EvoMUSART 2009

7th European Workshop on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music,
Sound, Art and Design

15-17 April, 2009, Tubingen, Germany


EvoMUSART 2009 is the seventh workshop of the EvoNet working group on
Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events
and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART
2009 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 this area.

The workshop will be held from 15-17 April, 2009 in Tubingen, Germany
as part of the EvoStar event.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included
in the EvoWorkshops 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 interpretation 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, objects, designs,
      webpages, buildings, etc.;
    o Biologically Inspired Sound and Music - Systems that create music,
      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 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 automated 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 exploit biologically inspired computation to perform
      the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types
      of artistic object;

Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format
no later than November 5, 2008. Formatting instructions available at:

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 December 20, 2008.

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 January 8, 2009. The accepted papers will appear in the
workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be
available at the workshop.
