promotes creativity as the key element to today's societal developments. Since the concept of experimentation is common both to researchers and to artists alike, it should be possible to identify and define a number of common frameworks and tools which provide an appropriate interaction set between researchers and artists. SMC is a discipline where several existing unconventional creative environments are found, where research and art already collaborate in a productive way injecting new ideas and concepts in both fields. These provide a fertile ground to analyze and try to understand artistic thinking as a driver of innovation, the relationship between artistic and scientific methodologies, and the processes that lead to successful artistic and/or scientific results.

SMC 2011 will feature lectures, posters/demos, musical/sonic works, tutorials and other types of events. The SMC Summer School will take place just before the Conference and it will aim at giving an opportunity to young researchers interested in the field to learn about some of the core interdisciplinary topics and to share their own experiences with other young researchers.
