- Abstract: In this paper the organization of the first Workshop on Reading Music Systems (WoRMS) is motivated. The event is intended to become a forum for discussion and collaborative projects for all people interested in the optical music recognition and related applications. This first edition is held as a satellite event of the 19th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference. It is our hope that WoRMS helps to set the basis towards building a stable community around the field of music reading systems.
