The first V-EAPL Conference, September 23-25 – all talks are online!

Dear attendees of the virtual EAPL conference,

On behalf of the European Association of Psychology and Law (EAPL), we want to thank you for attending our first virtual conference on September 23-25. We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this virtual event was to bring together academics from around the world in an open dialogue. Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive attitudes are appreciated. We encourage you to reach out to each other beyond our annual conferences, especially in these difficult times.

The recordings of the sessions can be found on our OSF Meeting page (https://osf.io/meetings/VEAPL2020). You can find the blitz talks, meet the expert and interactive sessions, as well as the round-table discussions. We wish you all the best and hope you continue to be engaged with the EAPL.

UPDATE! Conference in 2022

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

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is with sincere regret that we have to announce that the EAPL conference in Cluj-Napoca is postponed until 2022. The decision to cancel has unfortunately become unavoidable. Even if travel and event restrictions might no longer apply in 2021, it is impossible to plan for such an event in the moment. We are extremely grateful that Laura Visu-Petra and her team are willing to host the conference in Cluj-Napoca in 2022 as well. Exact dates will be announced later. So we look forward to seeing you in 2022 in Romania. Stay healthy!
The EAPL board
