Call For Papers

«Strategies for the future of scientific and cultural knowledge and expression»
A special conference inviting all dealing with Sustainability, Heritage, Technology and Education, related to SOUND and MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. We provide a space and time to share concepts, discoveries, methodologies, experience, research and practical outcome from all fields touched by Organology - a greatly valued interchange of science and art.​
ANIMUSIC foments interdisciplinary cooperation, considered a vital key to the assessment of reality. This year's special Focus on Education is coordinated by our partner GEFAM (Switzerland); we encourage the inclusiveness of performance issues and singing. ANIMUSIC and partners welcome people from all over the world to participate in a unique meeting which gathers partakers involved in the present and future of culture, interested in knowledge exchange and open regarding different perspectives about the creative sound.

Porto has a rich patrimony which includes the impressive number of around 50 historical organs. It also has an important carillon, besides the famous Port wine... We are offering in the program a marvelous cruise up the unique Douro ("of gold") river, where the famous vineyards are cultivated on stone terraces.

INCLUDED: exhibition, concerts (also of historical organs in the cathedral and other magnificent churches), special discussion panels, a brain storm session, workshops and a pioneer MAKER'S LAB where makers have the chance to explain in detail their original inventions and show the participants the actual practice.

Please visit our website for more detailed information.

We welcome proposals for papers (15+5mn for questions and handover), panels (one hour), and posters, as well as demonstrations, videos, lecture-recitals (30 to 40 minutes) and full concerts (between one hour and one and a half hour). In addition, participants, namely inventors, makers and collectors, have the possibility to show a selection of their musical instruments or designs at the Exhibition. The ENCONTROIM is a special showcase offered by ANIMUSIC and the hosts, with no charge (the access is open and free to the general public). There is also a specific display area for books, scores, and other items, available during the conference days.
The common language for presentations is English. Papers may be read in Portuguese, Spanish, French or Italian, provided the PowerPoint projection is in English. We also provide direct translation from other languages if necessary and possible - please contact us if you need help.
We look forward to abstracts that describe original and technically excellent research from various perspectives. The title, abstract (in English or bilingual, of up to 300 words), and a biographical note (up to 100 words) should be received by email on or before the 31st May (2nd Call for Papers deadline). The results shall be communicated individually by middle June after being peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Papers presented at the Organological Congresses may be submitted for publication in the conference proceedings (books collection ‘Liranimus’ and online).

Please send proposals to


Given our extraordinary research area, we are very fortunate to be able to encourage practical demonstrations - we are indeed honoured and thankful to the generous offers of recitals, concerts and impromptus by the great musicians who have so much contributed to the natural involvement of our “always unique” meetings.

For the OC2017, we gratefully acknowledge our gracious hosts, the ‘Fundação Maria Isabel Guerra Junqueiro e Luís Pinto de Mesquita Carvalho’ and the Municipality of Porto, and the generous financial contributions from Dr Eng Giulio Salvadori and the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, Portugal, as well as all our other partners and supporters.
