Call for abstracts: 3rd International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis

The *3rd International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis* will take place in Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 6 and 7, 2013.

This workshop is an excellent opportunity to discuss and present ongoing research in the area of computational ethnomusicology.

The two aims of the workshop are: firstly, to stimulate further integration of new computational methods with existing (ethno)musicological research tradition(s), and, secondly, to stimulate more attention to non-Western musics in the field of Music Information Retrieval. We aim at an exiting event that is equally interesting for both musicologists and information scientists.

We welcome substantial research contributions with fleshed-out results as well as brand new ideas that have potential to eventually generate important results and that need discussion. The workshop is an excellent platform for such discussion.

Topics include:
– Computational ethnomusicology
– Retrieval systems for non-western and folk musics
– New methods for music transcription
– Folk music classification systems
– Models of oral transmission of music
– Cognitive modelling of music
– Aesthetics and related philosophical issues
– Methodological issues
– Representational issues and models
– Audio and symbolic representations
– Formal and computational music analysis

Authors are kindly invited to submit an extended abstract (max. 1000 words or 2 pages A4 in 12 point font). The extended abstracts will be peer reviewed. During the workshop, a time slot will be reserved for each accepted abstract for presentation and discussion. After the workshop, both the peer-reviewed abstracts and (optional) full papers will be published online.

The Deadline for abstract submissions is: 10 February 2013.
