IFUSCO (International Finno-Ugric Students' Conference) is an annual international conference for and by the students of Finno-Ugric languages.

IFUSCO conference contains presentations on linguistics, ethnography, folkloristics, archaeology, history, museology, literature, translation theory, sociology, law, music, mythology, regional issues, education, economics etc., that are connected to the life of Finno-Ugric peoples.[1][2] Presentation, abstracts and slides languages are made in all Finno-Ugric languages as well as English, German and Russian.

History[edit]

IFUSCO was created in 1984 in Göttingen by local students of Finno-Ugric studies, to facilitate contact between other students. The conference was initially a small gathering that mainly served as a forum and as a way of exchanging information. The first IFUSCO had 26 participants from the Netherlands (Groningen) and Germany (Göttingen, Hamburg). Later it has turned into a conference format where lectures are given by and for students, and every year it is organized in a different city by a different university.

There have been 32 IFUSCOs, as in 2001 the conference was canceled. The first conference on the territory of Russia was held in 1999 in Syktyvkar.
