SMC 2018 in Cyprus

The 15th International Sound & Music Computing Conference
Dept. of Communication and Internet Studies
Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, Cyprus, 4-7
July 2018

Theme: Sonic Crossings
The main theme of the conference focuses on the ability of sound and music to cross boundaries, to eliminate borderlines and overcome physical and digital limitations. The theme also evokes the rich cultural landscape and soundscape of Cyprus, a country predominantly made up of Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities divided by a military border. Despite the political problems, Cyprus enjoys a dynamic and complex cultural and sonic unification not only through the resonances and overtones of these two strong ethnic communities but also through those of several other nationalities inhabiting the island.
