Computational Research on Music & Audio (CRoMA) was launched at Lincoln University in 2015 with the support of the National Science Foundation through an HBCU-UP award. The purpose of this project is to establish a research program to study aspects and applications of computational audio signal processing. This effort has an interdisciplinary focus, drawing from disciplines such as computer science, engineering, mathematics, psychology, and music. Further, the project aims to specifically include undergraduate students in the research activities. In year one, the project has: a) directly supported four undergraduate students as research assistants; b) supported summer research for the PI at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Music, Media & Technology (CIRMMT, housed at McGill University), leading to new research collaborations and focus; c) enabled presentation of work by students and the PI at regional and international conferences; d) spurred development of a new course that enhances the computer science curriculum and prepares undergraduate students for this research; and e) supported a one-day symposium on CRoMA, bringing together faculty and students from multiple institutions and providing an opportunity for undergraduates to present their research.
