NIME 2018 call for submissions

NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) is the premier conference in human-machine interfaces and interactions for musical performance. NIME is a gathering of researchers, designers, musicians, who come together to share knowledge, perform music, and build community through research presentations, concerts, installations, and workshops.

On behalf of the 2018 NIME Committee I am pleased to announce that the NIME 2018 "Mirrored Resonances" Conference call for submissions is now officially open! Co-organized between Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia, the conference will take place June 3-6, 2018 in Blacksburg, Virginia. We welcome submissions of papers, posters, panels, musical performances, installations, demos, and workshops, particularly those that may respond to the overarching conference theme of “Mirrored Resonances” and its thematic areas in any of the many ways they might be interpreted. Likewise, we encourage potential participants to consider exploring the unique Virginia Tech facilities, including the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology’s Cube with a massive high density loudspeaker array. The deadline for the double-blind peer reviewed submissions, including papers, panels, demo papers, music, and installations is January 20th, 2018. Submissions created by January 20th will continue to be editable until January 27th when the submission process will close. Demos without paper and workshops will be curated and have an extended submission deadline until March 1st, 2018. In addition to the NIME and academic communities, we also invite industry, as well as non-academic creatives to consider participating in the aforesaid categories. For a complete list of important dates visit the Participate page.

We are excited to announce that the conference will feature four keynote artists:

Onyx Ashanti
Benjamin Knapp
Ikue Mori
Pamela Z

Please note the authors of accepted works will be required to register and attend the conference.

On behalf of the entire NIME 2018 Committee, we look forward to welcoming you in Virginia next June!
