EvoMUSART 2007

5th European Workshop on Evolutionary Music and Art

11-13 April, 2007, Valencia, Spain

EVOSTAR 	http://www.evostar.org/

The use of biological 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; and design.

EvoMUSART 2007 is the fifth workshop of the EvoNet working group on
Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events
and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART
2007 is to bring together researchers who are using biological
inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to
promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

The workshop will be held from 11-13 April, 2007 in Valencia, Spain,
as part of the Evo* event.

The event includes the exhibition "ArtEscapes: Variations of Life in the
Media Arts", (http://evonet.lri.fr/TikiWiki/tiki-index.php?page=ArtEscapes)
giving an opportunity for the presentation of evolutionary
art and music. The submission of art works for the exhibition session
is independent from the submission of papers.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included
in the EvoWorkshops proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The papers should concern the use of biological inspired techniques -
e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence,
etc. - 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
	o Biological Inspired Art - Systems that create drawings, images,
	animations, sculptures, poetry, text, etc.;
	o Biological Inspired Music - Systems that create musical pieces,
	sounds, instruments, voices, etc.;
	o Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
	o Other related generative techniques;
- Theory
	o Computational Aesthetics, Emotional Response, Surprise, Novelty;
	o Representation techniques;
	o Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
	  of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;
	o Validation methodologies;
	o Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;
	o New models designed to promote the creative potential of biological
	  inspired computation;
- Computer Aided Creativity
	o Systems in which biological inspired computation is used to promote
	  the creativity of a human user;
	o New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
	o Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biological
	  inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
	  approaches; the resulting artifacts;
	o Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;
- Automation
	o Techniques for automatic fitness assignment;
	o Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
	  used in conjunction with biological inspired techniques to produce
	  novel objects;
	o Systems that resort to biological inspired computation to perform
	  the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types
	  of artistic object;

Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS
format (instructions downloadable from
no later than November 1, 2006.

The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of
the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the
results of the review by December 15, 2006.

The reviewing process is double blind.
Authors should remove their names from submitted papers, and avoid statements
and references that would identify the authors.

Papers must be submitted using the conference management software.
Please follow the instructions in:

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the
basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera
ready version of their manuscripts, along with text sources and
pictures, by January 8, 2007. The accepted papers will appear in the
workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be
available at the workshop.
