We are happy to announce the next Social Cognition Network (ESCON) Transfer of Knowledge Conference in Salzburg, September 7th -10th, 2020!

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.

Everyone who self-identifies as a social cognition researcher is encouraged to submit their work for presentation. The deadline for the submission of your contribution is March 31st, 2020. 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, 2020. Finally, Ph.D. candidates developing cutting-edge research are encouraged to apply to the Best Paper Award.

ESCON is currently between funding programs. This means that in order to make ESCON 2020 possible, we are contacting potential sponsors but we still have to ask for a participation fee of € 220,- for juniors (Ph.D. students) and € 270,- for seniors (post-docs and professors).

Registration fees will include lunch packages on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, a conference dinner with a concert on Tuesday, snacks at the Welcome Reception on Monday and at the Farewell Party on Thursday. However, participants are asked to self-organize their accommodations. If you plan to attend, make sure to make reservations early! Salzburg is a popular tourist destination (especially between January and December).
