The first edition of the International Workshop on Multilayer Music Representation and Processing (MMRP19) will take place in Milano, Italy, 24-25 January 2019, and will be organized by the ▸Laboratory of Music Informatics (LIM), Dept. of Computer Science, University of Milan. The workshop will be hosted in the newly established department building, at the core of the scientific campus.
The Workshop Proceedings will be published with an ISBN indexing number
MMRP19 is endorsed by the IEEE Standards Association, and we have applied to IEEExplore publishing system. Further details will be provided as soon as possible.
The workshop is held in conjunction with the kick-off of the IEEE Working Group (WG) for XML Musical Application. Ten years after the release of the IEEE 1599-2008™ Standard for music representation, the WG will work at updating and extending the standard to provide a multilayered meta-representation of music information, achieving integration among general (metadata), structural, notational, computer-driven performance, and audio layers.
