Dear all,

As part of the New Interfaces for Musical Expression Conference (NIME 2017), we are organising a workshop on skill learning through interactive music technology.

This workshop will be held in collaboration with another NIME 2017 workshop on Motor Learning for Music Performance (MOTION2017). We will share the morning session, then have a dedicated afternoon on the specific topics related to understanding skill learning, computational tools facilitating learning (such as machine learning-based techniques) and methods.

You can contribute to the workshop either by presenting your work (see submission procedure below) or by attending and participating to the discussions.

We invite participants to propose submissions including an abstract of 500 words or less with the title of the proposed presentation, names and institutional affiliation information for all contributing authors as they should appear in the workshop program, as well as e-mail contact information for the primary/submitting author. We encourage authors to provide a list of supplementary material within their submissions. Such material could be links towards videos, code source, databases, blog posts documenting the relevant research etc.

Submissions must be sent by April 28th, 2017 to: [log in to unmask] 

Submission deadline: April 28th, 2017 (via email)
Notification of acceptance: May 3th, 2017
Workshop day: May 15th, 2017

Topics may include (but are not limited to): 
- Sensori-motor learning in music performance 
- Auditory-motor couplings in music performance 
- Expertise transferability from acoustic to digital musical instruments
- Supporting novice-to-expert transfer in interactive technology
- New DMI designs facilitating skill acquisition
- The role of music in understanding skill acquisition
- Methodology challenges of assessing skill learning in interactive music technology
- Applications to creation, pedagogy, rehabilitation among others

Papers will be reviewed by the organising committee and accepted authors will present at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop. Based on the submissions, we will create sessions by topic. Within each session, each presenter will have 7 minutes to present their work and 3 minutes of questions. The idea is to keep the presentations short and then discuss collegially the session topic. Each participant will have the opportunity during these discussions to propose their own examples (videos, sounds, articles... ) to the group, adding material to the discussion.

The workshop is free. We will accept participants willing to attend the workshop without having submitting a paper if there is enough seat capacity. In any case, we ask the participants to contact us before the workshop.
