taking place on September 7, 2009, as part of

ECML/PKDD-09, European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles
and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases

September 7-11, 2009, Bled (Slovenia)


Research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity
due to the rapid expansion of music in audio formats, increasing
availability of social music tagging data, and the ongoing musicological
interest in mining of symbolic music data.  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. 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.

We invite contributions describing machine learning approaches to music
processing including, but not limited to:

Sound synthesis and analysis
Pattern discovery in music
Computational musicology
Folk song analysis and classification
Music genre classification
Music analysis
Music Information Retrieval
Knowledge Representation and Computational Models
Psychoacoustics and Music Perception
Cognitive Modeling
Adaptive Systems and Music Education
Algorithmic Composition
Interactive Performance Systems
Digital Audio Signal Processing


Papers of 4-6 printed pages must be in English and must be formatted
according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
guidelines. Authors instructions and style files can be found in the
workshop webpage. Papers 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
