Distinguished Lectures

The CIRMMT Distinguished Lectures in the Science and Technology of Music are designed to bring researchers and artists of international renown in the disciplines covered by CIRMMT to present their work to the general public, as well as to meet with CIRMMT researchers and students.

There are six to eight lectures per year, each followed by an open discussion period. Members of the CIRMMT community are invited to suggest future distinguished lecturers spanning the Centre’s six major research axes, and are encouraged to organize activities with our distinguished guests during their visits to Montreal.  The complete list of 2014-2015 Distinguished Lectures is listed below.
