      SBM2011 - Social Behavior in Music
      Genova, Italy, May 27, 2011

      Workshop in the framework of Intl. Intetain 2011 Conference

      Music making and listening are a clear example of human activities that are
      above all interactive and social. On the one hand, however, nowadays
      mediated music making and listening is usually still a passive, non-context
      sensitive, and non-social experience. The current electronic technologies,
      with their potential for interactivity and communication, have not yet been
      able to fully support and promote these essential aspects. On the other
      hand, new mediated forms of sharing music experience in a social context
      with local or remote users or as a part of a community are emerging. Novel
      research challenges are faced and novel disciplines develops, e.g., Social
      Signal Processing. Foundational issues such us techniques for identifying
      the leader in a group of users, for measuring the cohesion of the group, for
      recognizing and stimulating empathy between the participants, find in music
      an ideal test-bed for research and for scientific and technological
      investigation. In this framework, new paradigms for embodied and active
      experience of music are needed, where multimodal non-verbal communication
      channels, and in particular movement and gesture, play a central role.
      Perspectives such as pervasive embodied social music networks, grounded on
      the Future Internet, become a concrete scenario for the near future.
      This workshop focuses on the social signals and their features that are most
      significant for a qualitative and quantitative analysis of social behavior
      and experience in music. It will discuss computational models, algorithms,
      and techniques for analysis of social behavior in music, their application
      in concrete test-beds, their evaluation in experimental set-ups, and their
      exploitation in future scenarios. The workshop will explore many-to-many
      human interplay, such as performer-listener, performer-performer,
      performer-conductor, and listener-listener interaction, in novel scenarios
      where the distinction between listeners and performers fades out and users
      become producers and consumers of music experience.
      The Second International Workshop on Social Behavior in Music (SBM2011)
      represents an occasion for researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss
      about social behavior in music: e.g., which are the multimodal signals
      characterizing social experience in performers and listeners interplay?; how
      to model interaction in groups of performers, in the audience, between
      audience and performers?; which is the minimal set of low-level features
      describing interaction in performance? which are the social signals that
      better describe social interaction in music? To face such challenges,
      integration is needed of research in engineering and physics, as well as in
      human sciences, e.g., social psychology.

      We encourage contributions addressing fundamental research issues including,
      but not limited to, the following topics:
      - theoretical approaches to social behavior in music
      - experimental methodologies for analysis of social behavior in music
      - computational models of social behavior in music
      - analysis of social signals in music
      - synchronization of human behavior in music
      - analysis of social roles in performers and listeners
      - analysis of cohesion in performers and audience
      - multimodal interfaces for active and social music experience
      - cooperative social environments for participative music experience
      - multi-user systems and applications for social music experience

      All the contributions will be subject to a peer-review by the Program
      Committee. Submissions should include: title, author(s), affiliation(s),
      e-mail address(es), tel/fax number(s), and postal address(es). Submissions
      must be sent to the following email address: sbm11@....
      All accepted contributions will be presented at the workshop as oral
      presentation. Contributions may have an accompanying demo. Accepted
      contributions will appear in LNICST, under the joint publication series of
      ICST and Springer. Authors of accepted contributions will be required to
      submit a camera ready version. At least one author for each accepted
      contribution is required to attend the workshop to present the work.
      Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts electronically on the
      workshop website (www.infomus.org/SBM2011).
      Papers should be formatted according to LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer
      Science) format. Instructions can be found here:
