13th International Workshop on
Machine Learning and Music
September 18, 2020
Held in conjunction with ECML-PKDD 2020
MML 2020 Call for Papers
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. MML 2020 is the 13th edition of 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), 2018 (ICML, Stockholm, Sweden), and 2019 (ECML, Würzburg, Germany).
The expected outcome of the workshop is to promote fruitful multidisciplinary collaboration among researchers who are using machine learning techniques in musical applications, by providing the opportunity to discuss ongoing work in the area. The expected attendees are active researchers in machine learning and music who have special interest in content-based music processing.
Papers in all applications on music and machine learning are welcome, including but not limited to
Automatic classification of music (audio and MIDI)
Style-based interpreter recognition
Music recommender systems, genre and tag prediction
Automatic score alignment
Polyphonic pitch detection
Deep learning in music applications
Expressive performance modeling
Statistical models for music prediction and generation *
* Extended versions of papers on this topic are welcomed for consideration for the Applied Sciences Special Issue on Statistical Models for Music Prediction and Generation.
Paper submission Deadline: July 6, 2020
Acceptance Notification: July 13, 2020
Camera ready due: July 28, 2020
Workshop Date: September 18, 2020
MML 2020 will definitely be held as a Virtual workshop, or possibly Hybrid with also a physical presence in Ghent depending on the corona situation.
Submissions of Papers
Papers of 4 printed pages in LNCS format are welcome. Papers will be evaluated according to their originality and relevance to the workshop, and should include author names, affiliations, contact information, and an abstract of 60-100 words. Contributions should be in PDF format and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
