musical piece. Below is the initial call for participation for the competition.
The EuroGP Song Contest
Conference participants are invited to take part in the inaugral EuroGP
song contest. In this exciting and glamorous event, competitors will try
to evolve pleasing musical pieces through the use of an Interactive
Evolutionary Algorithm. The contest will run on the second day of the
conference, after the conference and workshop sessions have finished.
Attractive prizes will be awarded to the winners.
An Interactive Evolutionary Algorithm will be provided to participants,
each of whom will have 45 minutes to evolve a pleasing musical piece. Once
time is up, each participant will save his or her best song and the best
of all songs will be voted on by the rest of the contestants
The contest is actually a thinly disguised attempt to use the GP community
to produce data for a project running in the University of Limerick to use
GP to automatically identify subjective fitness functions in interactive
evolution. A paper [insert details here] will be presented at EuroGP the
day before the contest. All participants will be acknowledged in the final
report on this work.
