[EXTENDED DEADLINE] Call for papers for the 9th International
Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Music, Sound, Art and Design
(EvoMUSART)

————————————————

The 9th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Music,
Sound, Art and Design (EvoMUSART) will be held in Seville, Spain, on
15-17 April 2020, as part of the evo* event.

SPECIAL ISSUES: There are two special issues on JCR journals
associated to EvoMUSART: “Neural Computing and Applications” (Q1, IF:
4.66) and “Entropy” (Q2, IF: 2.419). See EvoMUSART 2020 webpage for
more information on these special issues.

The main goal of EvoMUSART is to bring together researchers who are
using Artificial Intelligence techniques (e.g. artificial neural
network, evolutionary computation, swarm, cellular automata, alife)
for artistic tasks such as visual art, music, architecture, video,
digital games, poetry, or design. The conference gives researchers in
the field the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work
in the area.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series.

IMPORTANT DATES
Extended! Submission deadline: 15 November 2019

Evo*: 15-17 April 2020

We welcome submissions which use Artificial Intelligence techniques in
the generation, analysis and interpretation of art, music, design,
architecture and other artistic fields. Submissions must be at most 16
pages long, in Springer LNCS format. Each submission must be
anonymised for a double-blind review process. The deadline for
submission is 1 November 2019. Accepted papers will be presented
orally or as posters at the event and included in the EvoMUSART
proceedings published by Springer Verlag in a dedicated volume of the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Indicative topics include but are not limited to:

* Systems that create drawings, images, animations, sculptures,
poetry, text, designs, webpages, buildings, etc.;

* Systems that create musical pieces, sounds, instruments, voices,
sound effects, sound analysis, etc.;

* Systems that create artefacts such as game content, architecture,
furniture, based on aesthetic and/or functional criteria;

* Systems that resort to artificial intelligence to perform the
analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types of
artistic object;

* Systems in which artificial intelligence is used to promote the
creativity of a human user;

* Theories or models of computational aesthetics;

* Computational models of emotional response, surprise, novelty;

* Representation techniques for images, videos, music, etc.;

* Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area;

* New ways of integrating the user in the process (e.g. improvisation,
co-creation, participation).
