I am very happy to take part at the WiMIR community, a group of people within the International Society for Music Information Retrieval dedicated to promoting the role of, and increasing opportunities for, women in the MIR field. We meet to socialize, share information, and discuss in an informal setting, with the goal of building a community around women in our field.
For 2016, there are many things happening for the first time this year:
- ISMIR 2016 has two WiMIR representatives, Blair Kaneshiro and Amélie Anglade. They are doing an amazing job.
- There is specific WiMIR funding from sponsors (shazam, smule).
- There is a new WiMIR mentoring program launched and working well, thanks to Anja Volk, Blair Kaneshiro, Amélie Anglade, and our wonderful mentors.
- We built a web site! https://wimir.wordpress.com/ with all this information incorporated.
And this is only the start….. I am really happy to belong to this community 🙂
