Sound and Music Computing 2012 in Copenhagen

As a technical program chair, I am happy to announce the first call for papers and works for the 9th Sound and Music Computing Conference, 12-14 July 2012 Medialogy section,  Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, Aalborg University Copenhagen (And, of course, I especially encourage the submission of work that uses principles of sparsity :)
The SMC Conference is the forum for international exchanges around the core interdisciplinary topics of Sound and Music Computing, and features workshops, lectures, posters, demos, concerts, sound installations, and satellite events. The SMC Summer School, which takes place just before the conference, aims at giving young researchers the opportunity to interactively learn about core topics in this interdisciplinary field from experts, and to build a network of international contacts. The specific theme of SMC 2012 is “Illusions”, and that of the SMC Summer School is “Multimodality”.
