ISMIR tutorials

So I don't know exactly when this happened, but the ISMIR 2009 folks have published the tutorial schedule.  I of course already knew about mine and the music and the semantic web tutorial presented by Yves, Kurt et al.  The other 2 are 'MIR at the Scale of the Web' by Malcom Slaney and Micheal Casey, which I imagine will be all about using audiodb + LSH with extremely large collections of music.  I'm sure this will be a great tutorial so it's unfortunate that you won't be able to attend this tutorial and mine as they're at the same time.  In the other afternoon session you can attend 'Using Visualizations for Music Discovery' presented by Justin Donaldson and Paul Lamere.  As they both do great work I'm sure it will be an excellent tutorial as well.  Also, as a bonus, the tutorials happen to fall on the day of my birth, so there's that as well.  Kobe is shaping up to be a conference packed full of goodness...

Congrats! And it looks like I'll be able to attend your tutorial -so I'm glad. Really all the tutorials look really good. I hope they record them and make them available. - P

Thanks paul. Yeah I agree that they all look good. I wouldn't at all mind attending the tutorial by Mike Casey and Malcolm Slaney, were it not for the overlap with my own tutorial. Recordings would be good, or at least some slideshare.
