December 2004

EDITORIAL   Dear IMC members,

With the year 2004 coming to an end, the IMC Secretariat in Paris is pleased to present the new version of its news bulletin, offering you a concise overview of many of the important and relevant activities of the IMC community.

This year has been a busy one for the IMC Secretariat, and we would like to thank you for your collaboration in all our efforts; what we have accomplished so far couldn't have been done without you. We hope that you will also be able to join us for the activities scheduled for 2005, among which are the Music World Forum and the IMC General Assembly.

In the meantime, we send you our warmest Season's Greetings and wish you the best of success for your future activities!

The IMC Secretariat.
