WiMIR is a group of people dedicated to promoting the role of, and increasing opportunities for, women in the MIR field. We meet to socialize, share information, and discuss in an informal setting, with the goal of building a community around women, as well as men who support women, in our field. WiMIR has held an annual meeting at the ISMIR conference since 2012, having a high turnout of both female and male attendees. This year’s meeting will include a short overview of the group and ongoing initiatives, and a mentorship session for ISMIR members.
