Call for Participation

The Conference on AI and Music Creativity is an annual conference bringing together a community working on the application of AI in music practice. The AI and Music research focus is highly interdisciplinary with topics ranging from performance systems, computational creativity, machine listening, robotics, sonification, and more.

The theme of AIMC 2024 is Interconnections between Music AI and other fields, where we are interested in how the Music AI community considers connections and intersections with other fields of research and practice. We encourage authors, composers, performers, and artists to examine the intersection between their work in AI and other fields – see below for indicative topics. We encourage contributions that articulate not only how other fields inform Music AI research and practice, but how Music AI contributes or may contribute to other fields.

Submission Tracks

All submissions will be created on pubpub.org while the review process will be handled through EasyChair. Detailed instructions about the process will be available under the Call tab in the conference webpages (link above).


Papers are up to 5000 words, not including Abstract, Acknowledgements, Ethics Statement, or References. Please consider the list of indicative topics for the conference. We encourage multimedia embedded in the paper, so pictures, illustrations, videos, sound files and <iframes>. We also encourage links to code repositories. Submitted works should be original, i.e. not published elsewhere or under review. The word count is for the article’s main text. It does not include title, abstract, acknowledgement, ethics statement, references, or appendices.

Paper submissions should demonstrate rigorous research methodology and will be evaluated according to their novelty, academic quality, appropriateness, importance, readability, ethical standards and paper organisation.

  • Authors names should be excluded from the front matter and in all references (e.g. replace with XXX XXX).
  • Supplementary materials referenced in footnotes and links such as GitHub repositories should be uploaded to an anonymous account. The author’s account(s) can be used for the camera ready.
  • Authors can indicate preference for presentation (15 minutes) or poster.

Workshops and Tutorials

We invite proposals for workshops and tutorials. These sessions should be interactive and focus on new technologies, systems or artistic practices. Proposals should specify the number of participants who can be accommodated and the duration (e.g. hour, half day, full day) and indicate the skills, experiences or artefacts that participants will come out with.

Submission Details:

  • Workshop or Tutorial session title
  • List of contributors
  • Name/Affiliation and a 150-word biography for each contributor
  • A 800-1000 word (excluding references) description (including an abstract) that should detail
    • Review contextualising the practice field relevant to your work.
    • Methods taken in developing the work
    • The hands-on nature of the workshop/tutorial (e.g. how will this be distinct from a long presentation)
  • A technical rider detailing:
    • Technical equipment you will provide
    • Technical equipment which you will require
    • Setup details such as tables, space requirements, power, visuals, audio.
    • Proposed duration
    • Any accessibility requirements.
  • Other documentation (web links etc)


We plan three concerts as part of the conference. Details of submission will be published in January.
