EvoMUSART 2010

8th European Event on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music,  
Sound, Art and Design

7-9 April, 2010, Istanbul, Turkey



EvoMUSART 2010 is the eighth European Event on Evolutionary and  
Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design. Following the  
success of previous editions and the growth of interest in the field,  
the main goal of EvoMUSART 2010 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.

EvoMUSART 2010 will be held from 7-9 April, 2010 in Istanbul, Turkey  
as part of the European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary  
Computation, EvoApplications 2010.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference and  
included in the EvoApplications proceedings, published by Springer  
Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

EvoMUSART 2010 important dates are:

Submission deadline: November 4, 2009
Conference: 7-9 April, 2010


The papers should concern the use of bio-inspired techniques  
(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  

- Generation
     o Biologically Inspired Design and Art-Making Systems that create  
drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, objects,  
designs, webpages, buildings, etc.;
     o Biologically Inspired Sound-Generators and Music-Systems that  
create music, aggregate sound, or simulate instruments, voices,  
effects, 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 Comparative analysis and classification;
     o Validation methodologies;
     o New biologically inspired computation models in art, music and  
- Computer Aided Creativity
     o New ways of integrating users into evolutionary computation art  
and music frameworks;
     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 that exploit biologically inspired computation to  
analyze artistic objects and artifacts;


Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS  
format no later than November 4, 2009. Formatting instructions  
available at:


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 20 December 2009.

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 10 January 2010. The accepted papers will appear in the  
event proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be  
available at the event.
