MIREX 2010 Deadline Dates

We have very tight scheduling constraints this year because of the early convening of ISMIR 2010 in Utrecht.

We have two sets of deadlines for submissions. We have to stagger the deadlines because of runtime and human evaluation considerations.

Tasks with a 25 June 2010 deadline:

  1. Audio Classification (Train/Test) Tasks
  2. Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval
  3. Symbolic Melodic Similarity

Tasks with a 2 July 2010 deadline:

  1. All remaining MIREX 2010 tasks.

Nota Bene: In the past we have been rather flexible about deadlines. This year, however, we simply do not have the time flexibility, sorry.

Please, please, please, let's start getting those submissions made. The sooner we have the code, the sooner we can start running the evaluations.

PS: If you have a slower running algorithm, help us help you by getting your code in ASAP. Please do pay attention to runtime limits.

MIREX 2010 Submission Instructions

MIREX 2010 Evaluation Tasks

The IMIRSEL team at UIUC solicited proposals for evaluation tasks to be performed at the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange 2010 (MIREX 2010) and polled the community on their likelihood of participation in each task. A summary of the responses from the community is given below:

Results as of Monday 24th May 2010:

Total individual responses = 74

Task # of 'Very likely' submissions # of 'Somewhat likely' submissions Total
Audio Test/Train tasks 19 11 30
Audio Cover Song Identification 6 10 16
Audio Tag Classification 6 10 16
Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval 12 11 23
Symbolic Music Similarity and Retrieval 4 5 9
Audio Onset detection 11 9 20
Audio Key detection 5 8 13
Real-time Audio to Score Alignment (a.k.a Score Following) 4 5 9

Audio Beat Tracking 9 8 17
Audio Structural Segmentation 9 15 24
Total 117 117 234

Hence, the IMIRSEL team has decided to attempt the running of the following tasks at MIREX 2010:

    • Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval
    • Symbolic Melodic Similarity
  • 2nd July: Rolling MIREX submission system closures for all the remaining MIREX 2010 tasks.
  • 15th July 2010: MIREX results posting begins
  • 1st August 2010: All MIREX results posted (somewhat hopeful target date)
  • 2-6th August 2010: USMIR Summer School
  • 9-13th August 2010: ISMIR conference

Note to New Participants

Please take the time to read the following review article that explains the history and structure of MIREX.

Note to All Participants

Because MIREX is premised upon the sharing of ideas and results, ALL MIREX participants are expected to:

  1. submit a DRAFT 2-3 page extended abstract PDF in the ISMIR format about the submitted programme(s) to help us and the community better understand how the algorithm works when submitting their programme(s).
  2. submit a FINALIZED 2-3 page extended abstract PDF in the ISMIR format prior to ISMIR 2010 for posting on the respective results pages (sometimes the same abstract can be used for multiple submissions; in many cases the DRAFT and FINALIZED abstracts are the same)
  3. present a poster at the MIREX 2010 poster session at ISMIR 2010 (Wednesday, 11 August 2010)

Software Dependency Requests

If you have not submitted to MIREX before or are unsure whether IMIRSEL/NEMA currently supports some of the software/architecture dependencies for your submission a dependency request form is available. Please submit details of your dependencies on this form and the IMIRSEL team will attempt to satisfy them for you. Credit Repair

Due to the high volume of submissions expected at MIREX 2010, submissions with difficult to satisfy dependencies that the team has not been given sufficient notice of may result in the submission being rejected. bancuri noi

Finally, you will also be expected to detail your software/architecture dependencies in a README file to be provided to the submission system.signalsforex

Getting Involved in MIREX 2010

MIREX is a community-based endeavour. Be a part of the community and help make MIREX 2010 the best yet.

Mailing List Participation

If you are interested in formal MIR evaluation, you should also subscribe to the link building service "MIREX" (aka "EvalFest") mail list and participate in the community discussions about defining and running MIREX 2010 tasks. Subscription information at: EvalFest Central.

If you are participating in MIREX 2010, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you are subscribed to EvalFest. Deadlines, task updates and other important information will be announced via this mailing list. Please use the EvalFest for discussion of MIREX task proposals and other MIREX related issues. This wiki (MIREX 2010 wiki) will be used to embody and disseminate task proposals, however, task related discussions should be conducted on the MIREX organization mailing list (EvalFest) rather than on this wiki, but should be summarized here.

Where possible, definitions or example code for new evaluation metrics or tasks should be provided to the IMIRSEL team who will embody them in software as part of the NEMA analytics framework, which will be released to the community at or before ISMIR 2010 - providing a standardised set of interfaces and output to disciplined evaluation procedures for a great many MIR tasks.

Wiki Participation

Please note that you may need to create a NEW login for this wiki even if you have a login that you previously used for editing the MIREX 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009 wikis.

However, starting in 2010 the MIREX wikis have been merged so that logins will persist for future iterations of MIREX.

Please create an account via: Special:Userlogin.

Please note that because of "spam-bots", MIREX wiki registration requests may be moderated by IMIRSEL members. It might take up to 24 hours for approval (Thank you for your patience!).
