Present CFP : 2016

The 17th International Conference on Music Information Retrieval, ISMIR 2016, will be held in New York City, USA, from Monday, August 8 to Thursday, August 11, 2016.

The annual conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) is the world’s leading research forum on processing, analyzing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data. Music becomes music after being processed by the human mind and each person perceives the music in a different and complex way. Therefore, this conference embraces the complexity and diversity of music by showcasing ideas and applications that aim to enhance the way in which we interact with music.

Music-IR is a truly interdisciplinary area, involving researchers, developers, educators, librarians, students and professionals from the disciplines of musicology, cognitive science, library and information science, computer science, electrical engineering and many others. Therefore, like previous ISMIR editions, ISMIR 2016 will provide a venue for the exchange of ideas, issues, results and perspectives among the different profiles of people working with music and computing in a broad sense. ISMIR 2016 will cover the entire area of Music-IR, providing ample room for diversity and new developments.
