The International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (ICEM), or Bourges International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (IMEB, French: Institut international de musique électroacoustique de Bourges, also "Bourges International Institute of Electroacoustic Music"[1]), formerly Groupe de musique expérimentale de Bourges, is a music organization in support of electroacoustic music, including computer music.

The ICEM holds the International Electronic Music Festival and gives music awards for electroacoustic music during the Bourges International Electro-Acoustic Music Competition (also known as "Bourges Electroacoustic Music Competition"[1] and as the International Electro-Acoustic Music Competition in/at Bourges). It was founded in 1973, "to promote elecoacoustic composition," and began to include music software as a category in 1996.[1]
