The annual ISMIR 2003 is the first established international forum for those involved in work on accessing digital musical materials. It reflects the tremendous growth of music-related data available either locally or remotely through networks and the consequent need to search this content and retrieve music and musical information efficiently and effectively. This conference brings together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and professional users, working in fields that contribute significantly to this multi-disciplinary domain, to present original theoretical or practical work in peer-reviewed contributions. Past conferences included over 200 participants representing 22 countries.
