Welcome to SysMus16 in Jyväskylä, Finland.


Thank you so much to all attendees for coming here and making the conference such a great success! 

The conference was organised by the Department of Music of the University of Jyväskylä, and the Finnish Centre for Interdisciplinary Music Research.

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.
