News: The RISM Brazil group was reactivated in 2005 by André Guerra Cotta (†), Beatriz Magalhães Castro and Pablo Sotuyo Blanco. Since then, the group has regularly participated at the IMS Conference in Zürich (2007), IAML Conference in Amsterdam (2009), and the RISM Conference 2012: Music Documentation in Libraries, Scholarship, and Practice. It organized the 1st RISM Brazil Seminar in 2012 at Rio das Ostras under the auspices of the Universidade Federal Fluminense.
