The ASIMUT UGM is an annual, two-day event taking place in the springtime with participation of delegates from the ASIMUT user institutions and core members of the ASIMUT team. The main purpose is to discuss and prioritise future developments, promote knowledge sharing and networking among users, and provide training in new functionalities. But it is not all ASIMUT – we are delighted to host a forum where staff from the world’s best schools of music, drama and art meet, socialise and share professional knowledge and experience.
The first UGM took place in 2014 at the Royal College of Music in London. Since then, we met every year in April at a new school in a new city until COVID forced us to go online 2020-2021. Now we are really looking forward to meeting up in person again in 2022, with the backup plan and option of online participation in selected sessions, for those unable to travel.
The 2022 event will be hosted by RAMA, the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, where the idea of ASIMUT was born while Dennis was student council president and Mads was head of public relations and technical departments. The UGM is sponsored by ASIMUT software and the host institution, and participation is free of charge, including the meals mentioned in the agenda.
Participants must arrange their own travel and accommodation.
Sign up has ended, but feel free to join online.
