June 25-27, 2014, Verona, Italy
July 5-7, 2014, Leuven, Belgium
The aim of the small group meeting is to provide a platform for researchers who examine psychological processes using a cultural lens within the European context. To date, much of the ork in cultural and cross-cultural psychology has been conducted comparing Western (e.g., North American cultures) and Eastern cultures (e.g., East Asian cultures). Cultural groups in Europe are distinct from North American and East Asian counterparts due to very different historical, political and economic circumstances. In an era where Europe faces enormous economic and social challenges and governments must make difficult choices about social equality and financial stability, the meeting aims to discuss the role of culture within the European context and promises important insights into the psychological reality of its citizens. The meeting also sets out to advance our theoretical understanding shifting the attention of (cross-)cultural research towards dimensions beyond individualism-collectivism. The meeting will host around 30 participants and thus will facilitate the exchange and discussion between researchers at all stages of their career.
The meeting will conveniently take place in geographical and temporal proximity to the 17th EASP General Meeting as to facilitate attendees’ travel to Amsterdam. If you are interested in participating, please send an email including title, abstract (max. 250 words), contributing authors, and the contact details of the presenter to Ayse K. Uskul (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Matthias Gobel (email@example.com) before 31 January 2014.
There will be no participation fees. Costs of accommodation and meals will be partially covered. Please feel free to contact the organizers for any questions. We look forward to this exciting meeting and receiving your abstracts.

The Executive Committee of the European Association of Social Psychology invites colleagues to meet with editors and former editors of the EJSP (the association’s flagship journal). The purpose of the meeting is twofold: to discuss factors that increase chances of getting published and to identify issues that researchers struggle with. The workshop is intended for colleagues at different stages of their career who would like to have a chance to discuss the publishing process directly with the editors who handle their work.
The workshop will take place on the 8th of July for half a day (afternoon). The current editors of EJSP (Prof. Ernestine Gordijn and Prof. Tom Postmes) and former editors Prof. Alex Haslam and Prof. Russell Spears will lead the workshop. In this, editors will explain the editorial process and clarify how submissions are evaluated. After this, participants have the opportunity to discuss the publishing process in small groups with one of the editors and raise issues they have faced or ask questions. A plenary session at the end will be used to summarize key points from the discussions and to identify key strategic and policy issues. This discussion can serve as input for the organization of future activities and workshops to help members prepare their research for publication.
Participation is limited to 60 people and will close when this number is reached.
September 4-6, 2014, Princeton, NJ, USA
To address the psychological implications of social class, especially at this time of economical crisis, a small group conference on ”The Great Recession and Social Class Divides” is being held at Princeton University (Princeton, NJ), September 4-6, 2014. This is a joint Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI)-European Association of Social Psychology (EASP) conference, and will focus how belonging to different social classes influences various social psychological processes, along with the ways that the current context of economical crisis affects these psychological processes differently depending on the social class to which people belong. We aim to present a comprehensive summary of the social class and economical crisis literature as it affects several psychological processes, including trust, group deservingness, identity, educational attainment, stereotypes, ideologies, and group behaviors. Potential attendees must be a member of SPSSI or EASP or both. Abstracts describing new empirical work (300 words) should be submitted by email to Susan T. Fiske (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Miguel Moya (email@example.com), by the deadline of April 30, 2014. The cost of registration and attendance will be offset by funding support provided by SPSSI, EASP, and Princeton University.
