CALL FOR DEMOS


We welcome the submission of proposals for technology demonstrations accompanied by an extended abstract. We encourage authors to consider this year's conference theme Frugal Music Innovation when writing their manuscripts. Demo papers are up to 1500 words. Note that the word count includes the manuscript's main text only, i.e., excluding the title, abstract, keywords, CCS concepts, ethical statement, and references.

Submission Guide:

This year we are not using PubPub (here is why). Instead we are going back to the previous NIME proceedings LaTeX and Word templates. To submit a demo paper to NIME 2023, please follow these steps:


  1. Download the templates. Make sure you use the Paper Proceedings template for your demo paper submission.

  2. Make sure your paper is fully anonymized before submission. Unanonymized papers will be desk-rejected.

  3. Export your paper in PDF format.

  4. Upload the PDF to the CMT, NIME2023's conference management system.

Paper Review Process:

All paper submissions will be subjected to a rigorous double-blind peer review process by an international committee of experts. All of the submitted papers should demonstrate rigorous research methodology and will be evaluated according to the following criteria: novelty, academic quality, appropriateness of topic, importance, readability, ethical standards, and paper organization. Authors should also familiarize themselves with the NIME statements on diversity and environmental issues.

The review process is as follows:

  1. Each paper submission will be assigned to at least 3 reviewers for independent evaluation.

  2. A meta-reviewer will moderate a discussion amongst the reviewers, write a summary review, and recommend whether to accept the paper.

  3. The paper chairs will make the final decision on paper acceptance and will inform the author(s) of their decision along with the reviewers’ comments.


Please note this review process is double-blind, meaning reviewers remain anonymous to the authors and vice-versa. It is expected that authors respect the NIME Ethical guidelines for NIME publications.

Presentation Format:

If the submission is accepted, authors will be asked to provide a webpage/website to showcase their work. All materials will be publicly available online. Those who can visit Mexico City will have the opportunity to present their work in poster format during poster sessions and engage with the local NIME community. The conference is not able to print the posters.
