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.

CALL FOR WORKSHOP/TUTORIAL PROPOSAL

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; and
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. Tutorial proposers should clearly indicate the audience and assumed knowledge of their intended participants to help us market to the appropriate audience. Admission to workshops and tutorials will be charged separately from the main conference. Workshop publications arising, where relevant, are the responsibility of the workshop organiser.

NIME & NIME++ TOPICS
Workshops and tutorials can relate to, but are not limited to, the topics of the conference.

This is a good opportunity to explore a specialised interest or interdisciplinary topic in depth with greater time for discourse, debate, collaboration.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Submit 500-1,000 word PDF proposal addressing the following:

  • Clearly state the topic, anticipated audience, proposed channels for promoting and marketing your workshop/proposal.
  • Name(s) of proposer(s)/submitter(s)
  • For tutorials, proposers should indicate the pre-requisites or assumed knowledge required for participants.
  • Indicate venue requirements (e.g. data projection, sound reproduction, work-desks or seminar seating, other equipment, whiteboards, audio interfaces, etc.) and any hardware/software requirements (computer lab, Arduino or similar resources, tools, workshop, software applications). Please indicate if there are any safety implications (soldering, power tool usage, etc.) that may need health and safety compliance
  • If you require equipment, especially audio equipment or musical interfaces, indicate clearly if you will be supplying/bringing it, or if it needs to be sourced in Sydney
  • Specify whether you would like a 0.5-day or full-day time-slot
  • Include 2 paragraph bio of organiser(s) and background relating to proposed topic
  • Additional information
  • Understand that the proposer(s) are responsible for publishing any workshop proceedings if desired and should engage in the promotion of their event amongst own networks.
  • Workshop/Tutorials may be cancelled or combined if there is inadequate participation
