Last year, 700 specialists from 64 countries took part.
All forms of dance are represented. Strictly non-profit. Not to be confused with festivals, workshops, competitions or open conferences.

The congress is organized by the Dora Stratou Dance Theater and the Greek Section IOFA, in collaboration with the International Dance Council CID. Its theme is in accordance with the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions adopted by the UNESCO General Conference.

The program includes:
- Presentation and discussion of original research reports (papers)
- Classes, lecture-demonstrations, video projections
- Performances by dance companies, duos or solos
- Exhibitions and sale of books, records, pictures, costumes, accessories etc.
- Visits to places of special interest, such as dance schools, museums, sites etc.
- Evenings where members can discuss in a relaxed setting.

While intended primarily for professionals, it is at the same time a trade fair and a participatory event, facilitating contacts with colleagues, informal discussions and individual initiative.

Submitting a presentation (research report, lecture-demonstration, class, performance, exhibition, projection) is optional. For each presentation a text must be sent before 30 July 2007.
Absentee delegates can register also; their presentations will appear in the printed program and will be included in the proceedings.
