3rd International Conference on
Music Information Retrieval

IRCAM – Centre Pompidou
Paris, France
October 13-17, 2002


The following events are proposed during ISMIR 2002 for the delegates. It is still subject to change, be sure to check regularly.

Cocktail : Monday evening, 8pm, Ircam

This cocktail is an opportunity to socialise and meet new and old attendees of ISMIR.

Concert: Tuesday evening, 8:30pm, Ircam

This concert is the first of two concerts presenting works of young composers from around the world who followed a one-year course at IRCAM, and which use the most recent technology in music. It will take place in the IRCAM concert hall with variable acoustics, itself a place worth the visit.

More information and detailed program on the Resonances Web site (select the English version, then “Cursus Concerts” in the menu on the left).

Gala dinner: Wednesday evening, 8pm-1am, on board a cruise ship on the Seine

The gala dinner will take place on board the Bel Ami. We shall board at 8pm (be on time, the ship will not be able to wait for late comers) at the Hotel de Ville port (a few minutes walking distance from IRCAM). The ship will cruise the Seine during 2,5 hours, and be moored the rest of the time. We hope that this will be a lifetime experience (at least as much as the scientific part of the conference, that is).
