Forthcoming Meetings

AES 2nd Workshop on Intelligent Music Production

Date: 13 Sep 2016
Time: 10:00

Location: Willoughby Lecture Theatre, Charterhouse Square
Charterhouse Square

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.

Proposals for presentations should be in extended abstract form and PDF format, and be sent to Submissions should be written in 12pt Times New Roman with 1.5 line spacing, and their length including figures and references should not exceed two single column A4 pages. References should be in Journal of the AES format. Accepted submissions may be made available under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0) – contact the workshop Chairs if a different license is desired. Optional templates can be found below.

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.
