Contributing to TMT32

All VDT members and audio professionals are invited contribute actively to the congress programme. The programme shall be rich and colourful again, which is why we wish to encourage speakers from classic sound engineering as well as representatives from broadcasting, theatres and other live performance venues, production, science, engineering and art to submit fascinating contributions. Also, we would like our exhibitors to start thinking about what interesting product contributions they can make.

How to contribute

VDT Members

For contributing, please log in to MyVDT. All VDT members already have a MyVDT-Zugang and only need to choose the role "Contributor" within their profile and save the profile. Then the top menu item "Call" appears where you can create your contribution.

Experienced Contributors

Contributors who were active at the last two Tonmeistertagung's are already registered in MyVDT. They simply log in and then create a new contribution under the top menu item "Call".
The log-in doesn't work? Then you can reset your password. Furthermore, e.g. if you have forgotten your username or your email address is no longer valid, the office will help you.


It's your first time? A warm welcome! Please register to MyVDT first, and then add your contribution under the top menu item "Call". Further information can be found on this page below or directly in the submission portal. Do you have any further questions? Then program team will help you.

How we design the programme

A team of curators and program planners ensures that we get many exciting contributions for the Tonmeistertagung. The team specifically ask potential presenters to submit contributions. Contributions which are submitted through the call will be integrated into the appropriate sessions.

The program is therefore made up of actively invited contributions as well as those that are offered to us directly. This is how we achieve diversity! By the way: The earlier a contribution is submitted, the sooner the right environment for this contribution can be found.

Our Topics

We are especially keen to find the hot topics of 2023. Pre-selected subjects are already integrated into call portal . The scope will be adjusted continually as the call proceeds. So, feel free to bring up other fields of interest that are not on our list yet!

Each topic is curated by an expert team. The earlier you contribute and inform the programme team about your proposal, the earlier the fitting session is found where your contribution can be placed.

For students

We offer students reduced tickets for the Tonmeistertagung. At the exhibition and congress, in addition to gaining professional impressions, they can also expand their personal network in the industry.

Many training institutes and universities present themselves at the Tonmeistertagung as part of the Education Forum. In addition, we would like to encourage committed students to submit their exciting final theses to the congress program, as posters or as lecture.

We need many helping hands for a congress as large as the Tonmeistertagung. Students who would like volunteer to help run the event are welcome to contact us. We especially need people for the admission control in front of the halls as well as technical staff within the congress halls.

Also important:

Some contributions are prepared by more than one person. In principle, the person who submits the contribution is saved as the main author, is responsible for the contribution and is the first contact person for the program planning team. In the submission portal, additional co-authors can be selected from the list of registered authors. If someone is not yet on this list, he or she must first register in MyVDT as described above and thereby agree to the data storage (mandatory fields are name, mail address, phone number, country).

The main author can be changed by the program planning team if desired.
