 Music and the Origins of Language: International Summer School on Agent-based Computational Models of Creativity

Host Institution: Scuola Normale Superiore
Coordinating Institution: The Evolutionary Linguistics Association (ELA)
Website: http://ai.vub.ac.be/events/cortona-2013/

Dates: 15-Sep-2013 - 20-Sep-2013
Location: Cortona, Italy

Focus: This summer school centers on agent-based models of creativity, 
focusing on the domains of language and music.
Minimum Education Level: MA


Special Qualifications:
The school is open to all researchers with sufficient scientific and technical 
background to actively participate in the lectures and ateliers. The number 
of possible participants is limited and we therefore use a strict selection procedure.


Description:
The summer school has a wide-ranging program of background lectures
introducing concepts from biology, anthropology, psychology, music theory and
linguistics that are helpful to understand the nature of creativity, the role
and intimate relations between language and music, and the mechanisms
underlying cultural evolution. It further contains technical lectures on the
fundamental computational components required for language processing as well
as technical ateliers to learn how to set up evolutionary linguistics
experiments. Participants have the opportunity to present their latest
research in a poster session. Embedded in the school is an ERC workshop of the
Flow Machines project on musical style and composition. The school also
features artistic ateliers in which participants create new creative works and
engage in performance.


Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
