Clarification on ICTM 2013‏

42nd World Conference of the International Council for Traditional Music
11-17 July 2013
Shanghai Conservatory of Music
Deadline for all abstract submissions: 7 September 2012

The Program Committee, Local Arrangements Committee, and Secretariat for the 2013 ICTM World Conference have recently received a number of questions from potential participants concerning multiple presentations.

Simply put, a participant may have only one substantive role in the Conference, as a paper presenter, discussant, film presenter, or member of a roundtable. The only exception is that one may chair a panel or roundtable as well as make a presentation in that or another session. If you have already submitted more than one proposal, you will be asked to choose which proposal you wish to have evaluated by the Program Committee.

Please do not send your proposals (or requests to withdraw proposals) to the ICTM Secretariat or the Program Chair, but send them to the two email addresses listed under “Guidelines for Submission” on the conference website.
