We are happy to announce the following call for papers:

ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology
Special Issue on Intelligent Music Systems and Applications

With the advent of music information retrieval (MIR), intelligent 
technologies have become an essential part of music systems and 
applications. This is evidenced by today’s omnipresence of digital 
online music stores and streaming services, which rely on music 
recommenders, automatic playlist generators, and music browsing 
interfaces. A large amount of MIR research leading to intelligent music 
applications deals with the extraction of musical and acoustic 
information directly from the audio signal using signal processing 
techniques. Other strategies exploit contextual aspects of music, not 
present in the signal, for example, community meta-data and trails of 
user interaction, as found, for instance, on social media platforms. 
Recently, also user-centric aspects are being considered, such as 
affect, personality, and user context. Intelligent music systems have 
also been developed as music creation tools, in which case the modeling 
of a composer's preferences or of genre/stylistic features are required.

Topics of interest
This special issue addresses all aspects of music information, i.e., 
music content, context, and user aspects. Highest quality research that 
has not been published, nor is under review elsewhere, targeting one or 
more of the following topics in the context of intelligent music systems 
and applications is welcome:
• Music Information Systems
• Music Recommendation and Playlist Generation
• Intelligent Music and Audio Browsing Interfaces
• Games Based on Intelligent Music Analysis
• Automatic Accompaniment or Real-time Tracking of Performances
• Music Synthesis
• Automatic Composition
• Automatic Lyrics Generation
• MIR in the Music Production Domain
• Semantic Content Analysis, Knowledge Extraction, and Music Indexing
• Collaborative Tags, Social Media Mining, Network Analysis
• User Modeling and Personalized Music Systems
• Personality, Emotion, and Affect
• Hybrid Systems using Content and Context
• Multimedia Approaches to MIR and Cross-media Recommendation
• Large-Scale Music Retrieval
• Evaluation, Mining of Ground Truth, and Data Collections
