A one-day workshop organised by the British Section of the Audio Engineering Society and the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London.

Audio Engineering and Music Production are inherently technical disciplines, often involving extensive training and the investment of time. The processes involved implicitly require knowledge of signal processing and audio analysis, and can present barriers to musicians and non-specialists. The emerging field of Intelligent Music Production addresses these issues via the development of systems that map complex processes to intuitive interfaces and automate elements of the processing chain.

The event will provide an overview of some of the tools and techniques currently being developed in the field, whilst providing insight for audio engineers, producers and musicians looking to gain access to new technologies. The day will consist of presentations from leading academics, industry keynotes, and additional posters and demonstrations.

We welcome submissions on all aspects of Intelligent Music Production from researchers from any country at all stages of their careers.

Accepted submissions will be made available as online proceedings under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0).

The works will be presented as a poster during coffee and lunch breaks. A select number of authors will be invited to present their work orally.

Presenting authors will have to register to the event on

Venue subject to change, though the event will take place at a Queen Mary University of London campus, in London, UK.
