    Jun 7, 2018

    This blog post is the web page companion of the paper “Who Are the Women Authors in NIME? - Improving Gender Balance in NIME Research” (Xambó 2018). This paper looks at the underrepresentation of women at the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) conference and how we can improve the representation of women at NIME. In particular, it focuses on what has been the level of representation of women authors in NIME over the course of the years from 2001 to 2017 and whether there has been any improvement. This blog post highlights the descriptive statistics results to give some context to the directory of WiNIME. The reader is welcomed to explore the full paper to get a deeper sense of the current numbers and potential solutions.
