for Papers: International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology (SysMus14)

Dear all,

The Music, Mind and Brain group at Goldsmiths, University of London is
pleased to host the Seventh International Conference of Students of
Systematic Musicology (SysMus14) from September 18th-20th, 2014.
SysMus is an annual conference organized by students for students. It
provides postgraduate students opportunities to present their research
as oral papers or posters and to meet and discuss their own research,
while also enjoying keynote speeches by internationally renowned

SysMus14 will provide early career researchers a meeting place to
communicate their research and exchange ideas and concerns, while also
acting as a hub for fruitful discussions. It will serve as an
intersection point for many different kinds of research and approaches
related to the empirical study of music.

Systematic musicology is an umbrella term for a wide range of research
on themes including, but not limited to, music perception and
cognition, musical structure, music education, music therapy, music
and emotion, music and language, acoustics and psychoacoustics, and
computer music. Systematic musicology combines a mix of methodologies
from the sciences and humanities, including empirical psychology,
sociology, cognitive sciences and computing to neurosciences,
acoustics and physiology.

PhD and Masters level students are invited to submit an abstract (max
350 words) by May 1st, 2014 following the guidelines provided on the
SysMus14 website at http://www.musicmindbrain.com/#!sysmus-2014/cfmp.
Abstracts will be subject to a double-blind peer-review by a
Scientific Committee consisting of doctoral students and post-doctoral
researchers representing different fields related to the study of
systematic musicology. Decisions will be announced by June 20th. Talks
will be 20 minutes long, followed by a 10-minute discussion; posters
will be displayed throughout the conference and presented during a
designated poster session.

Further information about the abstract format, important dates,
registration, the venue, accommodation and travel is available online
on the SysMus14 website. Any specific questions may be directed to the

We are looking forward to welcoming you to London in September!
