14th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference
Curitiba, PR, Brazil - 4-8 November 2013

The annual Conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) is the world's leading research forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data. The revolution in music distribution and storage brought about by digital technology has fueled tremendous research activities and interests in academia as well as in industry. The ISMIR Conference reflects this rapid development by providing a meeting place for the discussion of MIR-related research, developments, methods, tools and experimental results. Its main goal is to foster multidisciplinary exchange by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, as well as students and professional users.
