International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference, 2012.


During the last day of the ISMIR 2012 conference there were two events related to Music IR Evaluation. A panel took place during the morning to discuss several issues concerning the various evaluation initiatives with the general audience at ISMIR. A late-breaking session during the afternoon kept the discussion alive between a group of researchers who wanted to dig deeper into these issues. This extended abstract reports the main topics covered during this short session and the general thoughts that came up.
