Music Informatics and Cognition

PhD student Andrew McLeod is organising the first UK Music Informatics and Cognition (MIC) workshop of its kind.

The event will take place 1-7pm Wednesday 20th July 2016, in the Informatics Forum, in room 4.31.

Speakers include Emmanouil Benetos (Queen Mary), Tillman Weyde (City) and Stephanie Shih (California, Merced).

Andrew says:

“Computational methods play an important role in modelling human cognitive processing of music, as well as unlocking practical applications such as music retrieval and transcription. This workshop, focused on data-driven methods for music analysis, brings together UK researchers to share different perspectives and disciplinary approaches to music in a computational and/or cognitive context.”
