NIME 2016 – 3rd Call for Participation

(Apologies for cross postings)

NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) is the premier conference

in designing human-machine interfaces and interactions for musical

performance. NIME gathers researchers and practitioners together for

lectures, installations, concerts, and workshops.

NIME 2016 will be held in Brisbane, Australia, from 11-15 July 2016.

Web site: http://nime2016.org

Call for Participation

Submission of new work for presentation at the conference is invited in

the following categories:

Papers and Posters

Performances, Installations and Exhibitions


Workshops and Unconference day activities

Important Dates

Submission: January 25, 2016.

Review notification: March 28, 2016

Camera-ready paper/program note deadline: April 18, 2016

Theme and Process

The thematic focus of this year’s conference is Musician & Machine.

Submissions that extend, stretch, or challenge the NIME topics and

themes, are also welcome. Submissions should be made at the dedicated

submission site.

This year all submissions (including papers) are encouraged to include a

short video, that assists in demonstrating the research claims,

performance aesthetic, quality of demonstration, etc. Papers, video or

program notes from all accepted submissions will be published in the

conference proceedings, under an ISSN/ISBN reference, and will be

archived online after the conference to be tracked by citation tools.

All submissions will be subject to a peer review process by an

international expert committee. Given the new focus on accompanying

video documentation, the review process will be single-blind for all

categories (this means the author’s identities will be known to the

reviewers, but the reviewers will remain anonymous).


In addition to submissions that address the specific theme (Musician &

Machine) of this year’s edition of the conference, original

contributions are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:

Novel controllers, interfaces or instruments for musical expression

Augmented/hyper instruments

Novel technologies for collaborative performance

Theoretical or philosophical discussions about performing with new


Sensor, actuator technologies, haptic and force feedback devices

Explorations of the relationship between motion, gesture and music

Interfaces for musical expression for people with special needs

Musical applications of robotics

New performance paradigms for mobile music technologies

Musical mapping strategies

Embedded musical instruments and embedded sound art installations

Interactive sound art and installations

Musical human-computer interaction

Interface protocols and data formats

Performance rendering and generative algorithms

Machine learning in musical performance

Artistic, cultural, and social impact of NIME technology

User studies and evaluations of new interfaces for musical expression
