Every year the members of the Germany National Committee are invited to participate in an Ordinary/ General Assembly held inside of an annual two-day Symposium and taking place at university institutes or academic venues.


Each Symposium focus on a topic selected in consultation of the Chair and Vice Chairs with the Local Organizer. The members may present papers related to the topic or report on their current research, followed by discussions.

Meetings to foster a new generation of academics are in the Making, like workshops for master and doctoral students.


The Meetings also serve to strengthen contacts between the members at the national level, and more generally to stimulate scientific discourse among members.

In addition, Joint Symposia take place in cooperation with neighbouring European National or Regional committees.

Reports of the Symposia are published in the resp. ICTM Bulletin.

Results of the Symposia are published in proceedings under the edition of the Chair and Guest editors.


The access to the proceedings of the volumes I – XXI is possible under "musiconn - Für vernetzte Musikwissenschaft", a Virtual Library of Musicology, a central portal for music and musicology. aus dem Nationalkomitee Deutschland im ICTM
