What is ISMIR

The annual ISMIR Conference is the first established international forum
for those involved in the tremendous growth of music-related contents
available digitally, locally or remotely, through networks.

This area presents vast challenges for those who need to organize and
structure, provide tools to search and retrieve, and use them
efficiently: music representation, when it exists, is
multi-dimensional and time-dependent; audio instantiations are
voluminous objects requiring particular care for storage and
transmission while preserving quality; descriptive information about
what is musically significant addresses a large spectrum of internal
and external characteristics, from acoustic to musicological ones;
intellectual property rights about what can be made available and how
are complex, involve a variety of individuals and organizations, and
vary from country to country.

All of these concerns are of interest to education, academia,
entertainment and industry. This conference thus aims at providing a
place for the exchange of news, issues and results, by bringing together
researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and
professional users, working in fields that may contribute significantly
to this multidisciplinary domain, by presenting original theoretical or
practical work in peer-reviewed contributions (papers, posters), serve
as a discussion forum (panels), provide in-depth information in specific
domains (tutorials), and show current products (exhibit).

The honorary chair of the conference is composer conductor Pierre Boulez
and the opening keynote speaker Douglas Hofstadter. Among the keynote and
guest speakers: Leonardo Chiariglione (Telecom Italia and MPEG), Dave
Data (All Media Guide), Harriette Hemmasi (Indiana University), Eric
Scheirer (Bose), Ted Tanner (Microsoft).

Detailed information about the conference and its organization including
registration is available on its Web site (http://ismir2002.ircam.fr/)
and will be regularly posted in the music-ir mailing list (information
on subscription available on the conference site).

ISMIR 2002 is held during IRCAM's "Resonances", the International
Convention on Music Technologies which comprises many other interesting
events (more information on http://resonances.ircam.fr/).
