In 2002 polyphony symposia were initiated on the basis of the International Research Centre, these are held every 2 years at Tbilisi State Conservatoire. The Symposia are held with the patronage of the Georgian President and financial support of the Georgian Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection. With its format and diversity of themes it occupies distinguished place among similar scientific forums and allows the researchers of world polyphony to share the results of recent studies to each other.
