We are now inviting papers for oral and poster/demo presentations. We are accepting submissions examining all the core topics of the Sound and Music Computing field, and in particular matching this year's topic of Sonic Crossings. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. We are also welcoming music submissions.

All accepted papers, independently of the presentation format, will be included in the conference Proceedings. The Proceedings will have a ISBN and will be distributed both as a printed and an electronic publication. The electronic version will be available on the SMC website (smcnetwork.org) Please note that at least one of the paper authors has to register to the conference in order for the paper to be accepted, presented, and included in the Proceedings



Papers should be between 4 and 8 pages long. All submissions will be fully peer-reviewed. Papers can be submitted as oral or poster/demo, but the final decision on the category will be made by the Programme Committee.
For a paper to be considered for review and possible publication at the SMC2018 conference at least 1 co-author must serve as a reviewer in the evaluation process of other conference submissions.
