We are happy to announce that Music, Communication & Technology will be the very first joint degree between NTNU and UiO, the two biggest universities in Norway. The programme is now approved by the UiO board and will soon be approved by the NTNU board.
We are happy to announce that the Research Council of Norway has awarded funding for a new Centre of Excellence. The centre will be named RITMO - Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion and is a collaboration between Departments of Musicology, Psychology and Informatics.
After a whole day of competitions, we have a winner in this year's edition of the Norwegian Championship of Standstill.
A Doctoral Research Fellowship is available in the fourMs group.
The 22nd International Congress on Acousitcs (ICA 2016) will be held September 5-9th, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Minho Song’s paper “Hidden melody in music playing motion: Music recording using optical motion tracking system” was selected for the oral presentation in the Musical Acoustics session.
Researchers from fourMs are involved in three papers at NIME in Brisbane, Australia.
The 25th annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting (CNS 2016) will be held July 2-7th, Jeju Island, South Korea. Minho Song will present a poster about Sufficient sampling frequencies for fast hand motion tracking.
