             From: "J. Stephen Downie" <jdownie@UIUC.EDU>
             Subject: ISMIR 2002: Panel I: Music Information Retrieval
    Evaluation Frameworks

    Dear friends and colleagues:

    I have the pleasure of announcing that Dr. Edie Rasmussen has consented
    to be the keynote presenter at the 3rd International Conference on Music
    Information Retrieval (ISMIR 2002, http://ismir2002.ircam.fr), Panel on
    Music Information Retrieval Evaluation Frameworks (17 October 2002).
    Professor Rasmussen's biographical information is attached below. I
    think you will agree with me that Dr. Rasmussen will be bringing to the
    panel session an extra-special expertise on evaluation from which the
    Music Information Retrieval (MIR) and Music Digital Library (MDL)
    communities will greatly benefit.

    I would like to take this time to prompt all into considering the
    submission of a White Paper on MIR/MDL evaluation. As
    many of you know, we recently held an MIR/MDL valuation workshop at JCDL
    2002 in Portland, Oregon. The White Papers and Dr. Ellen Voorhees'
    excellent keynote presentation from the JCDL meeting are available at:


    The ISMIR 2002 Panel on MIR Evaluation is intended to build upon and
    extend the findings of the JCDL meeting. To get a better sense of how
    the pieces fit together (i.e., the White Papers, the JCDL meeting, the
    ISMIR 2002 Panel and the final set of recommendations) please consult:


    The White Papers and the Panel session are strongly linked but not
    wholly bound together. That is, it is possible--encouraged actually--to
    submit a White Paper even though you cannot attend the meeting in Paris:
    this way, attendees will be able to consider your viewpoints, wishes,
    and arguments even in your absence! I wish to especially encourage White
    Paper submissions from the business/commercial (i.e., catalogue holders,
    researchers, and administrators) and practitioner (i.e., librarians,
    retailers, etc.) communities. Of course, all others are also most
    welcomed to submit.

    The more White Papers we have, the stronger, and more useful, the final
    set of MIR/MDL evaluation framework recommendations will be!

    If this email has been at all persuasive, please contact me at
    jdownie@uiuc.edu and I will get back to you with the necessary details
    concerning submission formatting, deadlines, and the like.

    Edie Rasmussen is currently Professor in the School of Information
    Sciences, University of Pittsburgh. She has also held appointments at
    the School of Library and Information Studies at Dalhousie University,
    Nova Scotia, at the School of Library Science at the Institiut Teknoloji
    MARA, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at Nanyang Technological University,
    Singapore, and at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Dr.
    Rasmussen holds a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia and an
    M.Sc. degree from McMaster University, both in Chemistry, an M.L.S.
    degree from the University of Western Ontario, and a Ph.D. in
    Information Studies from the University of Sheffield. She has been
    active in the Information Retrieval and Digital Library research
    communities, having served as Conference Chair for the ACM International
    Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval, the ACM
    International Conference on Digital Libraries, and currently as
    Conference Chair for the ASIS&T 2002 Annual Meeting. Her current
    research interests include indexing and information retrieval in text
    and multimedia databases.

    I hope this email finds everyone well.
