Workshop on Musical Metacreation (MUME2012) - Call for Participation

    CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
    ======================
    ((( MUME 2012 )))
    1st International Workshop on Musical Metacreation
    Held at the Eighth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and
    Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE'12)
    Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA
    October 9, 2012
    ----------------------
    Deadline for Paper and Demo Submissions:
    *** July 6, 2012 ***
    ======================
    We are delighted to announce the 1st International Workshop on Musical Metacreation (MUME2012) to be held October 9, 2012, in conjunction with the Eighth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE'12).
    Thanks to continued progress in artistic and scientific research, a new possibility is emerging in our musical relationship with technology: Generative Music or Musical Metacreation, the design and use of computer music systems which are "creative on their own". Metacreation involves using tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and life sciences. Musical Metacreation suggests exciting new opportunities to enter creative music making: discovery and exploration of novel musical styles and content, collaboration between human performers and creative software "partners", and design of systems in gaming and entertainment that dynamically generate or modify music.
    The workshop will bring together artists, practitioners and researchers interested in developing software and systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, complete, accompany, compose or interpret music. In particular, emphasis will be put on systems with real-time aspects, since these are relevant to both art and entertainment communities.
    Topics
    ======
    We encourage paper and demo submissions on topics including the following:
    * Novel representations of musical information
    * Systems for autonomous or interactive music composition
    * Systems for automatic generation of expressive musical interpretation
    * Systems for learning or modelling music style and structure
    * Systems for intelligently remixing or recombining musical material
    * Advances or applications of AI, machine learning, and statistical techniques for musical purposes
    * Advances or applications of evolutionary computing or agent and multiagent-based systems for musical purposes
    * Computational models of human musical creativity
    * Techniques and systems for supporting human musical creativity
    * Online musical systems (i.e. systems with a real-time element)
    * Adaptive music in video games
    * Methodologies for, and studies reporting on, evaluation of musical metacreations
    * Emerging musical styles and approaches to music production and performance involving the use of AI systems
    Format and Submissions
    ======================
    The workshop will be a one day event including:
    * Presentations of TECHNICAL PAPERS
    * Presentations of POSITION PAPERS relevant to Musical Metacreation and its future
    * Presentations of DEMONSTRATIONS
    * One or more PANEL SESSIONS (potential topics include international collaborations, evaluation methodologies, industry engagement, generative music in art vs. games)
