      EvoMUSART 2015

      4th International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
      Music, Sound, Art and Design

      April 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark
      Part of evo* 2015
      evo*: http://www.evostar.org

      Selected authors will be invited to present their visual works on a special
      section in the LEONARDO Galery (http://www.leonardo.info/gallery/).


      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 2015 is the
      fourth 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 2015 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, 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark,
      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 2014 was 26.7% for papers accepted for oral
      presentation, or 36.7% for oral and poster presentation combined.

      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 service.

      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.
