AdMIRe 2011: 3rd International Workshop on Advances in Music Information Research

AdMIRe 2011: 3rd International Workshop on  Advances in Music Information Research

In Conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) Barcelona, Spain, July 11-15, 2011

Date of the Workshop: July 11/15, 2011
Paper Submission: February 20, 2011

The “International Workshop on Advances in Music Information Research”

(AdMIRe) serves as a forum for theoretical and practical discussions of cutting edge research in the fields of Web mining for music information extraction, retrieval, and recommendation as well as in mobile applications and services. Research on multimodal extraction, retrieval, and presentation with a focus on the music and audio domain is especially welcome. So are submissions addressing concrete implementations of systems and services by both academic institutions and industrial companies.

Workshop papers will be official publications of IEEE, which will be included in IEEE Xplore and also be printed as part of the conference proceedings.

Music information research has been a fast growing field during the past decade. In traditional content-based MIR, music-related information was extracted from the audio signal using signal processing techniques.

These methods, however, cannot capture semantic information that is not encoded in the audio signal, but nonetheless essential to many consumers, e.g., the meaning of the lyrics of a song or the political motivation or background of a singer.

In recent years, the emergence of various Web 2.0 platforms and services dedicated to the music and audio domain, like, MusicBrainz, or echonest, has provided novel and powerful, albeit noisy, sources for high level, semantic information on music artists, albums, songs, and others.

The abundance of such information provided by the power of the crowd can hence contribute to music information research and development considerably.

On the other hand, the wealth of newly available, semantically meaningful information offered on Web 2.0 platforms also poses new challenges, e.g., dealing with the huge amount and the noisiness of this kind of data, various user biases, hacking, or the cold start problem.

Another recent trend, not at last addressable to platforms like Apple’s iPhone or Google’s Android, are intelligent user interfaces to access the large amounts of music usually available on today’s mobile music players. Mobile devices that offer high-speed Web access allow for even more music to be consumed via Web services. Dealing with these vast amounts of music requires intelligent services on mobile devices that provide, for example, personalized and context-aware music recommendations.

The current emergence and confluence of these challenges make this an interesting field for researchers and industry practitioners alike.
