Third notice

You are cordially invited to attend the 42nd World Conference of the ICTM which will be held in the summer of 2013 and hosted by the Shanghai Conservatory of Music.

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, haps even more crucially discussion at these meetings helps us to shape our ongoing work. A successful World Conference-like that in St. John's, Newfoundland, in July of 2011-is a truly stimulating place to be. Shanghai is one of the world's most vibrant cities, and the Shanghai Conservatory is ideally located in the heart of the old French district, within easy walking distance of a wide range of hotels, restaurants, and stores, and with convenient access to metro transportation.
