The International Society for Information Studies (ISIS) holds an international conference «ISIS Summit Vienna 2015» (Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, June 3-7, 2015). All information about this event is given at websites http://summit.is4is.org/about and http://summit.is4is.org/calls/call-for-participation.

The Moscow P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory - in co-operation with the International Symmetry Association - organizes a special session «Music, Information and Symmetry» in the frame of this Conference.

The aim of the Section is to bring together musicians, musicologists, computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists and other specialists to develop theoretical and practical tasks in the field of musical culture using achievements of information sciences and theory of symmetry. One of the main tasks of the section will be a discussion of the role of contemporary music as reflection to the dangers and hopes of our times, and  how we can influence social progress by means of music. Methods and achievements of computer sciences and symmetrology give many new approaches and opportunities to enhance social and cultural influences of music including the field of musical therapy. These new possibilities together with historical data from the field of musical culture should be considered in the session.
