Welcome to SysMus 16 in Jyväskylä, Finland.


SysMus, or the International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology, is a series of conferences for students by students.

SysMus promotes systematic musicology as an interdisciplinary field by giving students who study music from computational, psychological, sociological and other non-traditional perspectives the opportunity to interact with each other and with successful professionals in the field.

The SysMus conference series offers students the chance to

  • practice conference organizing,
  • practice presenting their research,
  • visit internationally recognized institutions in systematic musicology, and
  • network in an interdisciplinary environment.
