The International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation is dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in Music Notation and Representation, with a strong focus on computer tools and applications, as well as a tight connection to music creation. “Technology” in the conference name refers to any mean that may contribute to the notation, representation and/or visualisation of the music and sound, for purposes that may include (but are not limited to) music composition, performance, representation, transcription, analysis and pedagogy.
The first edition of the conference – TENOR 2015 – was been held in Paris in May 2015, as the final outcome of a working group entitled The new Spaces of Music Notation. The other editions were held in Cambrigde (2016)A Coruña (2017)Montreal (2018)  and Melbourne (2019).
