LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Museu José Malhoa (Caldas da Rainha, Portugal)


INFO: web -


THEME: Beyond the broad coast horizon: diversity and transversality in cultural heritage

DATES: 2-3 July (pre-congress activities) | 4-7 July (congress program)

PLACE: Museu Jose Malhoa, at the central park of Caldas da Rainha, on the west coast of Portugal, about an hour north from Lisboa

BRASS FOCUS: directed by Dr Arnold Myers, one of the most active experts on organology, to whom I personally and ANIMUSIC take the occasion to show our gratitude for his support to ANIMUSIC and his excellent long work dedicated to Organology. This Focus has the partnership of the Historical Brass Society, which has, for many years, made an important contribution to this specialized field.

ABOUT: In ANIMUSIC's international conferences, bridging in such a special way the spheres of Science and Art, participation from all subject areas is very welcome, this being an open community which is interested in research that deals, in any way, with sound and musical instruments. We look for relevant work and creative output, for practical demonstrations and performance, for workshops and exhibitions, proposing a space and time for positive exchange and discussions. Following the European Year 2018, and inspired by the wonderful coast of Portugal near our host, the Museum Jose Malhoa, located in Caldas da Rainha, the general theme of this congress appeals to considerations on the differences and the similarities of the various “coasts”, regions, creeds, customs, human and natural creations…, considering the links and transversality from and of knowledge and praxis: «Beyond the broad coast horizon - diversity and transversality in cultural heritage».


ANIMUSIC's Organological Congresses avoid parallel sessions and promote interdisciplinary involvement, purposely mixing the various areas of research (except on particular Sessions dedicated to the Focus, this year being brass instruments) – consequently, there is a limited number of accepted proposals in order to stimulate close contacts between the community and personal involvement in the supported activities, intermingling participants from all over the world. The location and date of the congresses are changed every year in order to promote visits to diversified places of cultural importance and new experiences in this amazing Portugal.


Deadline for paper submissions: 30th April

Other proposals: 31st May

Early-bird registration: 15th May
