International Council for Traditional Music

A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO

46th ICTM World Conference, 22–28 July 2021, Lisbon, Portugal

You are cordially invited to attend the 46th ICTM World Conference, which will be hosted between 22 and 28 July 2021 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. 

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.
