Call for Papers

MML 2013: 6th International Workshop on Machine Learning and Music

Held in Conjunction with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge
Discovery in Databases (ECML/PKDD 2013)
September 23, 2013
Prague, Czech Republic

News: MML13 authors are invited to submit an extended version of their MML contributions for publication in the Music and Machine Learning Special Issue of the Journal of New Music Research - submission deadline July 1 2013

With the current explosion and quick expansion of music in digital formats, and the computational power of modern systems, research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity. As complexity of the problems investigated by researchers on machine learning and music increases, there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods to solve these problems. The focus of this workshop is on novel methods which take into account or benefit from musical structure. MML 2013 aims to build on the previous five successful MML editions, MML’08, MML’09, MML'10MML’11 and MML'12.

Papers in all applications on music and machine learning are welcome, including but not limited to 
  • automatic classification of music (audio and MIDI) 
  • style-based interpreter recognition
  • automatic composition and improvisation
  • music recommender systems, genre and tag prediction
  • score alignment
  • polyphonic pitch detection
  • chord extraction
  • pattern discovery
  • beat tracking
  • expressive performance modeling
