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/). ------- End of Forwarded Message
