Congresso de Organologia 2015
The Organological Congresses in Portugal are special international events which provide the opportunity to present the latest scientific and experimental results in the study of sound and musical instruments, offering practical demonstrations by excellent performers. We foster communication between experts and the general public, promoting dialogue about the cultural patrimony, while at the same time forwarding the most advanced theories, technologies, and applications in a broad interdisciplinary way. We are creating a special platform for inventors and makers to show their work and have them directly available at the "ENCONTROIM". We also welcome schools, collectors, museums, research institutes, all who are involved in this area and the general public, to participate as fundamental contributors for the development of our field.

[The common language is English due to the international character of these meetings.]
