Calling all worldwide music professionals and experts in digital industries, education, funding and more…

Being a community platform, the WOMEX Conference welcomes proposals from all areas and on a diversity of topics – you are the expert, thus you design the session including the speakers and the subject.

We welcome all kinds of conference topics: from basics to backgrounds, from live to recorded, and from roots to visions. The Conference is held in English.
