The NIME Conference 2011
The NIME conference is an annual interdisciplinary conference gathering participants from all over the world to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design. Participants are coming from many different backgrounds, including researchers (musicology, computer science, interaction design, etc.), artists (musicians, composers, dancers, etc.) and developers (self-employed and industrial).
The common denominator is the mutual interest in groundbreaking technology and music, and contributions to the conference cover everything from basic research on human cognition through experimental technological devices to multimedia performances. The conference was held in Oslo from Monday 30 May to Wednesday 1 June 2011, with around 400 participants from all over the world. In the days prior to the conference (25–29 May) there were workshops, symposia, concerts, and installations. In addition, a 3-month exhibition on sonic interaction design was shown at the Technical Museum in Oslo.
