Call for Papers

SBCM is a biannual event organized by the Computer Music Interest Group (CECM) of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC). It is an exciting and thriving venue for sharing ideas about recent developments in computer music, sound and music processing, music information retrieval, computational musicology, multimedia performance, and many other topics related to art, science, and technology. In 2023, the 19th SBCM will be hosted by the Pontifical Catholic University of Paran√° (PUC-PR) and will be a fully online event at affordable prices to welcome a broad music technology audience. We aim to achieve a more extensive diversity of themes, aesthetic trends, markets, and communities.

The organising committee welcomes the following contributions formats:

  • Technical Papers, expected to present original research work, deal with research and outcomes involving subjects related to computer music’s broad territory. Full technical papers will be presented at the scientific track. At least one of the authors must register for the conference. They can have up to 8 pages and must be written in English. Technical Paper reviews will be double-blind.
  • Music Papers, centred on artistic and musical activities related to the conference theme, discussing artistic/creative processes description, aesthetics on digital music, computational musicology, or practice-based research approaches. These will be presented at the scientific track, and at least one of the authors must register for the conference. They can have up to 8 pages, must be written in English, and reviews will be double-blind
  • Short Papers can present either original or ongoing research, with a technical or musical focus within computer music topics. Short papers will be presented at the ENCM track, can have up to 4 pages, and can be written either in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Reviews will be single-blind.
  • Reports for research groups, art collectives, studio practice presenting the artistic and research activity in a laboratory, project, research team, art collective, art groups, and/or any other kind of group work developed at Universities, communities, and Research Centers focused on computers and music. These will be presented at the ENCM event and can be either in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. These will be evaluated by the organising committee.

All the submitted works will be published in the SBCM proceedings and in the SBC Open Library.
