New Interfaces for Musical Expression++
University of Technology Sydney, Australia

June 15-18 2010

On behalf of the NIME 2010 Committee, we invite you to be part of the 
International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression.  The 
core purpose of NIME is to examine interfaces/instruments for musical 
expression. The ++ portion of the 2010 conference concerns 
projects/papers that collaborate with music or sound via 
multi-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary and multimodal expression. 
Projects that collaborate with other disciplines, extending the musical 
or sonic framework are invited, and vice-versa.

NIME TOPICS We welcome submissions on topics related to new interfaces 
for music performance including, but not limited to:

– Novel controllers and interfaces for musical expression
– Novel controllers for collaborative performance
– Novel musical instruments
– Computational methods of composition
– Augmented/hyper instruments
– Interfaces for dance and physical expression
– Interactive Game Music
– Robotic Music
– Interactive sound and multimedia installations
– Interactive sonification
– Sensor and actuator technologies
– Haptic and force feedback devices
– Interface protocols and data formats
– Gesture and music
– Perceptual & cognitive issues
– Interactivity design and software tools
– Musical mapping strategies
– Performance analysis and machine learning
– Performance rendering and generative algorithms
– Experiences with novel interfaces in education and entertainment
– Experiences with novel interfaces in live performance and composition
– Surveys of past work and stimulating ideas for future research
– Historical studies in twentieth-century instrument design
– Reports on student projects in the framework of NIME related courses
– Artistic, cultural, and social impact of NIME technology
– Gesture measurement
– Enabling music networks
– Bio-music

NIME++ TOPICS We welcome submissions on topics related to 
multi-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary and multimodal expression, but 
not limited to:

– Mobile Technologies including Sound & Music
– Locative Media Integration
– Urban Digital Media & Media Faηades
– Human-Computer Interaction
– Multimodal Expressive Interfaces
– Practice-Based Research Approaches/Methodologies/Criticism
– Sonification, Auditory Display & Multimodal Information 
Expression,Data Display
– NIME intersecting with Performance, Dance, Theatre, Game Design
– Sonic Expression in Architecture, Design, Wearables/Fashion
– Computational Interfaces/Methods for Expression & Creativity

Full Paper (up to 6 pages in proceedings, longer oral 
presentation,optional demo)
Short Paper/Poster/Demo (up to 4 pages in proceedings, choose from 
shorter oral presentation OR poster OR demo)


Submission of full papers, short papers and poster/demo proposals: 29 
January 2010
Notification of acceptance/rejection (papers and posters): 12 March 2010
Submission of final papers: 23 April 2010

For any further information/question/comment/suggestion, please send a 
message to the local organizing committee.

As in previous years, we are calling for proposals for performances and 
installations to be presented in conjunction with the conference. There 
are 2 categories of performance proposal: Concert performance and Club 
night performance.  For details see the call on the NIME2010 website.

We are pleased to announce that Ensemble Offspring 
<> will be ensemble in residence at 
NIME 2010.  Performers/composers may therefore draw on any combination 
of their instrumental resources if they wish.  See the NIME2010 website 
for details.

Submission of installation and performance proposals due: 29 January 2010

In 2010, we are looking for two kinds of special event on the day 
preceding the full conference:

WORKSHOPS for academic-style paper presentations or discussion relating 
to a specialist area directed by an expert;


TUTORIALS for making things and developing knowledge. Tutorials can 
range in intention from instruction and discussion about specialist 
techniques, platforms, hardware, software or pedagogical topics for the 
advancement of fellow NIME-ers and people with experience related to the 
topic, or tutorials can be instructive for 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.  For details see the call on the NIME2010 website.

Submission of workshop/tutorial proposals due: 29 January 2010
