Please pardon the cross-posting. My COMPEL project collaborators and I
would appreciate it if you would please distribute this email widely among
various communities whose work is rooted in computer music, starting with
composers, performers, and instrument and installation designers.

Dear all,

As part of the preparations for the Workshop on NIME Archiving
<https://nime.pubpub.org/pub/oyi0po4b> to be held on 28 June, we look for
volunteers to fill out one or more records of *artifact*s (defined broadly)
in this survey:

*https://forms.gle/A8zNrFVxs9N4aBcp9 <https://forms.gle/A8zNrFVxs9N4aBcp9>*

The idea is to check whether categories developed for the COMPEL archive
make sense from the community's perspective. We ask that you please
consider filling out the survey *before 24 June* so that we have a couple
of days to look at results before the workshop. Feel free to make entries
also if you cannot make it to the workshop!

Given that this effort may benefit the broader computer music community,
please note that *both the survey and the workshop are open to any person
who is interested in participating*, regardless whether they are registered
for the conference. Since this year NIME is an online-only conference, *the
zoom link will be forthcoming and will be shared with all survey
contributors and conference participants soon*.

The workshop will continue discussions in the community on how to best
preserve information from the NIME conferences, the NIME community, and the
computer music community at large. The workshop will follow up on threads
from the NIME publication ecosystem workshop
<https://nime2020.bcu.ac.uk/nime-publication-ecosystem-workshop/> (NIME
2020, Birmingham), ICMC 2018 paper
<https://dblp.org/rec/conf/icmc/BukvicO18.html>, SEAMUS 2018 conference
presentation, and the NIMEhub workshop
<https://www.duo.uio.no/handle/10852/50604> (NIME 2016, Brisbane). As we
rebuild the COMPEL platform to sidestep technological limitations of the
old infrastructure, the main task is to find a solution for an open,
future-oriented, engaging, and institutionally recognized archiving
solution for the activities of the community that ensures *reproducibility *of
archived artifacts. While NIME publications are archived according to the FAIR
principles <https://www.go-fair.org/fair-principles/>, currently no
solutions exist for archiving information about instruments/interfaces and
other hardware/software-based artifacts produced in the community. Neither
do we have a system for describing and preserving compositions/pieces,
installations, performances, and workshops. We believe that this challenge
affects the computer music community at large. The goal of this workshop
and forum discussions
<https://forum.nime.org/t/survey-and-workshop-on-nime-archiving/306> is to
propel the project forward and expand the community engagement.

Thank you for your consideration and participation. Should you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the workshop organizers
