Third Conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity (CSMC)
22nd-24th August 2018 at Michael Smurfit School, University College Dublin, Ireland.
The third conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity (CSMC) will be held from 22nd-24th August 2018 at University College Dublin. The main goal of this conference is to bring together scholars from different backgrounds, interested in virtual emulation of musical creativity, providing an interdisciplinary platform to promote, present and discuss their work. We are currently accepting full paper, workshop and performance proposals.
Submissions can cover both theoretical and/or practical aspects of the computer simulation of musical creativity. Interdisciplinary proposals at the intersection of music, computer science, psychology and philosophy are welcome. Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:
- systems capable of generating music;
- systems capable of performing music;
- systems capable of (online) improvisation;
- systems capable of analysing music;
- music-robotic systems;
- systems implementing societies of virtual musicians;
- systems that foster and enhance the musical creativity of human users;
- music recommendation systems;
- systems implementing computational aesthetics, emotional responses, novelty and originality;
- surveys of state-of-the-art techniques in the area;
- validation methodologies;
- philosophical foundations of creative music systems;
- mathematical foundations of creative music systems;
- evolutionary models for creative music systems;
- cognitive models for creative music systems;
- studies on the applicability of music-creative techniques to other research areas;
- new models for improving creative music systems.
Peer-Review Process and Proceedings
All papers are double-blind peer reviewed by at least two specialists. Proceedings will be published online. Extended versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Creative Music Systems (http://jcms.org.uk/).
Deadline for performance/concert/workshop proposals: 1st May 2018
Deadline for paper submission: 21st May 2018
Notification of acceptance: 2nd July 2018
