On behalf of the NIME 2012 Committee, we would like to invite you to be part of the 12th international conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression conference, organized by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, USA.
We invite submission of new works in the following categories:
For any further information/questions/comments/suggestions, please contact the organizing committee.
CALL FOR PAPERS
We welcome submissions of original research on all above mentioned (and other) topics related to development and artistic use of new interfaces for musical expression. There are three different paper submission categories:
CALL FOR PERFORMANCES
We welcome submission of proposals for performances. Proposed performances should have a clear connection with the substance of the NIME conference. Performance proposals in conjunction with paper submissions are encouraged, but each will be judged on its own merit. Within reasonable limits, we may be able to provide musicians to perform pieces. Typical NIME performance pieces last for 5-15 minutes, but shorter and longer performance proposals may also be taken into consideration.
Submitted proposals will be reviewed by an expert committee. Preference will be given to submissions with strong evidence that the proposed performance has already been realized or is technically feasible and within the artists' capabilities. Documentation of the performances will be available online after the conference.
Submit a proposal in the form of a PDF document, maximum 4 pages. Supplementary supporting media files (audio and video) or links to online media are encouraged. The proposal should include the following:
CALL FOR INSTALLATIONS
We will have a number of locations that can be used to exhibit new music installation work. These are foyer location installations or room-based installations in connection to the conference venues. High and open indoor space is available.
Submitted proposals will be subject to a peer review process by an international expert committee. Documentation of the installations will be available online after the conference.
NIME2012 will host a public exhibition of installation works in a gallery close to the conference venue. The exhibition will run from Sunday May 20th through Wednesday May 23rd so those planning to submit should be prepared to arrive in Ann Arbor to set up on Saturday May 19th.
In order to submit a proposal for an installation for NIME2012, please submit a proposal in the form of a PDF document, maximum 4 pages, containing the following information:
CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
We call for short (3 hours) or long (6 hours) workshops and tutorials. These can be targeted towards specialist techniques, platforms, hardware, software or pedagogical topics for the advancement of fellow NIME-ers and people with experience related to the topic. They can also be targeted towards 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. 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.
Admission to workshops and tutorials will be charged separately from the main conference. Proposer(s) are responsible for publishing any workshop proceedings (if desired) and should engage in the promotion of their event by engaging their own networks. Workshops may be cancelled or combined if there is inadequate participation.
You can allow your visitors to import event dates into their own calendars through the convenient webcal-links above.

Not even the nascent state of the Web can excuse the amateurish lack of usability of today's eCommerce initiatives. The sites we evaluated demonstrated a fundamental failure to incorporate decades-old principles of software design. But as the novelty of doing business on the Web gives way to demands for basic quality, companies will have to get serious about user experience.
