We welcome the submission of works in progress accompanied by an extended abstract. This category is especially suitable for first-time NIME attendees. We encourage authors to consider this year's conference theme Frugal Music Innovation when writing their manuscripts. Short papers are up to 3000 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 short paper to NIME 2023, please follow these steps:

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:

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.
