SMC-22 (Sound and Music Computing) is a multifaceted event around acoustics, music, and audio technology. It will take place in Saint-Étienne (France) on June 4-12, 2022 and will have the following theme: Music Technology and Design. As the first "in person" edition of SMC after 2 years of COVID-19 pandemic, we aim at widening the public of this event by (i) broadening the scope of SMC concerts through a digital art festival opened to the public, (ii) involving local schools and publics, and (iii) strengthening connections between academia and the industry.
SMC-22 will be a combination of a Summer School (June 4-7, 2022), the International Faust Conference (June 7-8, 2022), the SMC Scientific Conference, Industry Pannels, and Festival (June 8-11, 2022), and a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) Fair (June 9-12).
SMC-22 is organized by GRAME - Centre National de Création Musicale, the ECLLA Lab at Université Jean Monnet of Saint-Étienne, and ARCAN in collaboration with various local partners such as the city and the métropole of Saint-Étienne.
