The 45th ICTM World Conference

The 45th ICTM World Conference, will be held from 11 to 17 July 2019 at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. 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 chance to meet music scholars from all over the world.


The deadline for submitting proposals for individual papers, panels, film/video sessions, and forums/roundtables is 30 September 2018. Only one proposal per person is permitted. To send your proposal, please use the following online submission form:

Please note that the only valid method for sending proposals is through the online submission form quoted above. Do not submit your abstract to the Programme Committee, the Local Arrangements Committee, or the Secretariat.
