Call For Papers

Journal of New Music Research

Machine learning has permeated nearly every area of music informatics, driven by a renewed interest in computational musicology, the vast sources of music in digital audio formats, the steady increase in size and availability of symbolic corpora, and advances in semantic annotation of large audio collections.

To provide a collection of the highest quality contemporary work in machine learning and music, the Journal of New Music Research will host its second Special Issue on Music and Machine Learning. This Special Issue follows the successful JNMR 2011 Special Issue on Music and Machine Learning.

For the Special Issue on Music and Machine Learning we welcome submissions employing either symbolic or audio music data, and also encourage methods that bridge the symbolic/audio junction. Predictive as well as descriptive approaches to music data are equally encouraged. We invite contributions describing machine learning approaches to music processing including, but not limited to, the following topics:

Music Classification
Pattern and Structure Discovery
Music Generation and Algorithmic Composition
Computational Musicology
Music Knowledge Representation for Machine Learning
Music Clustering and Descriptive Rule Mining
Interactive Performance Systems
Cover Song Detection
Expressive Music Performance
Emotion and Mood
Psychoacoustics and Music Perception
Harmonic Analysis
Audio Chord Extraction
Playlist Analysis and Generation

Submissions must provide a thorough background on the music problem under study, a detailed description of the data set used, a sufficient description of the machine learning method employed, including algorithmic aspects where appropriate, and a strong evaluation of results. Manuscripts are submitted through the Journal of New Music Research ScholarOne site, not to the Guest Editors directly. On the "Manuscript Type" dropdown menu, authors must select "SI - Music and Machine Learning". Submissions must comply with the Journal's general guidelines for authors. In terms of paper length for the Special Issue, submissions should be roughly 6,000 words in length and formatted using latex options fullpage, 12pt, a4paper, doublespacing.

Manuscripts exceeding significantly the word count limit, or received after the deadline (below), will be returned without review to the authors and not considered for the Special Issue.
