The Psychology of Extremism SPSP Preconference (online)

05.10.2023, by Ewa Szumowska in call for papers

Deadline: October 18, 2023

Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce the 4th edition of The Psychology of Extremism SPSP Preconference!

This preconference will bring together researchers that study various forms of extreme behavior in order to explore the psychological and biological commonalities they share. More information about the conference can be found on the website:

We invite submissions for data blitz and poster presentations that address topics in the broad field of extreme behaviors including (but not limited to) violent and political extremism, extreme diets, extreme sports, extreme love, extreme humanism, extreme groups, addictions, and obsessions. All levels and analyses (behavioral, neuro, genetic, cognitive) are invited and encouraged. We are seeking to represent the widest possible variety of approaches to the topic.

To be considered for the data blitz and poster sessions, please use the online submission portal to submit a talk title, list of authors and affiliations, and two abstracts (one 400-character abstract for the program; one 1200-character abstract for review purposes). The long abstract should describe the study goal, methods, and results. Please be sure to specify if you would like your submission to be considered for a data blitz (5-minute talk) or a poster. If you choose data blitz, your submission will automatically be considered for a poster if not accepted as a data blitz. People at all career stages are encouraged to apply.

Abstracts are accepted through the SPSP submission portal until October 18, 2023 (

If you have any questions, you can contact Ewa Szumowska ( or Erica Molinario (
