About Conference

You are cordially invited to attend the 47th ICTM World Conference, which will be held between 13 and 19 July 2023 at the University of Ghana, Legon.

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.
