From MIREX Wiki

Welcome to MIREX 2024

After a break of 3 years, we want to bring back the MIREX (Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange) competition starting from 2024. We want to bring in new tasks, benchmarks, and datasets in response to the rapid development of computer music research.

The MIREX community will hold its annual meeting as part of The International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference. This year, the conference will be held in San Francisco, CA, USA and online from November 10–14, 2024.

In a long run, we want to make MIREX a platform for researchers to share their latest research results, to compare their systems with others, and to promote the development of the field.

MIREX 2024 Evaluation Tasks

We will start with a small set of tasks and will expand the list based on the community's feedback. We also welcome volunteers for task leaders. The following tasks are currently planned for MIREX 2024:

Traditional MIR tasks

Modern MIR tasks

We also invite proposals for new challenges in MIR. For details, see 2024:Call for Challenges.

Call for Challenges

Starting from MIREX 2024, we invite proposals for challenges addressing new research problems from the ISMIR community. These challenges should aim to push the boundaries of current research and foster innovation within the field of music information retrieval.

For the format and requirements for the challenge proposal, please go to 2024:Call for Challenges.

How to Participate

  • Read the task descriptions and the submission guidelines (coming soon).
  • Wrap your system in a Docker container. Required dependencies should be specified in the Dockerfile. Make sure to keep the I/O format consistent with the task description.
  • Write a 2-3 page extended abstract PDF describing your system.
  • Submit your system and the extended abstract to the new submission portal (coming soon).

Important Dates

  • Challenge proposals due: Aug 7, 2024
  • Notification of acceptance for challenge proposals: Aug 14, 2024
  • Submissions due: TBA
