General proceeding for paper submission


The organizers of MCM 2022 encourage submissions of unpublished papers that use mathematical and/or computational approaches to music theory, music analysis, composition, performance, by researchers or teams of researchers from any relevant field.


Particularly, we welcome submissions on any topic relating to mathematics and/or computation in music, including (but not limited to):


We invite submissions of the following types:


Paper submission must be made to any of the following members of the Scientific Programme Committee in pdf format files.


• Mariana Montiel:


• Brent Milam:


• Jeremy Kastine:


• Octavio A. Agustín-Aquino:


• Emilio Lluis-Puebla:


If you have sent your submission for the special session on artificial intelligence to Michael Franklin,

please resend it to one of the scientific program committee members whose emails are given above.


 IMPORTANT: MCM 2022 will carry out a blind peer-review of the papers submitted. Authors must send two versions of their papers:


Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions  and use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Templates and instructions can be downloaded via the Internet Explorer. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.



 Poster size can be A0 or 70 cm x 100 cm, printed on photographic paper, and should be installed by the author.


Notification acceptance:  MARCH 5th, 2022


Long and short papers

Long and short paper submissions should take the form of complete papers; each paper submission should include an abstract of up to 150 words. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in an edited volume in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science, as were the proceedings of previous MCM conferences. These memoirs will be available in hard copy during the conference.



At the final plenary session of MCM 2019, it was decided that it is important to increase outreach efforts. In response, at MCM 2022 we will put on a public outreach event at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA). The goals will be to (1) engage the general public in our areas of interest and (2) demonstrate to each other how effective outreach activities can be implemented.

This event, called Math+Music@MODA, will take place on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM, and will not conflict with any scheduled conference session. We are looking for volunteers to design and facilitate activities that can quickly engage visitors as they stop at various stations placed around the museum. The activities should help visitors (with no particular background in math or music) appreciate the role that mathematics and computation can play in enhancing their personal enjoyment and/or understanding of music.


Ideally, visitors will leave each activity with a physical artifact or web link that they can use to share their experience with others. For example, a pamphlet explaining the main points of the activity, or online access to an audio/video/midi file of music they created in the activity. This could potentially increase our reach to family and friends of visitors as well.


If you have an idea for an activity that you would like to facilitate, please email Jeremy Kastine at and addressing the following.


*A brief description of the activity.

*Is this activity adaptable to visitors of all ages? All levels of music background? All levels of math background?

*What materials/equipment would be necessary? What would you be able to bring with you, and what would need to be provided on-site?

*How much physical space is needed?

*Could the activity work well outdoors in the plaza in front of MODA (weather permitting)?

*How much noise will the activity make?

*How much time do you anticipate each visitor spending with your activity?


We will be able to accommodate 6-12 activities. Submissions received by January 15th, 2022, will receive full consideration. Submissions will continue to be accepted after that point until a full program of activities has been accepted.
