As a result, CICTEM 2019 aims to encourage the exhibition and publication of works that reflect the application of the power of computers to music, especially to algorithmic composition and electroacoustic music.



The Departamento de Artes Musicales 'Carlos Lopez Buchardo' (Damus) is the heir of the former institution National Conservatory of Music in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Damus is part of the Universidad Nacional de las Artes (UNA).


Research activities related to Computer Music at Damus are centralized in the Centro de Investigaciones y Desarrollos Computacionales en Música 'Francisco Kröpfl' (CIDCOM), an institution created in 2009 that belongs to Damus.
