ISMIR 2021 Lab Showcase: Call for Contributions

PDF Version

We are inviting labs to our Lab Showcase, a new ISMIR activity! This call is open to academic labs focusing on MIR research. To avoid overlap, we accept no more than one lab from each institution (but labs are welcome to team up).

Lab Showcase:

Lab Showcase is an activity introduced this year at ISMIR where every attendant lab will be allocated a virtual booth. We hope this provides an opportunity for lab members to introduce their work to the conference attendees, thus encouraging further communications/collaborations.The virtual booths provide tools for exchanging text messages, making video calls and uploading materials. The booth time is flexible and up to the labs, but we expect a minimum availability of two pre-determined time slots for live chats. What to share in the booths is totally up to the labs.

Submission Guidelines:

We need the following information in submissions:

  1. Lab name, affiliation (institution), and country;
  2. Principle director(s) and contact email(s);
  3. A brief lab introduction (about one paragraph)

Please refer to the submission form or send the above information to us via email.

Important Dates:

  • Submission Deadline: Sep 30, 2021
  • Notification of Acceptance: Oct 10, 2021

Lab Showcase Chair (Lele Liu)
