ATMM welcomes not only academics, professionals and students, but all those who have an interest in music, sound and media technologies.

The opening ceremony and keynote speech will take place on Wednesday, November 12, at 12:30 p.m. The keynote will be delivered by Pieter Snapper, founder of MIAM Studios and co-founder of Babajim Istanbul Studios & Mastering. As a mastering engineer, producer and composer of contemporary classical and electronic music, he has received many awards, including recognition from BMI, ASCAP, UC Berkeley and the Union League Foundation.

The conference program includes over 25 presentations, a workshop, a panel and a forum for start-ups on audio technologies with Beatografi, Cubic.fm, Easy Guitar, KV331 and Seshouse.

ATMM 2014 will also host presentations on Roland products such as AIRA, VR drums and the GR 55 guitar synthesizer, along with four different musical performances.
