At the 2012 AAWM conference we presented a way to explore tone scales in the music of Central Africa. Since the audience consisted of (ethno)musicologists, the main focus of the presentation was on the applicication part, the technical aspects were only briefly mentioned.
The extended abstract can be consulted: Towards the tangible: microtonal scale exploration in Central-African music
The conference program itself was very diverse and interesting.
