The EASP Meeting on Intergroup Communication aims to gather European and abroad scholars, junior and senior researchers whose work pertains to intergroup communication in a diverse, interdisciplinary framework. Information, updates and instruction for submissions can be found on the Meeting website.

The Meeting will accept contributions on classic and emerging themes of Intergroup Communication around four pillars:

  • IC Processes: such as defining ingroup-outgroup boundaries, norms and roles of intergroup behaviours, accommodation, impression formation.
  • IC Functions: such as emphasizing status differentials, maintaining power, expressing hate, hostility, or aggression, or negotiating intergroup common goals.
  • IC Contexts: such as extremism and terrorism, reconciliation, inter-religion dialogue, gender identity, migration, new political social movements, online communities, fair language.
  • IC Means and Tools: verbal, such as linguistic biases, public discourse, metaphors, humour and jokes, and non-verbal, such as mimicry, dressing styles, facial appearance, dance, music, imagined interactions.

Deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019.
Late submissions will be processed if there will be sufficient space left on the Program. All submissions should be completed online.

The Department of Psychology is located in the centre of Bologna and is very convenient to reach hotels, restaurants, and amenities of the medieval arcades, streets, and monuments. Alma Mater Studiorum was established in 1088 and it is known to be the most ancient University in Europe. Noteworthy are the Archiginnasio as the ancient site of the University and the anatomic theatre

Bologna is also very attractive for foreign colleagues for its location, as it is very well connected to other Italian cities, such as Venice (1 hour by train), Florence (30 minutes by train), Rome (2 hours by train), Naples (3 hours by train) and Milan (1 hour by train).

The (early) registration fees will be 80 EUR for junior participants (PhD students and post-doctorate) and 150 EUR for senior participants. The fee will be reduced for individuals who (according to their declaration) cannot afford regular fees. For any information please contact the Organisation Team in Bologna:

We look forward to meet you in Bologna,
