Originally concentrating on automatic processing of musical data, the focus area has widened to include the many different kinds of music-specific computing such as digitalization of musical heritage (both notation and musical audio), digital editing, advanced searching and access to online materials, computational modeling of music, automatic analysis, interactive environments for music research and general issues of data-richness and technology adoption.

Two meetings are scheduled for 2015:
The IMS Study Group on Digital Musicology met at the IAML/IMS joint conference “Music Research in the Digital Age,” held in New York on 21st June, 2015.
A second meeting is scheduled to take place during ISMIR in Málaga, Spain, 26th-30th October 2015.
16th Conference of the ISMIR, 26th-30th October 2015
The annual Conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) is the world's leading research forum on processing, analyzing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data. Music becomes music after being processed by the human mind and each person perceives the music in a different and complex way. Therefore, this conference embraces the complexity and diversity of music by showcasing ideas and applications that aim to enhance the way in which we interact with music.
MIR is a truly interdisciplinary area, involving researchers, developers, educators, librarians, students and professionals from the disciplines of musicology, cognitive science, library and information science, computer science, electrical engineering and many others. Therefore, like previous ISMIR editions, ISMIR 2015 will provide a venue for the exchange of ideas, issues, results and perspectives among the different profiles of people working with music and computing in a broad sense. ISMIR 2015 will cover the entire area of MIR, providing ample room for diversity and new developments ISMIR 2015 will feature a great Scientific Program that includes:
- Introductory and in-depth tutorials. http://ismir2015.uma.es/callfortutorials.html (Tutorial proposal deadline March 27, 2015)
- Oral and poster presentation of research papers. http://ismir2015.uma.es/callforpapers.html (Paper submission deadline April 27, 2015)
- Music program. http://ismir2015.uma.es/callformusic.html (Music submission deadline May 27, 2015)

In 2014, the Study Group organised a meeting, which took place during the International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference (ISMIR) in Taipei, Taiwan, on 27th-31st October 2014. http://www.terasoft.com.tw/conf/ismir2014/
One of the activities on the last day was an Unconference Session, consisting of informal meetings on various topics. On behalf of the Study Group on Digital Musicology a 20-minute session was organised entitled “Digital Musicology and Music Information Retrieval,” which was immediately followed by a session entitled “Big Data for Music Analysis and Musicology.” Around 30 people attended both sessions.
