The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) is an annual interdisciplinary conference discussing contemporary topics in electronic musical interface design, research and practice. The NIME conference started out as a workshop at the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in 2001, and has grown into one of the largest and most vital international conferences within the field of music technology.

The NIME conference brings together researchers and practitioners from a range of academic fields including computer science, electrical engineering, human-computer interaction, musicology, electro-acoustic music, dance and composition, and has routinely attracted interest from electronic music industry as well.

This year NIME will be held at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor has a long tradition on electro-acoustic music having been the location of pioneering early work by Gordon Mumma, Robert Ashley, David Tudor, Alvin Lucier, and David Behrman. It has just celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Performing Arts Technology program, is the location of numerous electronic music groups such as Steve Rush's Digital Music Ensemble and more recently Georg Essl's Michigan Mobile Phone Ensemble. University of Michigan hosted the International Computer Music Conference in 1998.
