What is NIME? The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression is currently in its 10th year. Researchers and musicians from all over the world gather to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design.

Expression is a central notion of humankind. It is what we do - when we have an idea, we write, draw, sculpt, speak, type, dance, touch - we want to express. We need to express. It is through expression that we make a change in the world, from the most modest little concept to deep and profound structures.
