      *** additional submission deadline extension***

      Due to a number of requests by individual authors for a further
      deadline extension, we have decided to grant an extension of
      the submission deadline for all the Evo* 2009 events to

      30 November 2008

      EvoMUSART 2009

      7th European Workshop on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music,
      Sound, Art and Design

      15-17 April, 2009, Tubingen, Germany



      EvoMUSART 2009 is the seventh workshop of the EvoNet working group on
      Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events
      and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART
      2009 is to bring together researchers who are using biologically
      inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to
      promote, present and discuss ongoing work in this area.

      The workshop will be held from 15-17 April, 2009 in Tubingen, Germany
      as part of the EvoStar event.

      Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included
      in the EvoWorkshops proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in the
      Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

      EvoMUSART 2009 important dates are:

      Submission deadline: November 30, 2008
      Conference: April 15-17, 2009

      To submit a paper you can directly access the page:

      or otherwise find all instructions and information about the
      EvoStar 2009 events at the page:


      The papers should concern the use of bio-inspired techniques -
      e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Artificial Neural
      Networks, Swarm Intelligence, etc. - in the scope of the generation,
      analysis and interpretation of art, music, design, architecture and
      other artistic fields. Topics of interest include, but are not
      limited to:

      - Generation
      o Biologically Inspired Design and Art-Systems that create
      drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, objects,
      designs, webpages, buildings, etc.;
      o Biologically Inspired Sound and Music - Systems that create
      music, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound
      analysis, etc.;
      o Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
      o Other related generative techniques;
      - Theory
      o Computational Aesthetics, Emotional Response, Surprise, Novelty;
      o Representation techniques;
      o Surveys of the state-of-the-art in the area; identification of
      weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and
      o Validation methodologies;
      o Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;
      o New models designed to promote the creative potential of
      biologically inspired computation;
      - Computer Aided Creativity
      o Systems in which biologically inspired computation is used to
      promote the creativity of a human user;
      o New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
      o Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biologically
      inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
      approaches; the resulting artifacts;
      o Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;
      - Automation
      o Techniques for automated fitness assignment;
      o Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks
      is used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to
      produce novel objects;
      o Systems that exploit biologically inspired computation to
      perform the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some
      other types of artistic object;


      Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS
      format no later than November 30, 2008. Formatting instructions
      available at:


      The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of
      the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the
      results of the review by January 9, 2008.

      The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the
      basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera
      ready version of their manuscripts, along with text sources and
      pictures, by January 28, 2009. The accepted papers will appear in the
      workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be
      available at the workshop.
