Roadmap for Music Information ReSearch
The Roadmap was elaborated by the researchers involved in the MIReS project. They were responsible to get input and feedback from many people. Many events were organised to gather information from experts throughout the elaboration of the Roadmap.
For the purpose of this Roadmap Music Information Research (MIR) is considered a field that covers all the research topics involved in the understanding and modelling of music and that use information processing methodologies. This research is considered to be very much within the field of Information Technologies thus with the major aim of developing methods and technologies with which to process musically relevant data and develop products and services with which to create, distribute and interact with music information.
