Scope and Motivation:

Environmental sustainability has become a topic of particular interest - and concern in - in the last 20 years. Environmental sustainability is focused upon responsible decision-making and action-taking for the protection of the environment, and - thus - its ability to continue to support life. At the same time, environmental sustainability tackles the issue of developing optimal practices that will reduce - and eventually minimise/ideally reverse - the negative impact on the environment. Further to pollution, waste, and energy reduction, environmental sustainability aims at developing processes that will lead to human societies becoming completely sustainable in the future. The use of non-parametric, noise-resistant, and learn-by-example approaches are pertinent to this end and constitute the focus of this ICO’18 Special Session.

 

Topics:

Environmental sustainability
Sustainable development
Decision making
Action taking
Optimisation
Long-, medium- and long-term impact assessment
Human activity and the environment
Product life-cycle

 

Title:

Computational Intelligence Applications to Music

 

Organiser:

Tatiana Tambouratzis, University of Piraeus, Greece

E-mail: tatianatambouratzis@gmail.com

The proposed special session aims to explore as well as promote the partnership that is developing between computational intelligence scientists and musicians, both at the level of music theory and analysis, and at the level of music composition, improvisation, and performance. The detection and appropriate representation of the salient aspects of music are of special interest for

  • formally expressing its structure

  • automating the processes of music classification (e.g. by era, composer), score completion (for unfinished pieces), and the creation of variations to a given theme,

  • uncovering the rules of composition of a given composer, and grouping composers according to different criteria

  • providing means of improvisation/composition/imitation of the styles of specific composers or periods, and – thus – of automating the process of music generation

  • expressing a music theme into different styles

  • helping music students and young performers in score memorisation.

Topics:

Environmental sustainability
Sustainable development
Decision making
Action taking
Optimisation
Long-, medium- and long-term impact assessment
Human activity and the environment
Product life-cycle
