NEMISIG 2017 - Call for Participation

(Apologies for cross-posting)

Dear MIRers, 


We are pleased to announce that NEMISIG 2017 (North East Music Information Special Interest Group) will be held on February 10, 2017, and HAMR 2017 (Hacking Audio and Music Research) will be held on February 11 and 12, both at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY. We cordially invite you to attend these events to present/implement your ideas and have fun with other MIRers!


NEMISIG is a yearly informal workshop which brings together researchers from various institutions in the Northeastern U.S. (and sometimes other countries) who work on music information retrieval. The meeting provides a space for open discussion of new ideas and intends to foster intercollegiate collaboration. It features keynote talks, lab overview talks, lecture and poster presentations, as well as a jam session. HAMR is an event which applies the hackathon model to the development of new techniques for analyzing, processing, and synthesizing audio and music signals.



Participants are invited to present research either as a short talk or during a poster session. Discussion of any work related to music information retrieval is invited. We also encourage representatives from each institution to give a short lab overview talk on the work being done in their research lab. Those interested in attending and giving a talk or presenting a poster should submit a short abstract on the workshop website.



The workshop is free and covers breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee and evening drinks. However, all individuals who would like to attend, regardless if you are presenting, should register on the NEMISIG 2017 website before February 1, 2017. This gives us enough time to make program and food arrangements.

Researchers from any stage in their career are encouraged to participate.



NEMISIG - Feb 10, 2017 

NEMIJAM - Feb 10, 2017 (evening)
