EvoMUSART 2010 - Submission Deadline Extension

8th European Event on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design

7-9 April, 2010, Istanbul, Turkey


http://www.evostar.org

----------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
----------------------------------------------------------------------

EvoMUSART 2010 is the eighth European Event on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design. Following the success of previous editions and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART 2010 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.

EvoMUSART 2010 will be held from 7-9 April, 2010 in Istanbul, Turkey as part of the European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation, EvoApplications 2010.

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


EvoMUSART 2010 important dates are:

Submission deadline: November 11, 2009
Conference: 7-9 April, 2010


----------------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS OF INTEREST
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The papers should concern the use of bio-inspired techniques (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-Making Systems that create drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, objects, designs, webpages, buildings, etc.;
   o Biologically Inspired Sound-Generators and Music-Systems that create music, aggregate sound, or simulate instruments, voices, effects, 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 Comparative analysis and classification;
   o Validation methodologies;
   o New biologically inspired computation models in art, music and design;
- Computer Aided Creativity
   o New ways of integrating users into evolutionary computation art and music frameworks;
   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 that exploit biologically inspired computation to analyze artistic objects and artifacts;
