The Institut fur Musikwissenschaft at Universität Leipzig (Germany) will host the International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology (SysMus), from 17th to 19th September, 2015. The SysMus conferences are annual, student-run events designed to allow advanced students in the field of systematic musicology – particularly those studying for PhDs or completing Masters’ degrees – to meet and discuss their research.Systematic musicology embraces a wide and diverse mix of epistemologies and methodologies from science and humanities in order to study the phenomenon of music in its general rather than specific manifestations.

Co-founded by Manuela Marin and Richard Parncutt in 2008, the SysMus conferences have been organized at different venues across the world (including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Italy, and the UK) and internationally renowned researchers working in various subfields of systematic musicology have attended SysMus as keynote speakers.

Proposed themes
Submissions on the following topics complementing and expanding experimental and empirical music research are particularly welcome:
– Audio cultures in a systematic perspective
– The cultural practice of musical instruments and music software
– Music and social cognition
– The ecology of music
– Music and mediation
– Systematic epistemologies of music
– Musical knowledge systems in a systematic perspective
– Music and the theory of social systems
