The 2017 International Symposium on Musical Acoustics (ISMA) will be held at McGill University, Montreal, from 18 - 22 June 2017.

The 2017 ISMA will provide a focused, intimate forum with non-overlapping presentation and poster sessions on such topics as computer modelling of music instruments and the voice, experimental techniques for sound or instrument characterization, analysis and synthesis of sounds, visualisation and analysis of player-instrument interactions, music pedagogy, and human perception of music and sound. The event is being hosted by the Computational Acoustic Modeling Laboratory in the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, together with the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology, and is also co-sponsored by the Acoustical Society of America. Funding to support the symposium has been provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

The 2017 ISMA will take place just prior to the joint meeting of the Acoustical Society of America and the European Acoustics Association in Boston, MA from 25-29 June 2017. Bus transportation to the Boston meeting on 24 June at 9 AM will be offered at minimal cost (possibly even free) thanks to a financial contribution from the ASA.

Also, note that the Montreal Jazz Festival will begin on 28 June 2017!

All ISMA events, other than the banquet, will be held in the Wirth Music Building, 527 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, QC H3A 1E3.
