((( MUME 2016 )))

4th International Workshop on Musical Metacreation

June 27, 2016

MUME 2016 is to be held in Paris at Université Pierre et Marie Curie
(UPMC), in conjunction with the Seventh International Conference on
Computational Creativity, ICCC 2016.

=== Important Dates ===

Workshop submission deadline: May 1, 2016

Notification date: June 1, 2016

Camera-ready version: June 10, 2016

Workshop date: June 27, 2016


We are delighted to announce the 4th International Workshop on Musical
Metacreation (MUME 2016) to be held June 27, 2016, in conjunction with the
Seventh International Conference on Computational Creativity, ICCC 2016.
MUME 2016 builds on the enthusiastic response and participation we received
for the past occurrences of MUME series:

- MUME 2012 (held in conjunction with AIIDE 2012 at Stanford):

- MUME 2013 (held in conjunction with AIIDE 2013 at NorthEastern):

- MUME 2014 (held in conjunction with AIIDE 2014 at North Carolina):

Metacreation involves using tools and techniques from artificial
intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often
inspired by cognitive and life sciences, for creative tasks. Musical
Metacreation explores the design and use of these tools for music making:
discovery and exploration of novel musical styles and content,
collaboration between human performers and creative software “partners”,
and design of systems in gaming and entertainment that dynamically generate
or modify music.

MUME aims to bring together artists, practitioners, and researchers
interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively)
recognize, learn, represent, compose, generate, complete, accompany, or
interpret music. As such, we welcome contributions to the theory or
practice of generative music systems and their applications in new media,
digital art, and entertainment at large.



We encourage paper and demo submissions on MUME-related topics, including
the following:

-- Representation and Algorithms for MUME

---- Novel representations of musical information

---- Advances or applications of AI, machine learning, and statistical
techniques for generative music

---- Advances or applications of evolutionary computing or agent and
multi-agent based systems for generative music

-- Systems and Applications of MUME

---- Systems for autonomous or interactive music composition

---- Systems for automatic generation of expressive musical interpretation

---- Systems for learning or modeling music style and structure

---- Systems for intelligently remixing or recombining musical material

---- Online musical systems (i.e. systems with a real-time element)

---- Adaptive and generative music in video games

---- Techniques and systems for supporting human musical creativity

---- Applications of musical metacreation for digital entertainment: sound
design, soundtracks, interactive art, etc.

-- Evaluation of MUME

---- Methodologies for qualitative or quantitative evaluation of MUME

---- Studies reporting on the evaluation of MUME

---- Theory, and Socio-economical Impact of MUME

---- Computational models of human musical creativity

---- Emerging musical styles and approaches to music production and
performance involving the use of AI systems

---- Socio-economical impact of MUME

---- Authorship and legal implications of MUME

Submission Format and Requirements


Please make submissions via the EasyChair system at: .

The workshop is a full day event that includes:

- Presentations of FULL TECHNICAL PAPERS (8 pages maximum)

- Presentations of POSITION PAPERS and WORK-IN-PROGRESS PAPERS (5 pages

- Presentations of DEMONSTRATIONS (3 pages maximum)

All papers should be submitted as complete works. Demo systems should be
tested and working by the time of submission, rather than be speculative.
We encourage audio and video material to accompany and illustrate the
papers (especially for demos). We ask that authors arrange for their web
hosting of audio and video files, and give URL links to all such files
within the text of the submitted paper.

Submissions do not have to be anonymized, as we use single-blind reviewing.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee

Workshop papers will be published as MUME 2016 Proceedings and will be
archived with an ISBN number. Submissions should be formatted using the
AAAI, 2-column format; see instructions and templates here:

Submission should be uploaded using MUME 2016 EasyChair portal:

For complete details on attendance, submissions and formatting, please

visit the workshop website:

Presentation and Multimedia Equipment:


We will provide a video projection system as well as a stereo audio system
for use by presenters at the venue. Additional equipment required for
presentations and demonstrations should be supplied by the presenters.
Contact the Workshop Chair to discuss any special equipment and setup



It is expected that at least one author of each accepted submission will
attend the workshop to present their contribution. We also welcome those
who would like to attend the workshop without presenting. Workshop
registration will be available through the ICCC2016 conference system.
