WiMIR Grants to attend ISMIR 2016

Women in MIR (WiMIR) Grants are being offered for the first time thanks to the generous support of industry partners (Smule, Shazam) to female first or supporting authors of accepted full papers, as well as female first authors of accepted late-breaking demo (LBD) submissions to be presented at ISMIR 2016.

Applicants do NOT need to be students to apply for the WiMIR Award.

If you are a female MIR researcher, are planning to attend ISMIR, and you need some support, please apply before May 20th.

Application instructions are found at the ISMIR 2016 web page.

Thanks to our sponsors!

WiMIR session at ISMIR 2016

Our next meeting will take place at the next ISMIR Conference in NYC, August 2016. More info here.

For this year’s WiMIR session, we will begin with a short overview of the group, recognize WiMIR sponsors, and report on disbursement of WiMIR funding. We will next summarize and discuss the initial offering of the WiMIR mentoring program. The final component of the session will be devoted to discussion of proposed initiatives to further support women in the field; broadening the scope of diversity in MIR and inclusion of other underrepresented groups; and expanding university-level initiatives.
