Keynote Speakers:

Computational simulation of musical creativity is an emerging, exciting and significant area of research. In the last few years, numerous systems that compose, improvise and perform music have been developed. These systems pose several theoretical and technical challenges, and are the result of an interdisciplinary effort that encompasses the domains of  music, artificial intelligence, cognitive science and philosophy.

The main goal of this conference is to bring together scholars from different backgrounds, interested in virtual emulation of musical creativity, providing an interdisciplinary platform to promote, present and discuss their work.

The conference is organised and hosted by the Open University. For enquiries, please contact programme chair Robin Laney (robin.laney@open.ac.uk) or Simon Cutajar (simon.cutajar@open.ac.uk).
