General Invitation

We are honoured to invite you to participate in the 13th International Conference of the Répertoire International d’Iconographie Musicale (RIdIM) and the 1st Brazilian Conference on Music Iconography entitled Enhancing music iconography research: considering the current, setting new trends. The conference will be hosted by the RIdIM-Brazil Commission Mixte and the Federal University of Bahia in Salvador, Bahia (Brazil) in July 2011 through the joint efforts of the RIdIM Commission Mixte and the RIdIM-Brazil Commission Mixte.

About RIdIMThe Répertoire International d’Iconographie Musicale (RIdIM) is an international project sponsored by the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centers (IAML), the International Musicological Society (IMS), and the International Committee of Musical Instrument Museum Collections (CIMCIM) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
RIdIM was founded on 26 August 1971, during the meeting of IAML in St. Gall (Switzerland) on the initiative of Barry S. Brook, Geneviève Thibault Comtesse de Chambure, Harald Heckmann, Howard Meyer Brown and Walter Salmen. Since then RIdIM has been envisioned to fulfil a dual role: to provide control over and access to iconographic sources related to music, and to function as a framework for their interpretation. Thus, the main objective of RIdIM is the development of methods, means and research centres for the classification, cataloguing and study of iconographical sources related to music and to organise, promote and support research on music iconography. It is also designed to assist performers, historians, librarians, instrument makers, record manufacturers and book publishers in making the fullest use of visual materials for scholarly and practical purposes.
