Aristotle University of Thessaloniki - Computational and Cognitive Musicology Group
The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (founded in 1925) is the largest university in Greece. It covers a wide range of academic subjects in science, technology, humanities, arts, medicine. Research is strong in many disciplines, especially in the engineering and computing domains. AUTH was ranked among the top research universities in Greece.
The Department of Music Studies at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is the first musicological academic institution in Greece. The department, not only has a strong profile in standard musical/musicological/compositional studies but, moreover, it actively supports research in innovative interdisciplinary music-related fields. The Computational and Cognitive Musicology (CCM) Group at the Dept of Music Studies focuses on the systematic analysis and description of music processes and phenomena, primarily via the development of computational models. Five members of academic staff at the department are members of the CCM group and are currently actively engaged in research in this area. Additionally, the group has strong links with other academic groups at AUTH (for the current project, the SPBTU, Signal processing and Biomedical Technology Unit, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering) and at other Universities in Greece (for this project, Christina Anagnostopoulou at the Dept of Music Studies, University of Athens).
