Call for late-breaking/demo contributions

Prototype systems, initial concepts, and early results which have not yet fully matured but are of interest to the Music-IR community may be submitted to the Late-Breaking/Demo (LBD) session.

Those interested should submit extended abstracts (2 pages maximum, one column each, see new template below) through the submission system. Said abstracts will go through a light review (mostly to ensure that they follow the styling guidelines), and those accepted must be presented as posters during the LBD session on the last day of ISMIR 2019. Please note that extended abstract is not a conference paper. Therefore, it will not be part of the official ISMIR 2019 proceedings, and should not be cited as such.

We also accept early submission to accommodate researchers who need more time to apply for a visa. The LBD session has a maximum capacity of 50 posters. Submissions will be reviewed on a first come first served basis. Thus, submission will close by the dates mentioned below or by reaching full capacity, whichever comes first. Full capacity for early submission will be capped at 25. The remaining slots will be reserved for the regular submission.

Submission Guidelines

  • A submission should be an extended abstract describing a preliminary result, idea, application, or a demo of a new product or technology of interest to the Music-IR community.

  • Submissions should be two pages (maximum) of content including bibliography. Only 3 sections are allowed in the LBD: “Extended Abstract”, “Acknowledgments” and “References”. Please follow the guidelines in the template (linked below).

  • All LBD extended abstracts are required to be presented by one of the authors as a poster (and optionally a live demo) on the last day of ISMIR 2019 (November 8th). Posters must use portrait orientation and be no larger than A0 or 36 x 48 inch.

  • Submission will be open until 11:59 pm AoE on September 23rd, 2019. Please note that if you are submitting something which is very late-breaking, you will still be expected to present it as a poster during the LBD session.

  • Submissions should not be anonymised.

  • All submissions will undergo a light peer review, mostly to ensure styling guidelines. If the paper does not follow the guidelines, it will be sent back to the authors through a “Request for revision”.

  • Make sure to use the templates (available for LaTex and Word). Submissions must be in PDF format. If you’re using Word, save the Word document as a PDF. If you’re using LaTeX, you should have a PDF already.

  • The submission system is the same as the one used for the main proceedings: Microsoft CMT. Note: this link will not be accepting submissions until July 26, 2019.
