On behalf of the NIME 2006 Committee, we would like to invite you to be 
part
of the 6th international conference on New Interfaces for Musical 
Expression
conference, organized by IRCAM (Centre Pompidou) in collaboration with the
MINT-OMF (Sorbonne University) in Paris.

The conference will be held in conjunction with IRCAM's annual Festival
of Performing Arts Agora and the Music Technology Convention Résonances,
joined for the first time in 2006 to form a single event running from
June 1st to June 17th.

NIME 06 will provide a unique opportunity to confer with an 
interdisciplinary
audience of artists, scientists and technologists on the latest 
developments
in musical interface design and musical expression.
The meeting will also offer the possibility to network with a flourishing
local scene of interface and instrument makers, research labs, and computer
music institutions.

We would like to encourage contributions in the following formats:
* Papers/Reports/Posters/Demos
* Live performances
* Interactive installations

Please subscribe to the NIME 06 community mailing list at

The submission procedure will allow to choose an explicit demo option

paper or poster submission.
The simplest demo submission would take the form of a short poster 
summarizing
the scientific/technical aspects, acquired experiences and/or the 
context of
the development.

SPECIAL SESSION ON VIOLIN-BASED AND VIOLIN-INSPIRED INTERFACES

We encourage the submission of papers to be presented in a special 
session on
violin-based and violin-inspired interfaces.

The purpose of this special session is to create an opportunity for 
in-depth
discussions on a topic of wide-ranging interest to several of the NIME 
themes.

Papers for the special session will be subject to the same review 
process as
the other submissions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

LIVE PERFORMANCES

An evening concert during the conference will be dedicated to live 
performances
hilighting creative use of interactive instrument technology.

We welcome proposals for performances to be featured in the NIME 06
concert.

Please refer to the NIME 06 web page for detailed submission requirements.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS

Various spaces in and around the conference venue are reserved for 
interactive
sound and multimedia installations.

We welcome proposals for interactive installations to be presented
during the conference. We particularly encourage installations that could
run during the entire period of Agora/Résonances from June 1 to June 17.

While some of the spaces are closed rooms, others are open spaces such as
entrance or stairs which encourage site-specific installations.
Dimensions and details about these spaces are available from the organizing
committee. In all cases, the participant must provide their equipment for
the installation.

Please refer to the NIME 06 web page for detailed submission 
requirements and
descriptions of the provided installation spaces.
