Following on the success of the first and second International Summer School in Systematic Musicology (ISSSM 2006 and 2007), ISSSM 2008 will be held for the last time at IPEM, the research centre of the Department of Musicology of Ghent University (Belgium). This year’s theme is 'Music interaction' and the courses will focus on current topics in the research field such as embodied music cognition, music information retrieval and music and interactive media. The school is aimed at graduate students working on their Master or PhD thesis, but it is open to any person carrying out research in this field.
ISSSM is a Socrates IP supported by the European Commission and involving several European universities. The project coordination and organization is in the hands of Prof. Dr. Marc Leman (http://www.ipem.ugent.be/staff/marc/).
