The IRCAM FORUM WORKSHOPS are places where musical, scientific and technological innovations converge
Several PARTNERS are part of the organisation comitee
University of Chile
The University of Chile was founded on the 19th of November, 1842. It is the oldest higher education institution in Chile. Generating, developing, integrating and communicating knowledge in all the areas of knowledge and culture are the mission and basis of the activities of the University. This makes up the involvedness of their work and directs the education they impart.
Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) de la Universidad de Chile
For the past two decades, a tight-knit group of researchers from University of Chile’s Department of Mathematical Engineering, with a broad range of scientific interests and related backgrounds at PhD level, have been carrying out research in applied mathematics and collaborating on multidisciplinary projects. Over these years the group has generated new models, algorithms and software to improve the planning in forestry, energy and mining. The group also has a significant record of publications and extensive experience in training students at the doctoral and engineering level.
Facultad de Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas de la Universidad de Chile
The Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (FCFM, for its acronym in Spanish) has been in existence for over 170 years. It is focused on higher education and on the development of basic sciences, engineering sciences and technological applications. At present, it offers a Civil Engineering program with nine specializations, Geology, three bachelor of sciences and more than 30 postgraduate academic programs.Its background, results and commitment to excellence, places it amongst the best Chilean and worldwide Engineering and Science Faculties.

Vicerrectoría de Investigación y Desarrollo de la Universidad de Chile
The University of Chile is the main Chilean institution in scientific and technological research. It is responsible for a third of the scientific publications and also for the development of a high percentage of competitive research projects in most academic fields, including basic sciences, technologies, humanities, social sciences and arts.
The mission of the Vice-Presidency for Research and Development (VID) of the University of Chile is to foster research, innovation and artistic creation carried out in the academic units of the University to contribute to the scientific, technological, socio-economic and cultural development of the country.
Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile
The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile was founded on June 21, 1888 by Monsignor Mariano Casanova, Archbishop of Santiago. His goal was to create an institution capable of blending academic excellence and training based on the Christian doctrine.

Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral (GAM)
The Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral was inaugurated in September 2010 and is named after Gabriela Mistral. Today it’s a cultural centre devoted to disseminate and promote performing arts and music. Among many other activities, it offers contemporary drama and dance, as well as classic and popular music, a space to continuous development and experimentation. Furthermore, with an emphasis on contemporary photography and popular arts, the GAM houses a range for visual arts. Due to its high demands for transparency, variety and quality, it is orientated to generate direct encounters between artists and diverse audiences.
IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music, is one of the world’s largest public research centers dedicated to both musical expression and scientific research. A unique location where artistic sensibilities collide with scientific and technological innovation directed by Frank Madlener, bringing together over 160 people.
IRCAM’s three principal activities – creation, research, transmission – are visible in IRCAM’s Parisian concert season, in productions throughout France and abroad, in a new rendezvous created in June 2012, ManiFeste, that combines an international festival with a multidisciplinary academy.
Founded by Pierre Boulez, IRCAM, a non-profit making association with recognized public utility, is associated with the Centre Pompidou, under the aegis of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. IRCAM and the CNRS are associated in the framework of the STMS Joint Research lab (Sciences et technologies de la musique et du son – UMR 9912) and were joined by the Pierre et Marie Curie University (UPMC) in 2010.
This event is supported by the French Institute, the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, the Universidad de Chile, the CMM, the GAM, Foreign Ministry’s Directorate for Cultural Affairs of Chile and the National Council for Culture and the Arts of Chile.
