MusTWork16: Music Technology Workshop 2016: Establishing a Partnership Between Music Technology, Business Analytics and Industry in Ireland
Good Day to you and Welcome to MusTWork16 – ‘Music Technology Workshop 2016: Establishing a Partnership Between Music Technology, Business Analytics and Industry in Ireland’! This one-day event will be held on Friday June10th 2016 in the Michael Smurfit Business School, UCD, Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock, Co Dublin.
This workshop is intended to allow presentation of scientific research and highlight industrial, employment and research opportunities in the area of music computing, technology and analytics in Ireland. There are currently at least ten HEIs and numerous private Irish colleges offering technical courses in this area, resulting in a highly-skilled talent pool, but there is little opportunity at a national level to highlight what has been achieved and what opportunities there are to progress in this domain. As a developing field, there are opportunities within subjects such as music technology for graduates from a range of disciplines in computer science, machine learning and analytics.
This workshop will allow industry representatives to learn about the latest academic developments while academics can discover innovative problems where future research should be focussed. The event is intended to establish a community to harness and nurture the future of music technology in Ireland and to ensure current students are informed of avenues they can pursue in industry or through further research. We hope that that this day will bridge the gap between educational institutions and industry to promote the development of employment and enterprise in this sector within Ireland.
We hope that all academics, students, private practitioners and commercial companies involved in all aspects of Music Technology will have something to say and something learn at this event.
We look forward to meeting you in June.
