Meeting of the Belgian Association for Psychological Science, Thursday May 28th 2015

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for presenting current psychological research at Belgian universities as well as to provide state of the art reviews in specific areas of interest to members, essentially by means of thematic sessions and symposia. The conference aims to cover all areas of psychological science.

This year we have two invited keynote speakers. Our first speaker is Natalie Sebanz (Central European University Hungary), who will speak about "Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms of Joint Action". To accompany this keynote talk, there will be a symposium to showcase research on social neuroscience carried out in Belgian universities, organized by Frank Van Overwalle (VUB). Our second speaker is Todd Braver (Washington University), who will speak about "Flexible Neural Mechanisms of Cognitive Control". To accompany this keynote talk, there will be a symposium to showcase research on proactive control carried out in Belgian universities, organized by Eva Van den Bussche (VUB) and Bart Aben (VUB).

Thematic symposia will cover areas such as cognitive and experimental psychology, forensic psychology and developmental psychology. The following symposia have already been confirmed:

  1. Prevention and Management of Sexual Violence (Organizer: Kasia Uzieblo, Thomas More/UGent)
  2. Cognitive stimulation programs: How effective are they? (Organizer: Steve Majerus, Université de Liège)
