Acoustical Society of America (ASA) - Founded in 1929, nearly 7000 men and women who work in acoustics throughout the U.S. and abroad belong to the Society. A variety of fields related to sound are represented. Publishes The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.

Audio Engineering Society (AES) - The Audio Engineering Society, now in its fifth decade, is a professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. The AES stimulates and facilitates advances in the constantly changing field of audio. It encourages and disseminates new developments through annual technical meetings and exhibitions of professional equipment, and through the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society. The British Section is the largest outside of the US.

European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) - Aims to further research and teaching in the cognitive sciences of music; to increase and diffuse knowledge of music perception and cognition and to promote its practical applications, and to encourage European and international communication and cooperation within the field of the cognitive sciences of music. Publishes the journal Musicae Scientae.

Institute of Acoustics - The United Kingdom Institute of Acoustics was formed in 1974 through the amalgamation of the Acoustics Group of the Institute of Physics and the British Acoustical Society. The Institute has representation in many major research, educational, planning and industrial establishments covering all aspects of acoustics including aerodynamic noise, environmental, industrial and architectural acoustics, audiology, building acoustics, hearing, electroacoustics, infrasonics, ultrasonics, noise, physical acoustics, speech, transportation noise, underwater acoustics and vibration.

IEE Signal Processing Professional Network - A Professonal Network of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), the Network will provide a focus for the theoretical development and application of signal processing algorithms and techniques.

IEEE Signal Processing Society - The Society's areas of interest are the theory and application of filtering, coding, transmitting, estimating, detecting, analyzing, recognizing, synthesizing, recording, and reproducing signals by digital or analog devices or techniques. The term signal includes audio, video, speech, image, communication, geophysical, sonar, radar, medical, musical, and other signals.

International Computer Music Association - An international affiliation of individuals and institutions involved in the technical, creative, and performance aspects of computer music. A sponsor of the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC).

MusicAlly Ltd - a London-based digital music consultancy. They have been publishing reports on the digital music arena since 2001 and provide advice to all the major record labels and publishers, many big mobile operators, handset manufacturers, online music services, technologists, copy protection firms and the like. Main areas of expertise are wireless distribution and legal music services such as iTunes and Napster, but studies also include subjects such as codecs, digital rights management, and audio fingerprinting. - a collection of data, gathered for the music dsp community.

SEMPRE: Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research - Originally known as the 'Society for Research in Psychology of Music and Music Education' ('SRPMME'), SEMPRE remains to this day the only society which embraces research in both music education and music psychology, providing an international forum to encourage the exchange of ideas and to disseminate research findings. The Society is particularly keen to encourage the participation of those at the start of their research career and to maintain a broad membership that reflects the considerable range of interests that are represented within music education and the psychology of music.

Sonic Arts Network - An events, education and information resource with members worldwide. It aims to raise awareness and innovate new approaches to sonic art by providing information and opportunity across the UK. Publishes the SAN Journal of Electroacoustic Music.
