International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation


The International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation is dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in Music Notation and Representation, with a strong focus on computer tools and applications, as well as a tight connection to music creation. "Technology" in the conference name refers to any mean that may contribute to the notation, representation and/or visualisation of the music and sound, for purposes that may include (but not limited to) music composition, performance, representation, transcription, analysis and pedagogy.
The first edition of the conference - TENOR 2015 - has been held in Paris in May 2015. It was initiated as the final outcome of a working group entitled The new Spaces of Music Notation.
