The Midwest Music and Audio Day is a one-day get together of music information and music audio processing researchers and artists, held at Northwestern University just outside of Chicago in Evanston, IL. This will be a chance for research groups and artists from the Midwest to meet and present their works in a more relaxed and more affordable setting than is typical at IEEE and ACM-style conferences. Registration is free. Opportunities to present work as posters/talks/demos/art works are available to registered participants. Parking and lunch will be provided free of charge for all presenters and attendees up a maximum of 50 registered attendees. Limited travel assistance funding will be available for long distance presenters in financial need.
