Research Axis 1: Instruments, devices and systems

This theme focuses on the development of engineering and mathematical tools for the study of sound and music, encompassing the study of instrument and room acoustics, digital signal processing, digital musical instruments, and devices, as well as software development for interactive music and computer-aided composition. Research involves areas such as computational acoustic modeling, virtual acoustics, immersive systems, intelligent sensors and sensor fusion adaptive instruments/interfaces and hearing aid systems, as well as on the historical, cultural and philosophical study of sound technology.
