SMC-22 (Sound and Music Computing) is a multifaceted event around acoustics, music, and audio technology. It took place in Saint-Étienne (France) on June 5-12, 2022 and it had the following theme: Music Technology and Design. As the first "in person" edition of SMC after 2 years of COVID-19 pandemic, we aimed 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 was a combination of a Summer School (June 5-7, 2022), the International Faust Conference (June 7, 2022), the SMC Scientific Conference, Industry-Oriented Events, a Festival (June 8-11, 2022), and a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) Fair - "Faites du son!" (June 9-12).
SMC-22 was organized by the ECLLA Lab at Université Jean Monnet of Saint-Étienne, the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA) and GRAME - Centre National de Création Musicale, in collaboration with various local partners.
