UPDATE! Conference in 2023

Annual EAPL Conference in Cluj-Napoca (Transylvania, Romania) postponed (again) to 2023

Dear colleagues and friends,

we are very sad to inform you, that we decided not to organize a physical conference this year (2022). Too many factors are uncertain for the organizers in Romania (guided tours, travel, willingness to take the risk to travel, …). The very good news is that Laura Visu-Petra (@LauraPeVis) is still willing and even eager to organize the conference in 2023! We immediately fixed the dates as a function of availability of rooms at the university and of staff to help Laura. The dates will be July 4th (Tuesday) to July 7th (Friday) 2023.

Stay healthy, stay tuned! The EAPL board.

Retrospection of the 2019 conference in Santiago de Compostela

The 2019 EAPL conference took place in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, on July 17-20.  The scientific program was addressing the key issues in psychology and law. Different areas of forensic psychology and criminology were  explored, such as eyewitness testimonies, investigative interviews, lie detection and credibility assessment, risk assessment, recidivism, treatment of offenders and victims. Researchers and practitioners from Europe and other parts of the World were invited to share their recent scientific work and field experience concerning new challenges faced in legal processes.
