Call for panels

CMMR 2012 invites proposals for panels. Panels should focus either on the theme of the conferene (Music and Emotions), emerging musical technologies, or unsolved problems in music informatics. Panels should stimulate lively and thoughtful discussions amongst the panelists and the delegates. We expect the panelists to actively engage the audience and help them broaden their understanding of the related issues. Panelists have to be stimulating, informative, and entertaining.

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.


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

  • Music and emotions (e.g. analysis, retrieval, synthesis, composition, performance, music for images)
  • 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


Please submit a panel proposal following the instructions and format specified in the Author instructions & Submission section of the CMMR 2012 website. The panelists should be registered at CMMR 2012 in order to present a panel.
