Emeritus Professor, School of Music Studies,
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece

The members of the Hellenic Musicological Society are pleased and honored to welcome musicologists from around the world to Athens-Greece, where the 21st Quinquennial Congress of the International Musicological Society (IMS2022) will be held under the auspices of the Departments of Music Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

from Prof. Daniel K.L. Chua, 
IMS President, 2017–22,
Chair Professor, Department of Music, School of Humanities in the Faculty of Arts,
University of Hong Kong

As I write, protest and pandemic continue to disrupt our world, dividing and isolating communities. Just the thought of the 21st  Quinquennial IMS Congress on the near horizon, offers a ray of hope and glimmer of joy. It brings a smile to my face despite the grim reality around me. Hopefully, by August 2022 the virus will no longer distance us and confine us to Zoom, and we can gather as a community of musicologists as if reuniting with family and friends.

from Prof. Kate van Orden, 
IMS2022 Program Committee Chair,
Dwight P. Robinson Jr. Professor
of Music, Harvard University

Greetings! One of my great joys this year has been working with the Program Committee and our Local Organization Committee in preparation for the 21st Quinquennial IMS Congress in Athens. Learning about emerging trends across the globe, the strengths of our regional associations and study groups, and current priorities across the musicologies has been invigorating, and as our team works on programming for IMS2022, the prospect of coming together to share research and chart new trajectories for our fields has kept all our spirits aloft.

IMS2022 is a place for us to share research, develop knowledge, and exchange ideas. We follow international rules of academic integrity and conduct. Inappropriate behavior like plagiarism and the harassment of others undermines the principles of scholarship at the heart of our activities, especially when power relations are asymmetrical. If you observe inappropriate behavior, please consider reporting it to the IMS office.
