      3rd International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
      Music, Sound, Art and Design

      April 2014, Baetha, Andalusia, Spain
      Part of evo* 2014
      evo*: http://www.evostar.org
      New this year: Special track on Artificial Neural Network applied to Music,
      Sound, Art and Design

      Following the success of previous events and the importance of the
      field of evolutionary and biologically inspired (artificial neural network,
      swarm, alife) music, sound, art and design, evomusart has become an evo*
      conference with independent proceedings since 2012. Thus, evomusart 2014 is the
      twelfth European Event and the third International Conference on Evolutionary
      and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design.

      The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of
      artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of
      research. There is a growing interest in the application of these
      techniques in fields such as: visual art and music generation,
      analysis, and interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video;
      poetry; design; and other creative tasks.

      The main goal of evomusart 2014 is to bring together researchers who
      are using biologically inspired computer techniques for artistic
      tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss
      ongoing work in the area.

      The event will be held in April, 2014 in Baetha, Andalusia, Spain, as
      part of the evo* event.

      Publication Details

      Submissions will be rigorously reviewed for scientific and artistic
      merit. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters at the
      event and included in the evomusart proceedings, published by Springer
      Verlag in a dedicated volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
      series. The acceptance rate at evomusart 2013 was 30.5% for papers
      accepted for oral presentation, or 44.4% for oral and poster
      presentation combined. The evomusart 2013 submissions received on
      average 3.4 reviews each.

      New this year: submitters are strongly encouraged to provide in all
      papers a link for download of media demonstrating their results,
      whether music, images, video, or other media types. Links should be
      anonymised for double-blind review, e.g. using a URL shortening

      Topics of interest

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

      -- Generation
      - Biologically Inspired Design and Art -- Systems that create
      drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs,
      webpages, buildings, etc.;
      - Biologically Inspired Sound and Music -- Systems that create
      musical pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound
      analysis, etc.;
      - Robotic-Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
      - Other related artificial intelligence or generative techniques in
      the fields of Computer Music, Computer Art, etc.;

      -- Theory
      - Computational Aesthetics, Experimental Aesthetics; Emotional
      Response, Surprise, Novelty;
      - Representation techniques;
      - Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
      of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;
      - Validation methodologies;
      - Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;
      - New models designed to promote the creative potential of
      biologically inspired computation;

      -- Computer Aided Creativity and computational creativity
      - Systems in which biologically inspired computation is used to
      promote the creativity of a human user;
      - New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
      - Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biologically
      inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
      approaches; the resulting artefacts;
      - Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;

      -- Automation
      - Techniques for automatic fitness assignment;
      - Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
      used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to produce
      novel objects;
      - Systems that resort to biologically inspired computation to perform
      the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types of
      artistic object.
