WoRMS 2022 : 4th International Workshop on Reading Music Systems
Call For Papers
It is our pleasure to announce the 4th International Workshop on Reading Music Systems (WoRMS). It will take place on Friday, the 18th of November 2022. The workshop will be an online-only event in Zoom.
WoRMS is a workshop that tries to connect researchers who develop music reading systems — especially from the field of optical music recognition, but also related topics such as score following, score searching, or information retrieval from written music — with researchers and practitioners that could benefit from such systems, like practitioners, librarians or musicologists.
WoRMS will be organized as a one-day workshop and provides a great opportunity to share ideas, discuss current developments and shape the future of music reading systems. We would like for diverse points of view to engage, by explicitly inviting contributors without a technical background to participate as well.
The topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
Music reading systems
Optical music recognition
Datasets and performance evaluation
Image processing on music scores
Authoring, editing, storing and presentation systems for music scores
Novel input-methods for music to produce written music
Web-based Music Information Retrieval services
Applications and projects
Use-cases related to written music
We strive to make the workshop as interactive as possible, with participants getting the opportunity not just to present their work, but to discuss current research in depth and foster relationships within the community. Therefore, promising ideas, work-in-progress submissions and recently submitted or published works are equally welcome.
As a novelty of this edition, we welcome two types of contributions:
Scientific Paper: Scientific papers with original ideas, new approaches, or experiments from the field of Music Reading Systems. These papers may be up to 4+n pages.
Technical Report: Technical reports of successful applications, ongoing project reports, or use-cases from the field of Music Reading Systems. These reports may be up to 2+n pages.
Each accepted contribution will receive a 15-minute slot for presentation and discussion, independent of the type of contribution.
Deadline for submission: 30th September 2022
Notification of acceptance: 21st October 2022
Camera-ready: 11th November 2022
Workshop: 18th November 2022
