Thank you for your interest in submitting a late-breaking & demo (LBD) extended abstract for ISMIR 2017.

Submission Guidelines

  • A submission should be an extended abstract describing a preliminary result, idea, application, or a demo of a new product or technology of interest to the Music-IR community.
  • Submissions should be one page (preferred) or two pages (maximum) of content including bibliography.
  • All LBD extended abstracts are required to be presented by one of the authors as a poster (and optionally a live demo) on the last day of ISMIR 2017 (October 27th). Posters must use portrait orientation and be no larger than A0 or 36 x 48 inch.
  • Submission will be open until 11:59 pm SST (UTC -11) on October 22nd, 2017. Please note that if you are submitting something which is very late-breaking, you will still be expected to present it as a poster during the LBD session.
  • Submissions should not be anonymised.
  • All submissions will undergo a light peer review.
  • Make sure to use the templates (available for LaTeX and Word). Submissions must be in PDF format. If you’re using Word, save the Word document as a PDF. If you’re using LaTeX, you should have a PDF already.
