    evomusart 2012

    1st International Conference and 10th European Event on Evolutionary
    and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design

    11-13 April 2012, Malaga, Spain

    Part of evo* 2012

    evomusart 2012 is the tenth European event on Evolutionary Music and
    Art. Following the success of previous events and the importance of
    the field of evolutionary and biologically inspired music, sound, art
    and design, evomusart has became a evo* conference with independent
    proceedings. Thus, evomusart 2012 is the tenth European Event on
    Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design
    and the first conference on the field.

    The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of
    artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of
    research. There is a growing interest in the application of these
    techniques in fields such as: visual art and music generation,
    analysis, and interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video;
    poetry; design; and other creative tasks.

    The main goal of evomusart 2012 is to bring together researchers who
    are using biologically inspired computer techniques for artistic
    tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss
    ongoing work in the area.

    The event will be held from 11-13 April, 2012 in Malaga, Spain as part
    of the evostar event.

    Publication Details

    Accepted papers will be presented orally at the event and included in
    the evomusart proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in a dedicated
    volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.


    Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit expanded versions
    of their work for a planned special issue on Evolutionary Art and
    Music of the Springer journal Genetic Programming and Evolvable

    Topics of interest

    The papers should concern the use of biologically inspired computer
    techniques - e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life,
    Artificial Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence, other artificial
    intelligence techniques. - 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
    - Biologically Inspired Design and Art - Systems that create
    drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs,
    webpages, buildings, etc.;
    - Biologically Inspired Sound and Music - Systems that create musical
    pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound analysis,
    - Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
    - Other related artificial intelligence or generative techniques -
    in the fields of Computer Music, Computer Art;

    -- Theory
    - Computational Aesthetics, Experimental Aesthetics; o Emotional
    Response, Surprise, Novelty;
    - Representation techniques;
    - Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
    of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;
    - Validation methodologies;
    - Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;
    - New models designed to promote the creative potential of
    biologically inspired computation;

    -- Computer Aided Creativity and computational creativity
    - Systems in which biologically inspired computation is used to
    promote the creativity of a human user;
    - New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
    - Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biologically
    inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
    approaches; the resulting artifacts;
    - Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;

    -- Automation
    - Techniques for automatic fitness assignment;
    - Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
    used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to produce
    novel objects;
    - Systems that resort to biologically inspired computation to perform
    the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types of
    artistic object;
