Call for Papers

We welcome submissions of original research on all above-mentioned (and other) topics related to development and artistic use of new interfaces for musical expression. There are three different paper submission categories:

– Full paper (up to 6 pages in proceedings, longer oral presentation, optional demo)
– Short paper/poster (up to 4 pages in proceedings, shorter oral presentation or poster, optional demo)
– Demonstration (up to 2 pages in proceedings)

Submitted papers will be subject to a peer review process by an international expert committee. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISSN/ISBN reference, and will be available online after the conference. A manuscript submitted for review cannot be already under review for publication elsewhere, or be submitted for a second review elsewhere while under review for NIME 2013.

Call for Performances

We welcome submission of proposals for performances. Proposed performances should have a clear connection with the substance of the NIME conference. Performance proposals in conjunction with paper submissions are encouraged, but each will be judged on its own merit. Within reasonable limits, we may be able to provide musicians to perform pieces. Typical NIME performance pieces last for 5-15 minutes, but shorter and longer performance proposals may also be taken into consideration.

Submitted proposals will be reviewed by an expert committee. Preference will be given to submissions with strong evidence that the proposed performance has already been realized or is technically feasible and within the artists‘ capabilities. Documentation of the performances will be available online after the conference.

Call for Installations

NIME 2013 will also provide several locations that can be used to exhibit new music installation work. These are foyer location installations or room-based installations in connection to the conference venues.
Submitted proposals will be subject to a peer review process by an international expert committee. Documentation of the installations will be available online after the conference.

Call for Workshops

We call for short (3 hours) or long (6 hours) workshops and tutorials. These can be targeted towards specialist techniques, platforms, hardware, software or pedagogical topics for the advancement of fellow NIME-ers and people with experience related to the topic. They can also be targeted towards visitors to the NIME community, novices/newbies, interested student participants, people from other fields, and members of the public getting to know the potential of NIME.

Tutorial proposers should clearly indicate the audience and assumed knowledge of their intended participants to help us market to the appropriate audience. Workshops and tutorials can relate to, but are not limited to, the topics of the conference. This is a good opportunity to explore a specialized interest or interdisciplinary topic in depth with greater time for discourse, debate, and collaboration.
