CfP: Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity (University of Huddersfield)

University of Huddersfield:
“Study Day on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity”
27 June 2015 – University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, UK
Deadline: 20 April 2015
Keynote Speaker: Prof. Eduardo Miranda (

The main goal of the „Study Day on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity“ is to bring together scholars from different backgrounds, interested in musical creativity, providing an interdisciplinary platform to promote, present and discuss their work.

Submissions can cover both theoretical and/or practical aspects of computer simulation of musical creativity. Interdisciplinary proposals at the intersection of musicology, music theory, computer science, psychology and philosophy are warmly invited. Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

Computer simulation

  • systems capable of creating musical pieces and sound;
  • systems capable of performing music;
  • systems capable of online improvisation;
  • simulation of music societies;
  • robot-based systems;
  • systems that enhance the creativity of human users;
  • computational aesthetics, emotional response, novelty/originality


  • surveys of the state of the art techniques;
  • validation methodologies;
  • philosophical foundations of music creative systems;
  • evolutionary-based models for music creative systems;
  • cognitive-based models for music creative systems;
  • studies on applicability of techniques to other areas;
  • new models for improving music creative systems.

Abstract submission
We accept proposals for papers, posters and workshops. We welcome abstracts of no more than 300 words for papers and posters, and 500 words for workshops. For details about the Study Day and the abstract submission process, please visit the conference website (
