CfP: 2nd IEEE FRUCT International Workshop on Semantic Audio and the Internet of Things

[CfP: IEEE FRUCT ISAI19, Deadline: 11 February 2019, Workshop: 10-11 April 2019, Moscow, Russia]

The 2nd IEEE FRUCT International Workshop on Semantic Audio and the Internet of Things

Building on the success of the 1st workshop, we welcome you to take part in the Second IEEE FRUCT International Workshop on Semantic Audio and the Internet of Things (ISAI19) that will be held in Moscow (Russia) on 10-11 April 2019, in conjunction with FRUCT24.


Semantic Audio is a research area devoted to the application of Semantic Web technologies to music and audio in general. The extraction of meaningful information through audio analysis yields metadata that different application areas may take advantage of. Music information retrieval, environmental sound recognition and event detection, audio production, gaming and intelligent live performance tools such as smart instruments are a few examples among numerous applications in this domain. A wider research area, with a stronger link with Semantic Audio is the Internet of Things. The latter may exploit Semantic Audio methodologies to process audio signals produced by sensors, the main building blocks of IoT applications, for instance, in environments such as smart buildings or smart cities. Vice versa, Semantic Audio may benefit from IoT and its native propensity to interoperability, as in the case of the Internet of Musical Things (IoMuT), to explore new ways of producing and accessing musical content, or new ways of using audio for sensing and control in smart environments.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following subject areas:

• Speech and environmental audio processing and analysis for the Internet of Things
• Audio signal processing and feature extraction in the IoT
• Semantic audio description and ontologies
• Semantic Web and Linked Data for audio
• Music informatics and retrieval in networked environments
• Internet of Musical Things
• IoT technologies in professional audio production and delivery
• Collaborative creation of audio content in a network
• Applications in gaming, entertainment, education, etc.

We welcome researchers as well as industry stakeholders to submit papers and take part in the workshop to share their research and findings. Early registration is a cost effective way to participate in the Workshop and the 23rd FRUCT conference. All workshop papers will be published Open Access in FRUCT proceeding at no additional cost (available for free under a CC BY-ND license download from FRUCT proceedings catalog). The workshop posters and demos can be presented on the FRUCT24 Demo Session on 11 April 2019.
