Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX)
MIREX represents an annual community-based MIR/MDL evaluation event where techniques and algorithms tailored to a variety of tasks are submitted by research laboratories from all over the world to IMIRSEL. These algorithms are then run along with standardized datasets, and evaluated using community-defined evaluation metrics. The evaluation results are published on a year basis and they are presented at the International Conference on Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR).
Networked Environment for Music Analysis (NEMA)
The NEMA framework is a multinational, multidisciplinary cyber-infrastructure project for music information processing that builds upon and extends the music information retrieval research being conducted by IMIRSEL in UIUC. NEMA brings together collective projects and the associated tools of multiple world leaders in the domains of MIR, Computational Musicology (CM) and e-humanities research. The NEMA team aims to create an open and extensible web-service based resource framework that facilitates the integration of music data and analytic/evaluative tools which can be used by the global MIR and CM research and education communities on a basis independent of time or location.
Structural Analysis of Large Amounts of Music Information (SALAMI)
SALAMI will analyse 23,000 hours of digitised music to build a resource for musicologists, based on the music’s underlying structure. It will use thousands of supercomputing hours, donated by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and draw on a bewildering range of music from the Internet Archive –from A Capella to Zydeco, Appalachia to Zambia, and Medieval to Post-Modern.
