Under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society the Fourth Diderot Mathematical Forum, dedicated to “Mathematics and Music”, took place simultaneously in Lisbon, Paris and Vienna, in December 3-4,1999. Since this seminal event, an international Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music and a peer-review Journal of Mathematics and Music has emerged, contributing to the progressive recognition of Mathematics and Music as a discipline in its own right. In 2015, another important milestone was achieved in the form of the international workshop Mathemusical Conversations: mathematics and computation in performance and composition co-hosted by the Institute for Mathematical Sciences and the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore. Mathemusical Encounters in Singapore : a Diderot Legacy marks the 25th anniversary of the original Mathematics and Music Diderot forum. It is an occasion to recognise the continued growth of mathematics and music and its foundational role in broader mathemusical applications ranging from music technologies to performance creativity to digital therapeutics, and to lay the groundwork for future directions in the interdisciplinary research field of Mathematics and Music.
