Blacksburg, VA | June 3-6 2018

Travel

Consistent with the positions of the leadership of both Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia, the American Association of University Professors, the ACLU, and many other organizations, the organizers of NIME 2018 support diversity of all kinds, including diversity of nationality and religion. We are unequivocally committed to the free exchange of knowledge, art, and community across national boundaries. We imagine a fully international conference that provides these humanistic benefits, and at the same time itself constitutes a gesture of inclusivity, broadly conceived.

The organizers of NIME 2018 encourage anyone who might be affected by the proposed travel ban to contact and work with us in support of your participation in the conference.
