Welcome to MIRUM '11!

The First International ACM Workshop on Music Information Retrieval with User-Centered and Multimodal Strategies (MIRUM) will be held as a full-day event on November 30, 2011, in conjunction with ACM Multimedia, held from November 28 - December 1 in Scottsdale, AZ, USA. The workshop aims to gather experts from the Music Information Retrieval community and neighboring fields at a premier multimedia venue, to initiate a cross-disciplinary dialogue on open challenges in the field of Music Information Retrieval with user-centered and/or multimodal strategies.

In Latin, 'mirum' (roughly pronounced as mee-room) means 'wondrous'. In many musical settings of the Requiem Mass, the Dies Irae hymn describing the end of times plays an important role. At one point in this hymn, there is talk about a 'tuba, mirum spargens sonum': a trumpet scattering a wondrous sound across the lands to gather all souls before the Last Judgment Throne.
