We invite submissions of art installations on new interfaces for musical expression. We encourage authors to consider this year's conference theme Frugal Music Innovation in their works. NIME 2023 will provide several locations that can be used to exhibit new music installation works. These are foyer location installations or room-based installations in connection to the conference venues. 

Authors can optionally provide a documentation video of the installation for the online attendees. 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.

If an art installation is selected for exhibition at NIME and the proposing artists cannot attend the conference in person, we invite the artists to provide links and access that attendees can experience online.

In order to present an installation for NIME 2023, please submit a proposal in the form of a PDF document, maximum 1500 words, containing the following information:
