    ISMIR 2020: disentanglement, lottery tickets & NLP meet MIR

    As my first experience of ISMIR has just come to an end, I’ve decided to consolidate some of the notes I’ve taken during the week and make them available through this (incomplete) summary of the papers and discussions that stuck out to me the most. With a total of 115 papers, 27 late-breaking/demo abstracts, and another 17 papers presented at the satellite workshop NLP for Music and Audio (NLP4MusA), anyone at the conference will have had a hard time deciding which sessions to attend. My experience was no exception, so in the rest of this post I focus on just the top 3 papers that caught my attention throughout the week, give a quick overview of other interesting discussions and work I’ve come across and highligh some of the thematic trends that seem to have surfaced this year.
