                        FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS


                        SBM2009- Social Behavior in Music
                        Vancouver, Canada, August 29, 2009

Workshop in the framework of IEEE Intl. SocialCom-09 Conference

Music making and listening are a clear example of human activities that
are above  all interactive and social. On the one hand, however, nowadays
mediated music making and listening is usually still a passive,
non-interactive, non-context sensitive, and non-social experience. The
current electronic technologies have not yet been able to support and
promote these essential aspects. On the other hand, new mediated forms of
sharing music experience in a social context with local or remote users or
as a part of a community are emerging. At the same time we observe an
increasing need for paradigms for embodied and active experience of music
where non-verbal communication channels, and in particular movement and
gesture, play a central role.
This workshop focuses on the social signals and their features that are
most significant for a qualitative and quantitative analysis of social
behavior and experience in music. The workshop will discuss computational
models, algorithms, techniques for analysis of social behavior in music,
their application in concrete test-beds, and their evaluation in
experimental set-ups. We are interested in exploring many-to-many human
interplay, such as the performer-listener, performer-performer, and
listener-listener interaction, in novel scenarios where the distinction
between listeners and performers fades out and users become producers and
consumers of music experience.

We encourage papers and demos addressing fundamental research issues
including,  but not limited to, the following topics:

- theoretical approaches to social behavior in music
- experimental methodologies for analysis of social behavior in music -
computational models of social behavior in music
- analysis of social signals in music
- synchronization of human behavior in music
- analysis of social roles in performers and listeners groups
- analysis of attention and salience in social music experiences
- multimodal interfaces for active and social music experience
- cooperative social environments for participative music experience -
multi-user systems and application for social music experience

Submissions should follow the IEEE conference paper  format.
Submissions should include: title, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail
address(es), tel/fax number(s), and postal address(es).
