Announcement: 46th ICTM World Conference POSTPONED to July 2022

The 46th ICTM World Conference has been postponed to July 2022 due to the uncertainties caused by the covid-19 pandemic. 

You are cordially invited to attend the 46th ICTM World Conference, which will be hosted between 21 and 27 July 2022 by the Institute of Ethnomusicology - Center for Studies in Music and Dance and the NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities, New University of Lisbon (NOVA-FCSH), Lisbon, Portugal. Originally scheduled to be held on July 2021, the ICTM Executive Board decided to postpone the World Conference to July 2022 due to the uncertainties caused by the covid-19 pandemic. 

The ICTM World Conference is the leading international venue for the presentation of new research on music and dance. Many new initiatives emerge at World Conferences and, perhaps even more crucially, discussion at these meetings helps us shape our ongoing work. A successful World Conference is a truly stimulating place to be, and a wonderful place to meet and share ideas with colleagues from all over the world.
