Back CfP 12th International Workshop on Machine Learning and Music

Web with full details


Machine learning and artificial intelligence have permeated nearly every area of music informatics, driven by a profusion of recordings available in digital audio formats, steady improvements to the accessibility and quality of symbolic corpora, availability of powerful algorithms in standard machine learning toolboxes, and theoretical advances in machine learning and data mining. As the complexity of the problems investigated by researchers on machine learning and music increases, there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods. As a consequence, research on machine learning and music is an active and growing field reflected in international meetings such as the International Workshops on Machine Learning and Music (MML): 2008 (ICML, Helsinki, Finland), 2009 (ECML, Bled, Slovenia), 2010 (ACM-MM, Florence, Italy), 2011 (NIPS, Sierra Nevada, Spain), 2012 (ICML, Edinburgh, Scotland), 2013 (ECML/PKDD, Prague, Czech Republic), 2014 (Barcelona, Spain), 2015 (ISEA, Vancouver, Canada), 2016 (ECML/PKDD, Riva del Garda, Italy), 2017 (Barcelona, Spain), and 2018 (ICML, Stockholm, Sweden).

Papers in all applications on music and machine learning are welcome, including but not limited to

  • intelligent music learning systems
  • machine learning applications to music learning
  • automatic classification of music (audio and MIDI)
  • style-based interpreter recognition
  • automatic composition and improvisation
  • music recommender systems, genre and tag prediction
  • score alignment
  • polyphonic pitch detection
  • chord extraction
  • pattern discovery
  • music analysis
  • beat tracking
  • expressive performance modeling
  • deep learning for music processing
  • similarity

Audio demonstrations are encouraged when indicated by the content of the paper.
