The Multimedia and Music-IR research communities have traditionally not been very much involved with one another. In some cases, domain- or data-specific approaches may indeed be needed. In other cases, related topics and challenges may be pursued that would benefit from increased cross-domain cooperation.

In this panel discussion, experts from both the Multimedia and Music-IR communities will be featured, addressing a.o. the following questions:

  • Why are audio and music typically under-represented in Multimedia venues?
  • In which aspects can the Music-IR community benefit from expertise or ongoing work in the Multimedia community and vice versa?
  • Are there any 'grand challenges' in the respective fields that actually address issues beyond the fields themselves?
