WoRMS 2021 : 3rd International Workshop on Reading Music Systems
Call For Papers
It is our pleasure to announce the 3rd International Workshop on Music Reading Systems (WoRMS). It will take place on Friday, the 23rd of July 2021, at the University of Alicante, co-located with the Music Encoding Conference 2021.
WoRMS is a workshop that tries to connect researchers who develop music reading systems — especially from the field of optical music recognition, but also related topics such as score following, score searching, or information retrieval from written music — with researchers and practitioners that could benefit from such systems, like practitioners, librarians or musicologists.
WoRMS will be organized as a one-day workshop and provides a good opportunity to share ideas, discuss current developments and shape the future of music reading systems. We would like for diverse points of view to engage, by explicitly inviting contributors without a technical background to participate as well.
We strive to make the workshop as interactive as possible, with participants getting the opportunity not just to present their work, but to discuss current research in depth and foster relationships within the community. Therefore, promising ideas, work-in-progress submissions and recently submitted or published works are equally welcome.
As a novelty of this edition, a list of the best contributions to the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of Applied Sciences.
The topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Music reading systems
- Optical music recognition
- Datasets and performance evaluation
- Image processing on music scores
- Writer identification
- Authoring, editing, storing and presentation systems for music scores
- Multi-modal systems
- Novel input-methods for music to produce written music
- Web-based Music Information Retrieval services
- Applications and projects
- Use-cases related to written music
Submission Deadline: 30 April 2021 (Updated)
Notification Due: 28 May 2021
Workshop: 23 July 2021
It is our hope that WoRMS 2021 can be held on site. In case the health situation does not allow us to do so, we will set up the infrastructure to let it take place online. Either way, it is planned to provide streaming services to follow the conference from anywhere.
