CHIME's 20th International Conference will be held in Los Angeles between 29 March and 2 April 2017. The hosting institution is the World Music Center of the Department of Ethnomusicology, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, with generous sponsorship from the UCLA Confucius Institute, the European Foundation for Chinese Music Research (CHIME), the Fudan-UC Center on Contemporary China, the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies, the UCLA Asia Pacific Center, and the UCLA Program on Central Asia.

Conference themes: The main theme of the conference is "Chinese and East Asian music in Festivals." In acknowledgement of the ongoing Dunhuang project collaboration between UCLA, the UCLA Confucius Institute and the Getty Center, a second theme is performing arts of western China and its neighbours. In addition, as always, we are interested in new research on other aspects of Chinese and East Asian music.
