ISMIR 2006 Call for Submissions

ISMIR 2006 is the seventh international conference on Music Information Retrieval and will be held at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in beautiful Victoria, Canada. The annual ISMIR Conference is the established international forum for those working on accessing digital musical
material. It reflects the tremendous recent growth of music-related data available and the consequent need to search within it to retrieve music and musical information efficiently and effectively. These concerns are of interest to academia, industry, entertainment, and
education. ISMIR therefore aims to provide a place for the exchange and discussion of news, issues and results, by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and professional users, working in fields that contribute to this multidisciplinary domain, to present original theoretical or practical work. It also serves as a discussion forum, provides introductory and in-depth information in specific domains, and showcases current
products and systems.

but not limited to, the general areas:

- Music libraries, archives, digital collections
