NIME 2021 Workshop Submission Template

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).

Submission Guide:

NIME uses two steps for a submission: Create your submission on PubPub, our multimedia platform for publication and then submit it through CMT, our conference management system. To submit a workshop proposal to NIME 2021, follow these steps (an illustrated guide to this process is forthcoming):

  1. Create an account on PubPub if you do not have one already.

  2. Create a Pub — Click the "Create Workshop Submission" button on the PubPub Submissions page. This will be your submitted workshop proposal and will eventually be published if accepted by the review process. Save the URL for future reference.

  3. Follow this template to create your submission. The easiest way to follow the template is to copy-paste it into your own Pub, where it will be available for quick reference. Of course, you will ultimately delete or replace everything from the template with your own content.

  4. Download your Pub as a PDF. Find the "Download" button to the right of the title near the top of your Pub.

  5. Upload the PDF to the CMT, NIME2021's conference management systerm.
