We are pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of Volume 2 of the Journal of Creative Music Systems. This issue contains five papers first presented at the First Conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity, held 17–19 June 2016 at the University of Huddersfield, and published here in revised and expanded form. These papers were selected by delegates and reviewed further in their revised form, and they give a good flavour of the range of issues – theoretical, practical, and philosophical – discussed at the conference. A review of this conference, by René Mogensen, was published in JCMS 1(2).
This issue is published shortly after the Second Conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity, held 11–13 September 2017 at the Open University, which represents the continuation of what we hope will become an ongoing series.
