CIRMMT Student Symposium 2012 - List of Presenters

The CIRMMT Student Symposium takes place annually, on the day of our General Assembly. Students present their recent work in the form of oral presentations, poster presentations, demos or performances. Proposals are chosen by the Student Executive Committee in order to present a broad picture of CIRMMT research, from musical compositions to computational algorithms./Le symposium Etudiant du CIRMMT a lieu chaque année, le jour de l’Assemblée Générale. Les étudiants y présentent leurs travaux récents sous forme de présentations orales, posters, démonstrations et concerts. Les travaux présentés sont choisis par le Comité Exécutif Etudiant et visent à représenter la vaste étendue des recherches menées au CIRMMT, des compositions musicales aux algorithmes informatiques
