evomusart 2013

2nd International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
Music, Sound, Art and Design

3-5 April 2013, Vienna, Austria

Part of evo* 2013

evo*: http://www.evostar.org


Following the success of previous events and the importance of the field of
evolutionary and biologically inspired music, sound, art and design,
evomusart has become an evo* conference with independent proceedings. Thus,
evomusart 2013 is the eleventh European Event and the second International
Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and

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; design; and other creative tasks.

The main goal of evomusart 2013 is to bring together researchers who are
using biologically inspired computer techniques for artistic tasks,
providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in
the area.

The event will be held from 3-5 April, 2013 in Vienna, Austria as part of
the evo* event.

Submissions will be rigorously reviewed for scientific and artistic merit.
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. The
acceptance rate at evomusart 2012 was 34.9% for papers accepted for oral
presentation, or 46.5% for oral and poster presentation combined.


Topics of interest


Submissions should concern the use of biologically inspired computer
techniques -- e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Artificial
Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence, other artificial intelligence
techniques -- in the generation, analysis and interpretation of art, music,
design, architecture and other artistic fields. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

-- Generation

      - Biologically Inspired Design and Art -- Systems that create
drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs, webpages,
buildings, etc.;

      - Biologically Inspired Sound and Music -- Systems that create
musical pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound analysis,

      - Robotic-Based Evolutionary Art and Music;

      - Other related artificial intelligence or generative techniques in
the fields of Computer Music, Computer Art, etc.;

-- Theory

      - Computational Aesthetics, Experimental Aesthetics; Emotional
Response, Surprise, Novelty;

      - Representation techniques;

      - Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;

      - Validation methodologies;

      - Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;

      - New models designed to promote the creative potential of
biologically inspired computation;

-- Computer Aided Creativity and computational creativity

      - Systems in which biologically inspired computation is used to
promote the creativity of a human user;

      - New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;

      - Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biologically
inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
approaches; the resulting artefacts;

      - Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;

-- Automation

      - Techniques for automatic fitness assignment;

      - Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to produce novel

      - Systems that resort to biologically inspired computation to perform
the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types of
artistic object.
