DMRN+13: Digital Music Research Network One-day Workshop 2018

Queen Mary University of London

Tuesday 18th December 2018






Keynote speaker

  • To be confirmed


Digital music is an important and fast-moving research area. Sophisticated digital tools for the creation, generation and dissemination of music have established clear synergies between music and leisure industries, the use of technology within art, the creative industries and the creative economy. Digital music research is emerging as a "transdiscipline" across the usual academic boundaries of computer science, electronic engineering and music.

The Digital Music Research Network (DMRN) aims to promote research in the area of Digital Music, by bringing together researchers from universities and industry in electronic engineering, computer science, and music.

DMRN will be holding its next 1-day workshop on Tuesday 18th December 2018. The workshop will include invited and contributed talks, and posters will be on display during the day, including during the lunch and coffee breaks.

The workshop will be an ideal opportunity for networking with other people working in the area. There will also be an opportunity to continue discussions after the Workshop in a nearby Pub/Restaurant.


Call for Contributions

You are invited to submit a proposal for a talk and/or a poster to be presented at this event.

TALKS may range from the latest research, through research overviews or surveys, to opinion pieces or position statements, particularly those likely to be of interest to an interdisciplinary audience.  Short announcements about other items of interest (e.g., future events or other networks) are also welcome.

POSTERS can be on any research topic of interest to the members of the network. Posters (A0 portrait) will be on display through the day, including lunch break and coffee breaks.

Each poster must fit on a poster board that is 3 feet (91.4 cm) wide and 6 feet (182.9 cm) tall. However, posters should not reach down to the floor as this makes them hard to read. Posters should therefore be no more than 85 cm (33.5 in) wide and no more than 119 cm (46.9 in) tall (i.e., no larger than A0 portrait or A1 landscape).
IMPORTANT: Posters wider than the stated dimensions will not fit on the poster boards. A0 landscape is TOO WIDE.
