ESCON Transfer of Knowledge Conference, 2019
ESCON Transfer of Knowledge Conference, 2019

We are happy to announce that the next Social Cognition Network (ESCON) Transfer of Knowledge Conference will be organized at the University of Bordeaux, from September 2 to 4, 2019.

ESCON's main aims are to promote European research collaboration in social cognition and to help the transfer of knowledge from senior researchers to younger ones. The annual conferences are particularly instrumental for building cutting edge collaborative research programs as well as for the training, promotion, and networking of junior researchers.

ESCON is currently between funding programs. This means that in order to make ESCON 2019 possible, we are contacting potential sponsors but we still have to ask for a participation fee. Registration fees should remain modest and will include lunch and dinners. However, participants are asked to self-organize their accommodations. If you plan to attend, make sure to make reservations early! Bordeaux is a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer.

Bordeaux is a beautiful, lively, historic city situated in South West of the France. It is easily accessible by plane (Mérignac airport, 45 minutes from the center by bus), train or car. The University building where the conference will take place is located in the center of the Bordeaux (place de la Victoire) with restaurants and cafes (pedestrian quarters) just nearby. Ocean beaches are less than one hour by car, as are some prestigious vineyards.

Everyone who self-identifies as a social cognition researcher is encouraged to submit their work for presentation by May 15, 2019. Those who wish to attend the meeting without presenting a paper are encouraged to register by June 15, 2019. Finally, PhD candidates developing cutting-edge research are encouraged to apply to the Best Paper Award (see the link on the website).

Please check the conference website (ESCON2019) for further information.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to ESCON in Bordeaux !
