WEDELMUSIC-2003 aims to explore these major topics in music-related fields, to address novel approaches for distributing music to larger audiences, providing wider access and encouraging broader participation. Legal aspects and the impact of these developments on cultural heritage will be considered, together with their availability to people with limited access to classical archives and libraries. In particular, proposals and solutions benefiting visually-impaired people are encouraged, to let everybody access this large and hidden cultural heritage. Tools for disabled people will contribute to broadening their music playing and enjoyment. The conference focuses on both the challenges posed by the Internet in its role as a major player for business changes and music distribution, as well as opportunities as a new infrastructure for enabling technology. In addition, this conference seeks to promote discussion and interaction between researchers, practitioners, developers and users of tools, technology transfer experts, and project managers. Of particular interest is the exchange of concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other results which could both contribute to the academic arena and also benefit business and the industrial community. WEDELMUSIC-2003 will bring together a variety of participants to address not only different technical issues, but also the impact of Internet on the preservation of cultural heritage. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following aspects: * Protection formats and tools for music * Transaction models for delivering music * Business models for publishers * Legal aspects * Copyright ownership protection * Watermarking techniques for various media types * Formats and models for distribution * High quality Audio Coding * Music manipulation and analysis * Music and tools for impaired people - Braille * Publishers and distributors servers * Multimedia streaming and delivery * MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 * Viewing and listening tools for music * Music editing and manipulation * Music education techniques * Databases for institutions: publishers, libraries, theatres, etc. * Content based retrieval * Conversion aspects, techniques and tools * Music imaging, music sheet digitalisation, techniques and tools * Music and pervasive computing * Music transcoding * Music and cultural heritage valorisation RESEARCH PAPERS ==================== Papers should describe original and significant work in the research and practice of the main topics listed above. Research case studies, applications and experiments are particularly welcome. Papers should be limited to approx. 2000-5000 words (8 pages) in length. Of the accepted paper, 8 pages will be published in the conference proceedings. SHORT PAPERS/POSTERS ==================== Shorter research papers on work-in-progress, interim results, advanced topic position paper and current research initiatives are also welcome. Submissions should be limited to approx. 2000 words (4 pages) in length. Of the accepted paper, 4 pages will be published in the conference proceedings. APPLICATIONS and INDUSTRIAL PAPERS ================================== Proposals for presentations of Applications and Tools are also welcome. These may consist of experience reports from actual utilisation of tools, industrial practice and models, or tool demonstrations. Application proposals will be reviewed based on their description and demo (if appropriate). A one-page summary of the accepted proposal will be published in the conference proceedings.
