Registrations for the 8th International Conference on Music Information Retrieval, September 23rd - 27th 2007 in Vienna, Austria, have just opened.

 More about the conference:

The 8th International Conference on Music Information Retrieval will be held at the Vienna University of Technology in Vienna, Austria, from Sunday, September 23rd to Thursday, September 27th, 2007. The annual ISMIR Conference is the established international forum for those working on accessing digital musical material. It reflects the tremendous recent growth of available music-related data and the consequent need to search within it to retrieve music and musical information efficiently and effectively. These concerns are of interest to academia, industry, entertainment, and education. ISMIR therefore aims to provide a place for the exchange and discussion of news, issues, and results, by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and professional users, working in fields that contribute to this multidisciplinary domain.

ISMIR 2007 will start with four Tutorials in specific domains on Sunday, September 23rd, 2007:

  • Tutorial 1: Synchronization and Matching Techniques for Music Data  (Meinard Müller and Roger B. Dannenberg)
  • Tutorial 2: Music Recommendation (Oscar Celma and Paul Lamere)
  • Tutorial 3: Introduction to MIRToolbox (Olivier Lartillot)
  • Tutorial 4: Techniques for Implementing the Generative Theory of Tonal  Music (Keiji Hirata, Satoshi Tojo and Masatoshi Hamanaka)

The Technical Programme features plenary sessions with talks on theoretical and practical work on Music Information Retrieval (MIR) topics such as music analysis, segmentation and classification, knowledge representation, MIR systems and interfaces, musicology, social aspects and human factors. ISMIR 2007 received 214 submissions, of which 34 were accepted as long papers, 28 as short papers, and 67 as posters. Each paper was reviewed by at least 3 reviewers and a meta-reviewer (Programme Committee member). The full list of accepted papers is available at:

The Technical Programme  will be complemented by poster sessions which give researchers an opportunity to present new work and ideas in an interactive setting, as well as a dedicated session on MIREX, the 2007 Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange.

The Social Programme of ISMIR 2007 will start with an Ice Breaking Event after the Tutorials on Sunday, September 23rd. The official Reception takes place at the Imperial Palace on Monday, September 24th and includes a visit of the collection of ancient music instruments. The Banquet will take place on Tuesday, September 25th at the City Hall of Vienna.

The full programme of ISMIR 2007 will be available from July on:
