About SysMus21

The SysMus conferences (International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology) are annual student-run events designed to allow advanced students in the fields of systematic musicology and music science – particularly those studying for PhDs or completing Masters’ degrees – to meet and discuss their research. Keynote speakers include internationally renowned researchers working in various sub-fields of systematic musicology and music science.

SysMus is dedicated to including a broad range of topics within its conferences, representative of the great diversity within systematic musicology: music perception, music cognition, music psychology, music therapy, music modelling, music information retrieval, musical acoustics, music theory and analysis, music sociology, music education, music technology, music and culture, music and semiotics, and music philosophy.

In November 2021 we are looking forward to seeing you in Aarhus, where Center for Music in the Brain (MIB) will host the conference in collaboration with Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS) and the Department of Musicology at Aarhus University. Join us for three days of music, talks, poster sessions, workshops, networking and social activities. And don't miss out on our satellite event "Music in the Brain" on November 2.

SysMus21 will be a hybrid conference with options for in-person and virtual participation.

SysMus21 is supported by Novo Nordisk Fonden, Carlsbergfondet, and ESCOM.
Participation is free. Travel grants are available for in-person presenters.
