The organizers of MCM 2019 encourage submissions of unpublished papers that use mathematical and/or computational approaches to music theory, music analysis, composition, performance, by researchers or teams of researchers from any relevant field.
Particularly, we welcome submissions on any topic relating to mathematics and/or computation in music, including (but not limited to):
 Mathematical and computational models of and/or approaches to logical, philosophical and methodological aspects of mathematics and computation in music
 Musicology, music theory, analysis
 Composition and performance, improvisation
 The perception and cognition of any aspect of musical structure
 Music and emotion
 Educational aspects and implementation of Mathematical Music Theory
 Musical interaction and gestures
 The history of mathematics and computation in music
 Applications of mathematical music theory and computational tools for musicians, musicologists and others who work with music
 Study of mathematical objects derived from mathematical music theory.
We invite submissions of the following types:
 Long papers (1012 pages in the Springer LNCS style) to be presented orally
 Short papers (46 pages in the Springer LNCS style) to be presented as posters
 Panel discussions
General proceeding for paper submission
Paper submission must be made to any of the following organizers in pdf format files.
 Paco Gómez: fmartin(at)etsisi(dot)upm(dot)es
 Mariana Montiel: mmontiel(at)gsu(dot)edu
 Octavio A. AgustínAquino: octavioalberto(at)mixteco(dot)utm(dot)mx
IMPORTANT: MCM 19 will carry out a blind peerreview of the papers submitted. Authors have to send two versions of their papers:
 The full version including all author names and affiliations. The name's file should contain the name of the main author. For example, TITLEAUTHOR
 A blinded manuscript without any author's names and affiliations in the text or on the title page. Selfidentifying citations, references, acknowledgments as well as funding sources in the manuscript should either be avoided or left blank. In this case, it should contain the word ANONYMOUS as a sufix. For example, TITLEAUTHORANONYMOUS. When the scientific committee distributes the papers among the reviewers the relevant information will removed to preserve anonymity.
The manuscript will be reviewed by two reviewers.
More information for authors about the LNCS series where the proceedings will published in may be found in
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=016467933410
including formatting guidelines. Submissions must be made using one of the Springer LNCS style templates. Authors are strongly encouraged to prepare their submissions using the LNCS LaTeX style (see also this sample file). However, if authors are unable to use LaTeX, then they may submit it in LibreOffice/OpenOffice.odt format, but must have the same layout as obtained with TeX. Submissions that do not conform to one of these templates will be rejected without review.
All papers will be reviewed according to their novelty or expository quality, scientific quality, relevance to the conference and stimulation potential. Submissions of long and short papers must follow the following guidelines:
 use the LNCS templates;
 respect the page restrictions for long and short papers.
Poster size can be A0 or 70 cm x 100 cm, printed on photographic paper, and should be installed by the author.
There will be no extension to the paper submission deadline of JANUARY 15th, 2019.
Notification acceptance: MARCH 5th, 2019
Long and short papers
Long and short paper submissions should take the form of complete papers; each paper submission should include an abstract of up to 150 words. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in an edited volume in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science, as were the proceedings of previous MCM conferences. These memoirs will be published before the conference.
