The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of artistic 
systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a 
growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields such as: 
visual art and music generation, analysis, and interpretation; sound 
synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; and design.

evomusart 2011 is the ninth european event on Evolutionary Music and Art. 
Following the success of previous events and the growth of interest 
in the field, the main goal of evomusart 2011 is to bring together 
researchers who are using biologically inspired techniques for artistic 
tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss 
ongoing work in the area.

The event will be held from 27-29 April, 2011 in Torino, Italy
as part of the evostar event.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the event and included 
in the evoapplications proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in the 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The papers should concern the use of biologically inspired techniques - 
e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Artificial Neural Networks, 
Swarm Intelligence, etc. - in the scope of the generation, analysis and 

of art, music, design, architecture and other artistic fields. Topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to:

- Generation
    o Biologically Inspired Design and Art - Systems that create drawings, 
      images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs, webpages, 
      buildings, etc.; 
    o Biologically Inspired Sound and Music - Systems that create musical 
      pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound analysis, etc.; 
    o Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music; 
    o Other related generative techniques;

- Theory 
    o Computational Aesthetics, Emotional Response, Surprise, Novelty; 
    o Representation techniques; 
    o Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification 
      of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification; 
    o Validation methodologies; 
    o Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas; 
    o New models designed to promote the creative potential of biologically 
      inspired computation;

- Computer Aided Creativity 
    o Systems in which biologically inspired computation is used to promote 
      the creativity of a human user; 
    o New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle; 
    o Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biologically 
      inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these 
      approaches; the resulting artifacts; 
    o Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;

- Automation 
    o Techniques for automatic fitness assignment; 
    o Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is 
      used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to produce 
      novel objects; 
    o Systems that resort to biologically inspired computation to perform 
      the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types 
      of artistic object;

Submission:        22 November 2010
Notification:        7 January 2011
Camera ready:        1 February 2011
Workshop:        27-29 April 2011

Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS 
format (instructions downloadable from 

no later than November 22, 2010 to site http://myreview.csregistry.org/evoapps11

The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information about the 
authors in the submitted paper.

The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of 
the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the 
results of the review by January 7, 2011.

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the 
basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera 
ready version of their manuscripts, along with text sources and 
pictures, by February 1, 2011. The accepted papers will appear in the 
workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be 
available at the workshop.
