Fwd: BCMI 2015 - 1st International Workshop on Brain-Computer Music Interfacing, Plymouth UK

Dear all,

(apologies for cross-posting)

We are very pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 1st
International Workshop on Brain-Computer Music Interfacing, 15 June
2015 at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research
(ICCMR), Plymouth University UK.

* The workshop is a satellite of the 11th International Symposium
on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research - CMMR 2015: Music, Mind,
and Embodiment, which will take place at Plymouth University,
Plymouth, UK, on 16-19 June 2015. Attendance to both events is
strongly encouraged. For more information on CMMR 2015 please visit

* The workshop will coincide with the publication of a new book by
Springer entitled Guide to Brain-Computer Music Interfacing, edited by
Eduardo R. Miranda and Julien Castet.

* Prof David Rosenboom, the pioneer from CalArts, California
Institute of the Arts, is set to perform at the workshop and deliver a
CMMR 2015 keynote

We are inviting submissions for papers, demonstrations and performance
pieces. Submission deadline: 27th Feb 2015

Key topics of interest in this context include (but not necessarily
restricted to):

* Designing BCMI systems for harnessing of creative musical
control and expression
* Applications of hybrid neurotechnology, either integrating
multiple BCI techniques or combining BCI with external signals such as
bio-signals, gestural data, and other forms of control data
* Bridging the links between neurotechnology and acoustic music
* Key areas where BCMI technologies are brought out of the
laboratory environment and integrated with contemporary music
technology in professional and consumer platforms
* Creative strategies for mapping brainwaves to music
* Innovative methods of real-time classification of brainwaves for
music generation
* Novel methods of brainwave sonification to benefit understanding
of patterns in EEG for medical or artistic purposes
