Bring your lunch and come enjoy our next Brown Bag Series event on Friday, March 30, 2012. The Brown Bag Series lets us take the opportunity to engage in presentations and performances addressing a wide array of topics related to the many arts in our lives.
The Music, Mind, and Invention Workshop will take place March 30 and 31, 2012 at The College of New Jersey. Its purpose will be to explore the rich interconnections between music, cognition, computation, and creativity, addressing themes such as: creativity across disciplines, ways of thinking about music, and music as a medium for improvement. The workshop will feature a keynote address by Marvin Minsky, invited talks by Noam Elkies, Tod Machover, and Dmitri Tymoczko, panel discussions, and presentations of peer-reviewed papers and creative work. Submissions that present novel theories, late-breaking results, and new ways of addressing unresolved questions are welcome. Special efforts will be made to recruit submissions and reviewers from a broad range of disciplines. The workshop will be open to the public.
