Deadline for papers submission: January 15, 2015.

The first International Conference on New Technologies for Music Notation and Representation is dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in Music Notation and Representation, with a strong focus on computer tools and applications, as well as a tight connection to music creation.

Until very recently, the support provided by the computer music to the field of symbolic notation remained fairly conventional. However, recent developments indicate that the field of tools for musical notation is now moving towards new forms of representation. Moreover, musical notation, transcription, sonic visualization, and musical representation are often associated in the fields of musical analysis, ethnology, and acoustics. The aim of this conference is to explore all recent mutations of notation and representation in all domains of music.
