Join the ISMIR Community!
The first community mailing list was created at
ISMIR 2000 in order to allow for continued exchange in topics related to the field. As of February
2014, it has grown to over 1,800 subscribers from across the world, and routinely receives announcements
about conferences, career opportunities, concerts, and wide variety of other issues relevant to music information retrieval.
Noting the continued expansion of the community,
the mailing evolved into an ISMIR-operated Google group in February 2014.
Home of the current mailing list. To become a member, proceed to the group and select "Apply to join group",
or send an email to "email@example.com". Viewing or posting topics is open to the public; note, however,
that non-member messages are screened.
Music-IR Archive (coming soon):
A browsable archive of a decade of postings to the initial ISMIR mailing list, Music-IR,
graciously created and operated by IRCAM for over a decade.
Online Database and Paper Proceedings
list of all past papers and posters is available with direct access to the
PDF file when available. The type is PAP (for refereed paper), INV (for invited
paper) and POS (for poster). The thumbnails at the bottom allow one to select a
list sorted by author or by year.
As of ISMIR 2003, almost all presentations
are also available -- see the individual conference sites to
access them. Additionally,
proceedings may still be available for past conferences. Information on how
to buy past proceedings is available here.

Have Anything To Contribute?
An effort is currently underway to centralize the efforts and output
of the greater ISMIR community though this website, and transform it into the virtual center of the field.
Therefore, if you know of any relevant content ---your lab, company, teaching materials or algorithms,
to name just a few--- please let us know about it via this Google Form.
Though there is no deadline, the eventual page rank will be loosely determined by the order in which
submissions are received.
ISMIR was incorporated in Canada on July 4, 2008. It was
