Dear colleague,

This year’s ASPO conference will take place in Tilburg on 16 and 17 December 2021, hosted by Tilburg University’s Department of Social Psychology. The conference will be held in-person at Tilburg’s LocHal https://lochal.nl/.

As you know, the ASPO conference is an ideal setting to meet and reconnect with other social psychologists, present your work, and stay up-to-date 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. Keynote addresses will be announced in September. Plans for the conference will be updated in accordance with any changes in health guidelines and government recommendations. 

You are now 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. Symposium (up to 4 presentations)

Symposia should ideally combine junior and senior researchers from different universities. Usually a symposium consists of 4 presentations on a related topic. Other types of symposia are also possible, such as a debate session or a panel discussion. Please include the following information in your proposal: A symposium title; names and affiliations of the organizers and of the authors; an e-mail address for correspondence; a general abstract; and a maximum of four specific abstracts (each one of up to 250 words). 

B. Individual presentation 

This is a regular talk. Please include the following information in your proposal: A title for your presentation; names and affiliations of the authors; an e-mail address for correspondence; explicitly indicate “Individual presentation”; an abstract of up to 250 words.  

C. Poster presentation 

The best poster presentation will be selected during the conference and will be awarded the Dancker Daamen award. Please include the following information in your proposal: A title for your presentation; names, e-mail addresses, and affiliations of the authors; an abstract of up to 250 words. 

The submission procedure is as follows:  

1. Submit your proposal for a symposium, individual presentation, or poster presentation (before Friday, 24 September 2021) at the following link: https://tilburgss.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3NRgD3PlLXC3FOu

2. The program committee will select submissions. We aim to inform you whether your proposal was accepted or rejected by e-mail at or around 22 October 2021.  

3. Accepted proposals will be included in the conference program.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further questions at a.m.evans@uvt.nl. We look forward to reading your proposals, and to seeing you all at the ASPO conference!

Sincerely,

On behalf of the 2021 ASPO conference organizing team,
