Dear colleague,

This year’s ASPO conference will take place in Wageningen on 12 and 13 December 2019, hosted by Wageningen University’s Department of Social Sciences. 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. We are happy to inform you that the keynote speakers will be Prof. Astrid Homan (University of Amsterdam), and a second (international) keynote (TBA). 

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 and affiliations of the authors; an e-mail address for correspondence; explicitly indicate “Poster presentation”; 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 (Word-file as attachment) no later than Saturday 21 September 2019 to: aspo.uec@wur.nl.
  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 17 October 2019. 
  3. Accepted proposals will be included in the conference program

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

Sincerely,

On behalf of the 2019 ASPO conference organising team,

Michel Handgraaf
