Dear ASPO members,

You are cordially invited to the ASPO 2023 conference. It will take place at the Railway Museum in Utrecht on the 20th and 21st of April 2023. The conference will be hosted by Utrecht University’s Department of Social, Health, and Organisational psychology. As you know, the ASPO conference is an ideal setting to meet and reconnect with other social psychologists, present your work, and stay tuned with recent research developments in social psychology in the Netherlands. The conference language is English, and we welcome submissions from both junior and senior researchers. We are happy to inform you that the keynote speakers will be Alexandra Freund and Wilco van Dijk

You are invited to submit a proposal to present your work at the annual ASPO conference. You can submit one of three types of proposals (note that data collection and analysis should be completed at the time of submission):

A. Presentation 
A presentation is a talk of 12 minutes. Please include the following information in your proposal: A title for your presentation; the name and affiliation of the author(s); an e-mail address for correspondence; explicitly indicate “single presentation”; and an abstract of up to 250 words.

B. Symposium (3 or 4 presentations)
A symposium can consist of three or four presentations that center around a common theme. Symposia should ideally combine junior and senior researchers from different universities. Please include the following information in your proposal: A symposium title; the names and affiliations of the authors; a name and e-mail address for correspondence; a general abstract describing the symposium (max 250 words); and three/ four presentation abstracts (each one max 250 words).
