Call for papers
MML 2008: International Workshop on Machine Learning and Music
Helsinki, Finland, July 9, 2008
ICML 2008 <http://icml2008.cs.helsinki.fi/>,
COLT 2008 <http://colt2008.cs.helsinki.fi/> and
UAI 2008 <http://uai2008.cs.helsinki.fi/>
With the current explosion and quick expansion of music in digital formats,
research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity. As
complexity of the problems investigated by researchers on this area increases,
there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods to solve these problems.
Machine learning has proved to provide efficient solutions to many
music-related problems both of academic and commercial interest. The goal of
MML 2008 is to bring together researchers who are using machine learning in
musical applications, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss
ongoing work in the area. The workshop is planned to last one full day, and
will feature paper presentations, panel discussions and open discussions.
Accepted contributions will be available from the workshop web page as soon as
possible in order to encourage
active discussion during the workshop.
We invite extended abstract contributions describing machine learning
approaches to music processing including, but not limited to:
* Sound Synthesis and Analysis
* Music Classification and Generation
* Formal Music Analysis
* Music Information Retrieval
* Knowledge Representation and Computational Models
* Printing and Optical Recognition of Music
* Psychoacoustics and Music Perception
* Cognitive Modeling
* Aesthetics, Philosophy and Criticism of Music
* Adaptive Systems and Music Education
* Algorithmic Composition
* Interactive Performance Systems
* Digital Audio Signal Processing
* Software and Hardware Systems
Extended abstracts of 1-2 printed pages in two-column ICML format are welcome.
Extended abstracts should include author names, affiliations, contact
information, and an abstract of 70-120 words. Papers will be reviewed by at
least two members of the Workshop Committee. Contributions should be in PDF
format and submitted to the workshop email address mml@xxxxxxxxxxxx
Submission deadline: Sunday, April 20, 2008.
Acceptance notification: Friday, May 16, 2008.
Final versions due: Friday, May 30, 2008.
Workshop: Wednesday, July 9, 2008.
