Welcome to MML13

MML 2013
  6th International Workshop on Machine Learning and Music

Held in Conjunction with the 
European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECML/PKDD 2013)
Prague, Czech Republic
September 23, 2013

News: Proceedings published [link].

With the current explosion and quick expansion of music in digital formats, and the computational power of modern systems, research on machine learning and music is gaining increasing popularity. As complexity of the problems investigated by researchers on machine learning and music increases, there is a need to develop new algorithms and methods to solve these problems. The focus of this workshop is on novel methods which take into account or benefit from musical structure. MML 2013 aims to build on the previous five successful MML editions, MML’08, MML’09, MML'10MML’11 and MML'12.

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
  • automatic composition and improvisation
  • music recommender systems, genre and tag prediction
  • score alignment
  • polyphonic pitch detection
  • chord extraction
  • pattern discovery
  • beat tracking
  • expressive performance modeling
Audio demonstrations are encouraged when indicated by the content of the paper.

Important Dates
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 5, 2013
Acceptance Notification: July 28, 2013
Final versions due: August 2, 2013
Workshop Date: September 23, 2013

Submissions of Papers
Extended abstracts of up to 4 printed pages in LNCS format are welcome. Extended abstracts 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.  Authors should indicate if they have a preference for presentation as a talk or poster.  Please note that, to encourage wide participation, the workshop will publish revised extended abstracts and not full papers.
