ISMIR 2013 Call for Participation

14th International Society for Music Information Retrieval
Conference http://ismir2013.ismir.net/ismir2013 4th - 8th of
November 2013 Curitiba, Brazil (organized by PUCPR)

The annual Conference of the International Society for Music
Information Retrieval (ISMIR) is the world's leading research
forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing
music-related data.The revolution in music distribution and
storage brought about by digital technology has fueled tremendous
research activities and interests in academia as well as in
industry. The ISMIR Conference reflects this rapid development by
providing a meeting place for the discussion of MIR-related
research, developments, methods, tools and experimental results.
Its main goal is to foster multidisciplinary exchange by bringing
together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, as
well as students and professional users.

ISMIR 2013 will feature:
*         introductory and in-depth tutorials
*         oral and poster presentations of research papers
*         invited talks reflecting the true interdisciplinary
          nature of MIR research
*         a late-break/demo session
*         a music programme.

-----PAPERS----- ISMIR 2013 welcomes paper submissions for oral
or poster presentation in the (non-exclusive) areas of:

*       content-based querying and retrieval
*       database systems, indexing and query
*       fingerprinting and digital rights management
*       music transcription and annotation
*       music signal processing
*       sound source separation in music signals
*       score following, audio alignment and music
*       optical music recognition
*       melody and motives
*       rhythm, beat, tempo and form
*       harmony, chords and tonality
*       timbre, instrumentation and voice
*       performance analysis
*       modification and transformation of music data
*       computational musicology
*       music perception and cognition
*       emotion and aesthetics
*       applications of MIR to the performing arts and multimedia
*       automatic classification
*       genre, style and mood analysis
*       similarity metrics
*       music summarization

*       methodological and philosophical issues
*       social, legal, ethical and business issues
*       applications to traditional/folk/ethnic music

To ensure a high quality of the contributions, all papers will go
through a double-blind selection process with at least three
reviewers per submission. Paper submissions must be no more than
6 pages long when formatted with the conference template, and in
PDF. Accepted papers will be designated by the Program Committee
to be presented either as posters or as lectures. All accepted
papers have the same status, assignment as poster or lecture is
not indicative of the relevance or potential impact but on the
type of content and way to better reach the intended audience.

More details on

-----TUTORIALS----- The first day of ISMIR 2013 will consist of
parallel sessions of tutorials, each lasting three hours and
concentrating on a single topic. The tutorials are intended to
provide a stimulating coverage of that topic appealing to a
general audience.

More details on

-----LATE-BREAK/DEMOS----- As in previous years, ISMIR 2013 will
also include a special track for demos and late-breaking news,
with a later deadline than the main paper/poster track. Demos
consist of live, hands-on presentations of working software which
incorporate MIR algorithms or are relevant to MIR research.
Late-breaking news is quite the opposite: unpolished,
not-quite-understood-yet puzzles and findings that may barely
hold together, but are guaranteed to foster debate and
discussion. Both are things better interacted with than lectured
about. While recent years have seen a majority of submissions in
the demo category, we will endeavor to reach a better balance of
both types of submissions this year. In particular, we envision
to differentiate the presentation format for demos and
late-breaking news - the former, in the walk-around exhibition
style that has been successful at previous ISMIRs; the latter, in
a more participative, un-conference style. Details will be posted
at a later date.

Both types of submissions will consist of extended abstracts of
1-2 pages, which will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind manner
by members of the programme committee like the submissions for
the main paper track. In the case of demo submissions, abstracts
should describe what the typical user scenario will be as well as
the technical requirements for the presentation. In the case of
late-breaking news, abstracts should make the case of why the
result is inspirational and topical for the MIR community.

-----VENUE----- Curitiba is the largest and one of the most
important cities of Southern Brazil, being a cultural, political
and economic center. Its population is approximately 1,8 million
and its metropolitan area comprises 26 municipalities with a
total population of over 3,2 million. The city is on a plateau
932 m (3107 ft) above the sea level. People from Curitiba are
known as Curitibanos.

One theory about the name "Curitiba" comes from the Tupi words
kurí tyba, "much pine," due to the large number of Brazilian Pine
Trees? (Araucaria angustifolia), in the region prior to its
foundation. Today, Curitiba is considered one of the best
examples of urban planning world-wide.

The conference will take place in the Bourbon Curitiba Convention
Hotel. The hotel is located in the downtown area with easy access
to major sights and it is just 22km from the Afonso Pena airport.
It is the most traditional hotel in Curitiba. It has been awarded
14 consecutive times as the Top of Mind and has at its restaurant
the Best Feijoada of Curitiba according to some national
magazines such as Veja, and Gula.
