Reminder: New Submission Deadline for the International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology (SysMus14) is May 8, 2014

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 researchers.

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 8, 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!
