Submission Deadline: 5 November 2005

EvoMUSART 2006 is the fourth workshop of the EvoNet working group on
Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events
and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART
2006 is to bring together researchers who are using Evolutionary
Computation for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to promote,
present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

The workshop will be held from 10-12 April, 2006 in Budapest,
Hungary, as part of the EuroGP&EvoCOP2006 event.

Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included
in the EuroGP2006 conference proceedings, published by Springer
Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

This year, the exhibition component of the workshop is entitled
“Process Revealed”, and focuses on the disclosure and explanation of
the processes involved in artistic creation. “Process revealed”
considers the generative, the algorithmic and the evolved in
relation to analytical, performative possibilities. The submission
of works for “Process Revealed” is independent from the submission
of papers.

The papers should include original and unpublished contributions related
the use of EC in the scope of the analysis, generation and interpretation
of art and music. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Generation
     o Evolutionary Art ­ Systems that create drawings, images, animations,
sculptures, poetry, text, etc.;
     o Evolutionary Music ­ Systems that create musical pieces, sounds,
instruments, voices, etc.;
     o Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
- Analysis and Interpretation
     o Systems that resort to EC to perform the analysis of image, music,
sound sculpture, or some other types of artistic object;
     o Systems in which the analysis of artworks is used in conjunction
with EC techniques to produce novel objects;
- Computer Aided Creativity
     o Systems in which EC is used to promote the creativity of a human
     o New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
     o Collaborative distributed environments;
- Theory
     o Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;
     o Validation methodologies;
     o New models designed to promote the creative potential of EC;
     o Aesthetics, emotional response;
     o Studies on the applicability of these techniques to other
creativity-related areas;
