        Subject: MIREX 2012: Open for Submissions

Dear Colleagues:

The 2012 Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX) 
submission system is now open!

IMPORTANT DATES:

We have two sets of deadlines for submissions. We have to stagger the 
deadlines because of runtime and human evaluation considerations.

Tasks with a 20 August 2012 deadline:

     Audio Classification (Train/Test) Tasks
     Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval
     Symbolic Melodic Similarity

Tasks with a 27 August 2012 deadline:

     All remaining MIREX 2012 tasks.

Nota Bene: In the past we have been rather flexible about deadlines. 
This year, however, we simply do not have the time flexibility, sorry.

Please, please, please, let's start getting those submissions made. The 
sooner we have the code, the sooner we can start running the evaluations.

PS: If you have a slower running algorithm, help us help you by getting 
your code in ASAP. Please do pay attention to runtime limits.

CONTACT INFORMATION:

The EvalFest mailing list, <evalfest at lists.lis.illinois.edu>, is our 
primary point of communication. For personal questions, please contact 
the MIREX 2012 Team at <mirex at imirsel.org>.
