Call For Workshops

NIME 2021 welcomes the submission of Workshop Proposals. Workshops may be in any area of NIME themes or topics.

Typical NIME workshops have been half-day or full-day workshops, with some specialized workshops with shorter times (one or two hours).

A submission includes:

  • Workshop Title
  • Speaker List: Include Workshop organizer(s) with short bio(s) up to 200 words including background relating to proposed topic, and affiliation and contact information. Include additional speakers name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information.
  • Workshop Description up to 750 words, clearly describing the topic and nature of the workshop.
  • Short Description up to 70 words, for conference program.
  • Preferred length of workshop (half-day, full-day, or number of hours).
  • Description of technical and space requirements (e.g. projector, speakers, computers, soldering equipment, etc.), Please include information on contingencies for in-person, virtual, and blended modes, and whether virtual and blended formats are possible for this Workshop.
  • Optional links to supporting audio, visual, and/or online documentation, e.g. a workshop web page. Any media materials should use an unrestricted streaming service such as Vimeo or Bilibili.
Workshop Review Process:

Workshops will be curated by the Workshop co-chairs and associated review committee, based on the Workshop proposal’s relevance to the NIME conference and conference theme, and feasibility. As a result, the feedback on these curated acceptances and rejections will be limited. Workshop proposal submissions are not anonymized.

Submission Guide:

Workshop proposals should be created through Pubpub and follow the format and guidelines outlined in the Workshop submission template. After creating the proposal on PubPub, a PDF should be exported and submitted through the NIME 2021 conference management system (the system will open in early December). Please use this PubPub document to enter your submission.
