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
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
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
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
