ESCON 2021

September 13th-15th, 2021

The organizing committee of the ESCON Transfer of Knowledge Conference 2021 is looking forward to welcoming you online, September 13th -15th, 2021! This meeting is organized by the Social Psychology Unit of the Department of Psychology, University of Salzburg.

We regret that the meeting cannot take place in Salzburg, as had been planned originally. We have decided to move the meeting to an online format. We made this decision since planning a conference in presence and without social-distancing would be too risky, escepcially because the corona incidences europe-wide and the proceeding of the vaccinations in fall is not clear at this point of time. However, we still want to host the conference. Thus we hope that an online meeting would at least somewhat compensate for a “real” conference.

As most of you know, ESCON’s main aim is to promote European research collaboration in social cognition. The annual Transfer of Knowledge Conferences (TKCs) are particularly instrumental for building cutting edge collaborative research programs as well as for the training, promotion and networking of junior researchers.

Everyone who self-identifies as a social cognition researcher is encouraged to submit their work for presentation. The deadline for the submission of a contribution has passed and all applicants have been informed about the decision of the rejection or acceptance of the contribution. Those who wish to attend the meeting without presenting a paper are encouraged to register by July 31st, 2021 by filling in the registration form (sent by email to the presenters) and/or by sending a short email to so that we can forward the form to you. Finally, we have a number of PhD candidates developing cutting-edge research who applied to the Best Paper Award. We started the selection procedure; short-listed applicants have been invited to submit a long version of their paper until July 23rd.
