* *

*Following the success of previous events and the importance of the field
of evolutionary and biologically inspired music, sound, art and design,
evomusart has become an evo***** conference with independent proceedings.
Thus, evo**musart** 2013 is the eleventh European Event and the second
International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music,
Sound, Art and Design.*

* *

*The use of biologically inspired techniques for the development of
artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research.
There is a growing interest in the application of these techniques in
fields such as: visual art and music generation, analysis, and
interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; design; and
other creative tasks.*

* *

*The main goal of evo**musart **2013 is to bring together researchers who
are using biologically inspired computer techniques for artistic tasks,
providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in
the area.*

* *

*The event will be held from 3-5 April, 2013 in Vienna, Austria as part of
the evo***** event.*

* *

*Submissions will be rigorously reviewed for scientific and artistic merit.
Accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters at the event and
included in the evomusart proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in a
dedicated volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The
acceptance rate at evomusart 2012 was 34.9% for papers accepted for oral
presentation, or 46.5% for oral and poster presentation combined.*

* *

*Topics of interest*

* *

*Submissions should concern the use of biologically inspired computer
techniques -- e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Artificial
Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence, other artificial intelligence
techniques -- in the generation, analysis and interpretation of art, music,
design, architecture and other artistic fields. **Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:*

* *


=B7       *Biologically Inspired Design and Art -- Systems that create
drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, designs, webpages,
buildings, etc.;*

musical pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, sound effects, sound analysis,

=B7       *Robotic-Based Evolutionary Art and Music;*

perform the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types
of artistic object.*
