    # Conference theme

    The theme of AIMC 2021 is: Performing [with] machines. The dual meaning of
    this title hints towards an understanding of the machine as a performing ag
    ent in a human-machine partnership. By putting the emphasis on creative hum an-machine partnerships in performative contexts, this theme aims to encour
    age artistic and scientific contributions that deal with the different ways
    in which musicianship, authorship and performership are challenged, extend
    ed and redefined in the era of AI.
