Social Psychology of the Future: A Virtual Mini-Conference - Call for Submissions

16.02.2022, by Hannah Schäfer in announcement

June 2nd and June 3rd, 2022
Submission deadline: March 16th, 2022

We invite submissions to a virtual mini-conference taking place June 2, 3pm-6pm PT (UTC-8) and June 3, 9am-12pm PT (UTC-8). The mini-conference will bring together psychologists studying “people thinking about the future”, including work on utopian thinking, prospection, cognitive alternatives to the status quo, legacy motivations, radical imagination, imagining fictional or alternative worlds, prefigurative action and dystopian thinking. The intention of organizers is that many, but not all, of the presentations will address climate change and environmental issues.

Participation is FREE.
Submissions due March 16th, 9:00am PT (UTC-8).

All submissions will require title, authors, and a 250 word abstract. You will be able to choose which presentation formats you are interested in–a 10 minute talk, 20 minute talk, 30 minute talk, or poster.

Please submit your proposal here:
You can also propose another format such as a panel discussion, short workshop, or something else even more creative!

The mini-conference will be recorded and recordings will be made available to other participants, so there will be opportunities to view talks if you are not able to attend live. If you cannot make the conference at the scheduled times, there will be an option for some people to submit pre-recorded talks.

We encourage submissions from people of all career stages, backgrounds, and geographies.

Thank you!
