The “Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange” (MIREX) is the annual cycle of events wherein music information retrieval (MIR) researchers come together to investigate how well their innovative MIR algorithms perform. MIREX has played a pivotal role in the growth and success of the MIR research community, evaluating over 1,068 algorithms across 23 unique MIR task categories. Notwithstanding its growth and success, the research landscape in which MIREX resides has evolved considerably over its lifetime. With developments in the field, MIREX is placed in a novel research context allowing it to undertake a process of reflection and regeneration in order to maximize its impact by building upon its strengths, ameliorating its shortcomings, and capitalizing on its new opportunities.
