First International Workshop on Semantic Music and Media (SMAM2013)

October 21st or 22nd, 2013, in Sydney, Australia. Collocated with the
12th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2013)

Submission deadline: July 12th, 2013
Notification of acceptance: August 9th, 2013

Submissions via:


The SMAM workshop at ISWC 2013 provides a forum to explore and promote
the applications of Semantic Web Technologies in the domain of music
and time-based media. Emerging activities in research, development and
production, driven by projects in both academia and industry, are
already spanning many aspects of the creation, management, discovery,
delivery and analysis of musical and media content. This workshop
brings together this community to share information and practice, and
especially to articulate the research agenda in Semantic Music and
Media, e.g. "end-to-end semantics" through the lifecycle of digital
media. This workshop aims at facilitating innovation and helping to
achieve the full potential of Semantic Web in this domain, as well as
informing Semantic Web research and its application to this area.


We welcome the following types of contributions:

 * Full research papers: up to 10 pages long, these papers will be
assigned a presentation slot during the workshop followed by a

 * Position papers: up to 4 pages long, these papers will be assigned
a short presentation slot followed by a discussion
 * Demo papers: up to 4 pages long, these papers will demonstrate a
specific application of Semantic Web technologies to music or
time-based media. They will be presented during a demonstration
session at the workshop.

All submissions must be in PDF format and must follow the LNCS style.
Contributions must be submitted through the SMAM2013 EasyChair page.
Submissions are not anonymous. Accepted papers will be published
online on this web site and via CEUR-WS.

The papers must be submitted before July 12th, 2013.
