Call for demos

CMMR 2012 invites proposals of demonstrations. Demonstrations should present innovative working systems which, if applicable, can be tested by users. Such interaction would not be possible in a technical talk or a poster session.

CMMR 2012 provides a leading international forum to bring together researchers, companies, educators, composers, performers, and others with an interest in music informatics, music technologies and music-based entertainment.


Demo submissions are encouraged in all areas related to music informatics. In particular, we encourage demo submissions on:

  • Music and emotions (e.g. analysis, retrieval, synthesis, composition, performance, music for images)
  • Augmented musical instruments
  • Fashion and music technology
  • Computational musicology
  • Auditory perception and cognition
  • Virtual reality, augmented reality and human-computer interaction related to music
  • Digital music libraries
  • User studies (e.g. ethnography, usability of music software)
  • New methods for music representation and visualization
  • Retrieval and music recommendation tools
  • Intelligent music tutoring systems
  • Music games and interactive learning
  • Music production and composition tools
  • Structuring of audio data
  • Cooperative music networks
  • Analysis, recognition, comparison, classification, and modeling of sound and music
  • Music and sound data mining
  • Sound synthesis
  • Optical music recognition
  • Semantic web music technologies
  • Sound source separation
  • Music structure analysis
  • Music transcription
  • Artificial intelligence and cognitive science for sound and music


All submissions of demonstration proposals will be peer-reviewed to ensure quality and suitability. Please submit a demonstration proposal following the instructions specified in the Author instructions & Submission section of the CMMR 2012 website. Participants of accepted proposals are required to be registered for the conference by the author registration deadline.
