This special session on Metadata, welcomes distinguished speakers, will discuss the importance and variety of metadata for music information retrieval.
Abstracts of the presentations
Whether derived automatically from contents (audio, score...) by extracting a variety of features (samples, notes, melody, form, lyrics...), or produced manually by specialists (e.g., as in libraries), supplemented with such mechanisms as authority control, and put in relation with musical documents and documentation, very powerful music searching tools may be developed.
This session will also address the issues of creating, organizing, managing and using potentially very large collections of metadata, including the technical, economical/marketing and rights aspects.
