The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression gathers researchers and musicians from all over the world to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design. The conference started out as a workshop at the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in 2001. Since then, an annual series of international conferences have been held around the world, hosted by research groups dedicated to interface design, human-computer interaction, and computer music.

The theme of this conference edition is the Accessibility of Musical Expression, addressing the challenges of making musical expression accessible to all. This theme aims at providing a platform for researchers to explore accessibility and its different forms through the themes of music making with and for people with complex cognitive and physical needs, musician-centred interaction design and interfaces for music education and discovery.

The main theme for this year’s conference is accessibility. So, if you’re an independent artist, or you are not affiliated with an institution, or if you are experiencing financial hardships, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Hassan Hussain, our Conference Co-Ordinator, to apply for financial support.
