ESCON 2021 in Salzburg

September 13th-16th, 2021


The organizing committee of the ESCON Transfer of Knowledge Conference 2021 is looking forward to welcoming you in Salzburg, September 13th -16th, 2021!

This meeting is organized by the Social Psychology Unit of the Department of Psychology, University of Salzburg.

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. Deadline for the submission of your contribution is March 31th, 2021. You can submit your abstract and information here. Those who wish to attend the meeting without presenting a paper are encouraged to register by June 30th, 2021. Finally, PhD candidates developing cutting-edge research are encouraged to apply to the Best Paper Award.
