The Steering Committee is looking for hosts for NIME 2022 and later. Previous conferences have usually been hosted by one institution (or a few geographically close ones). NIME 2020 was fully online, 2021 is planned as hybrid (physical+online). The Steering Committee is interested in exploring hub-based conference formats in 2022 and onwards. There are many ways this could be done. One solution could be to have a central conference hub with satellite venues around the world. Another option could be to have a more distributed organization across multiple locations. Whatever format, we would need to think differently about the organization. We are particularly encouraging collaboration between individuals and/or institutions around the world.
If you are interested in hosting NIME, please get in touch with the Steering Committee (steering(æ)nime.org) or the Chair to discuss more. You can also take a look at the NIME Conference Cookbok with information about how the conferences is run.
Please get in touch as soon as possible to discuss your ideas with the Steering Committee. Deadline for submitting a formal proposal: 15 May 2021.
