Official Submission/Discussion website for the ISMIR'2013 "Demos and Late-breaking" track.


This year, we continue to change everything.

We think you should read this, whether you're already a presenter at ISMIR 2013,

but also if you've had an article rejected for the main track or if you were not planning on presenting anything at all.

This may change your mind.


Please have a Look at and Contribute to this Year's Program


In recent years, the demos and late-breaking results (D&L) track were a smaller version of the conference's main track, where papers were submitted and presented in the traditional manner.

Last year, though, we tried something new. Held on the last day of the conference, the D&L had an 'unconference' style. There were no formal submission and no peer-review.

The program was built by participants before the event and during the event. And it was a great blast, in the best sense of the word!! Revisit last year's edition in pictures: http://wwwiti.cs.uni-magdeburg.de/~stober/photos/2012/10_ISMIR/Ismir2012late/

Following last year's success, this edition (which will be held on Friday, November 8th) will have a similar 'unconference' style. No formal submissions and no peer-review. The purpose of the D&L event is to bring a full week of tutorials and presentations to a close by encouraging interaction and last-minute ideas over formal and well-prepared talks.

This does not compromise on quality. In fact, all presented sessions during the D&L event will have the opportunity to be published and indexed on ismir.net as a full paper available for citation. Moreover, this website is an attempt to replace, for this session, the usual anonymous peer-review process by open commentaries and suggestions by the community. This is likely to be more valuable that if we'd kept this anonymous.

Last year we asked many of you attending ISMIR 2012 to fill in some small surveys in order to get your feedback about the event. Based on that feedback, we wrote a small report that has been published on the track 37.2 of the Computer Music Journal (http://www.mitpressjournals.org/doi/abs/10.1162/COMJ_r_00171).

This year we want to build upon the success of last year's event, and keep improving. We set up this wiki so that you MIR researchers could contribute with interesting ideas to discuss with other colleagues. As you already know, your participation and your feedback is the key to the success of this session.

So bring in the interesting stuff. The half-baked. The not-quite-there-yet. The outrightly rejected. If it has an audience, we're taking it.

Come play with us.
