Welcome to the 20th annual conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR)!

ISMIR is the world’s leading research forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data  For the 20th anniversary of the conference, we are honored to welcome you to the beautiful city of Delft, The Netherlands, where the conference will take place from November 4-8, 2019.
