Call for Demos

Interaction Design is huge. It looks for meaningful relationships between people and the products/services they use from computers to mobile devices to appliances and beyond. We believe music has a unique place within interaction design which we hope to explore and understand more through this event. 

You are invited to submit a proposal for a demo to be presented at the 1st Music Interaction Design (MiXD) symposium. The duration of the demo can be anything from 5 to 30 minutes and could be a short “elevator pitch” of an idea in progress, or a more extended technology / concept demo. 

We are looking to cover a wide range of topics related to music interaction design including:

  • software interfaces
  • hardware interfaces
  • novel controllers
  • sensor technologies
  • augmented and mixed reality
  • game audio
  • sound design

The symposium will sit at the intersection of industry, academia, science, art and design and will be an ideal opportunity for networking with other people working in the area. We have invited world leading academics and industry experts to present their work and approaches. Look for our keynote and confirmed presenters for further updates.

The symposium ends with a concert @ 18:30 appropriate to the theme, Music Interaction Design.
