WORKSHOP ON MACHINE LEARNING AND MUSIC
ECML/PKDD-09 EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON MACHINE LEARNING AND PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY IN DATABASES
7 - 11 SEPTEMBER 2009
CALL FOR PAPERS
This conference is taking place on September 7, 2009, as part of ECML/PKDD-09, European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases
Research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity due to the rapid expansion of music in audio formats, increasing availability of social music tagging data, and the ongoing musicological interest in mining of symbolic music data. As complexity of the problems investigated by researchers on this area increases, there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods to solve these problems. Machine learning has proved to provide efficient solutions to many music-related problems. The goal of MML 2008 is to bring together researchers who are using machine learning in musical applications, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area. The workshop is planned to last one full day, and will feature paper presentations, panel discussions and open discussions.
We invite contributions describing machine learning approaches to music processing including, but not limited to:
Sound synthesis and analysis
Pattern discovery in music
Folk song analysis and classification
Music genre classification
Music Information Retrieval
Knowledge Representation and Computational Models
Psychoacoustics and Music Perception
Adaptive Systems and Music Education
Interactive Performance Systems
Digital Audio Signal Processing
Papers of 4-6 printed pages must be in English and must be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence guidelines. Authors instructions and style files can be found in the workshop webpage. Papers should include author names, affiliations, contact information, and an abstract of 70-120 words. Papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the Workshop Committee. Contributions should be in PDF format and submitted to the workshop email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission deadline: June 14, 2009.
Acceptance notification: June 30, 2009.
Final versions due: July 8, 2009.
Workshop: September 7, 2009.
