1st Workshop in Evolutionary Music to be held in conjunction with IEEE CEC 2011 supported by:

  • Francisco Fernandéz, Extremadura University, Spain
  • Carlos Cotta, Málaga University, Spain

Web and Publicity:

  • Gustavo Reis, Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, Portugal.


[edit] News

The proceedings are now available online.

Professor Bill Moranis video at ECMusic is now available online.

The schedule of the Workshop has been updated.

A Special Issue in a JCR Journal (to be annunced) is already confirmed to publish extended versions of the best papers.

[edit] Introduction

Music provides a perfect area of research for Evolutionary Computation and New Orleans is the place where a Specific Workshop on the topic must begin. A number of problems are present and still open to new proposals, such as:

  • Generative Music Composition.
  • Evolutionary Music Modeling.
  • Rhythmic structure and Key analysis.
  • Music Transcription.
  • Music Improvisation.
  • Music Genre classification.
  • Music mood analysis.
  • Optimization of Music Performance.
  • Sound synthesis.
  • Machine learning methods for audio content analysis .
  • Automatic tagging of audio signals.
  • Content-based audio retrieval.
  • Music information retrieval.
  • Music recommendation.
  • User interfaces for music management and retrieval.
  • Intelligent audio effects.
  • Audio restoration.
  • Etc.

The workshop aims particularly at providing a place where the research is not only shown but also performed. Authors will thus be encouraged to send both regular papers describing new approaches and results, along with audio records allowing to appreciate the quality of the works.

[edit] Call For Papers

Authors are encourage to submit high quality papers and audio results related to any of the topics described above. It is of interest to show a large set of problems that are being addressed using Evolutionary Computation as well as problems that are still awaiting for new proposals.

A CD will be compiled and distributed among the audience with the results published in the workshop -including both papers and audio files. We are also considering the publication of a Special Issue or book with extended versions of the best papers.

[edit] Submission

The submission procedure follows the calendar shown below. Two-pages abstract will be submitted first and evaluated. Abstract acceptance would allow authors to follow CEC Early Registration deadline. Authors will then send the final extended versions of the paper following the instructions included below.

Standard IEEE templates should be used for both tow-pages abstract and final version of the papers:


Paper must be submmitted at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecmusic11 following the same rules as for CEC papers:


   *      Number of Pages: Maximum 8 pages, including figures, tables & references.
   *      Page Size: U.S. Letter format (8.5" x 11")
   *      Page Numbering: Off
   *      File Format: PDF only
   *      File Size: 4MB maximum
   *      Abstract: It is important that the abstract is meaningful description of your paper.
   *      Keywords: Choose from 3 to 8 keywords
   *      Color: Use of color is encouraged, but since readers will usually print the papers in black and white, it is the author's responsibility to ensure that all figures/plots 
can be printed and understood in black and white.

Templates are available at: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
