  • Parallel computing theory in music/audio computing; algorithms, requirements.
  • Musical interactivity tools including digitizing tablets, multitouch and manytouch surfaces.
  • New user-interfaces for interaction with expressive musical/auditory environments, e.g. spatial mapping with dimensionality reduction.
  • Theoretical and applied spatial acoustics of loudspeaker and microphone arrays, especially in spherical configurations
  • Musical quality; metrics, augmentation, compression, hearing loss.
  • Signal-theory for musical gestures; requirements on jitter and latency, expressive bandwidth estimation
  • Semantics, requirements and cognitive models of music performance and their implications for software design patterns
  • Sound analysis for event detection, pitch and noise estimation and auditory perceptual models
