Within the 13th International Conference on Computer Supported Education - CSEDU 2021


Luca Andrea Ludovico
Università degli Studi di Milano
Brief Bio
Luca A. Ludovico is a researcher and assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Milan, Italy. He received a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Milan. Since 2003 he is a member of the Laboratory of Music Informatics of the University of Milan, and his research interests deal with sound and music computing. In particular, his scientific activities focus on multi-layer representation of music information, computational musicology, computer-supported music education and intangible cultural heritage. As a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Generated Music, he has been one of the main contributors for the standardization of the IEEE 1599 format, and he is currently the vice-chair of the IEEE Working Group for XML Musical Application (WG_1599). Moreover, he is member of CINI Lab for Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Systems, MIDI Association, and W3C Music Notation Community Group.


The goal of this special session is to investigate the impact of computer-based approaches on music education. Specifically, contributions should focus on the development and use of hardware devices, software, and, more generally, advanced technologies (e.g., new-generation mobile networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) aiming to support music learning/teaching and to improve player's performance.


Authors are welcome to submit papers, discuss theory or research issues, demonstrate tools:
  • New Technologies and Devices for Music Education
  • Machine Learning in Music Education
  • Fostering Computational Thinking through Music
  • Technologies for Distance Music Learning and Teaching
  • Serious and Educational Games for Music
  • Computer-Based Educational Experiences for Music
