    SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS WORKSHOP ON Evolutionary Music: EcMusic to be held as part of the 2012 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2012)
    Message 1 of 1 , Feb 13, 2012

         WORKSHOP ON Evolutionary Music:  EcMusic

                      to be held as part of the

       2012 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2012)
                     July 7-11, Philadelphia, PA, USA

                      Organized by ACM SIGEVO

       Submission Deadline for this workshop: March 28th, 2012

      New Orleans offered last year the perfect place to launch the first EcMusic Workshop,
      where research was shown, and EC-generated music was performed and listened to.
      This year Philly will be the place for the second edition of the workshop, which
      will be held in cooperation with GECCO 2012.

      Music provides a perfect area of research for Evolutionary Computation.
      A number of problems are present and still open to new
      proposals, such as:

       * Generative Music Composition.
       * Creative Intelligence applied to music.
       * Evolutionary Music Modeling.
       * Rhythmic structure and Key analysis.
       * Music Transcription.
       * Music Improvisation.
       * Music Genre classification.
       * Music mood analysis.
       * Optimization of Music Performance.
       * Sound synthesis.
       * Machine learning methods for audio content analysis .
       * Automatic tagging of audio signals.
       * Content-based audio retrieval.
       * Music information retrieval.
       * Music recommendation.
       * User interfaces for music management and retrieval.
       * Intelligent audio effects.
       * Audio restoration.
       * Etc.

      The workshop aims particularly at providing a place where the research
      is not only shown but also performed. Authors will thus be encouraged
      to send both regular papers describing new approaches and results,
      along with audio records allowing to appreciate the quality of the


      Please submit original research results papers not published or
      submitted for publication in other forums. All submitted papers will
      be carefully evaluated based on originality and quality.

      Paper should be a maximum of 8 pages and conform to the same
      ACM formatting requirements as for regular papers.
      Details and templates can be obtained at the GECCO website.
      Accepted Workshop papers will be published in the GECCO 2012 Companion Material,
      included with the proceedings on a CD, and also in the ACM Digital Library.
      Papers should be submitted as a single PDF file via email to fcofdez@...
