EvoMUSART 2008

6th European Workshop on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
Music, Sound, Art and Design

26-28 March, 2008, Naples, Italy


The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of
artistic systems is a new and exciting area of research. There is a
growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields
such as visual art and music generation, sound analysis and
synthesis, architecture, video, poetry, and design.

EvoMUSART 2008 is the sixth 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
2008 is to bring together researchers who are using biologically
inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to
promote, present and discuss ongoing work in this area.

The workshop will be held from 26-28 March, 2008 in Naples, Italy as
part of the EvoStar event.

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 biologically inspired
techniques - e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life,
Artificial Neural Networks, 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 Biologically Inspired Design and Art -Systems that create drawings,images,
animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs, webpages, buildings, etc.;
o Biologically Inspired Sound and Music -Systems that create musical pieces,
sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound analisys, 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 biologically
inspired computation;
- Computer Aided Creativity
o Systems in which biologically 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 biologically
inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
approaches; the resulting artifacts;
o Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;
- Automation
o Techniques for automated fitness assignment;
o Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
used in conjunction with biologically inspired techniques to produce
novel objects;
o Systems that exploit biologically 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,11855,5-164-2-72376-0,00.html)
no later than November 1, 2007.

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, 2007.

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, 2008. The accepted papers will appear in
the workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which
will be available at the workshop.
