This page is devoted to discussions of the evaluation of Score Following algorithms at MIREX 2006. Discussions have already begun on the https://mail.lis.uiuc.edu/mailman/listinfo/mrx-com01 MIREX 06 "ScoreFollowing06" contest planning list] and will be briefly digested here. A full digest of the discussions is available to subscribers from the https://mail.lis.uiuc.edu/mailman/listinfo/mrx-com01 MIREX 06 "ScoreFollowing06" contest planning archive].

As consensus is achieved on the planning list, a full proposal (Score Following Proposal) will be produced for the format of the evaluation, including pseudocode for the evaluation metric and suggested formats for submitted algorithms. A skeleton of proposal is already available on the Score Following Proposal page.
