17 -ти Европейски конгрес по психология – ECP 2022
5-8 юли 2022 г.
17th European Congress of Psychology – ECP 2022
5-8 July, 2022.
The Scientific Programme Committee is pleased to invite colleagues from around the world to submit their abstracts for papers to be presented at the 17th European Congress of Psychology – ECP 2022.
The goal of ECP 2022 is to provide a forum in which the wealth of research findings, practices, and theories can be evaluated in light of the opportunities, but also the responsibilities, that psychology has as a hub science in modern society. Given the new challenges psychologists face in dealing with people from increasingly diverse cultural backgrounds, the lack of social and economic security, the climate crisis, and the mental health issues recently brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that psychology’s contributions to society have never been more important.
ECP 2022 opens the space for discussion of current trends and cutting-edge research, as well as new advances in different areas of psychology and across disciplines. The Scientific Programme Committee encourage submissions that approach the ECP 2022 main theme Psychology as a Hub Science from different perspectives. However, submissions on other topics are also welcome, and sessions on a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives are encouraged.
ECP 2022 offers delegates the opportunity to submit research findings or professional experiences from the field in different formats: symposia, thematic sessions (papers), posters, workshops, and pro et contra discussions. In order to create coherent sessions and a grouping of similar papers, authors are asked to choose a thematic area that best describes and most closely matches the content of their abstracts.
All authors are requested to read the submission guidelines before submitting an abstract.
Abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in the special edition of the Slovenian online journal Horizons of Psychology prior to the ECP 2022.
Guidelines for Abstract Submission
Abstracts are a comprehensive summary of authors’ oral or poster presentations of their original research, projects, or changes in practice.
The submitted abstracts must contain the title (up to 20 words) and the main body (up to 300 words). The contents should include the objective, method, results, conclusions, and should be written in a single paragraph (i.e., should not contain distinct, labelled sections). No references, tables and figures can be included in the abstract. An abstract that has already been published cannot be submitted.
The abstract must first identify the presenting author, who will have to register for ECP 2022 in order to present findings from their research or practice. As the primary contact for the abstract, the presenting author is responsible for communicating with all co-authors about the acceptance of the abstract and obtaining conflict of interest disclosures from them.
Authors may choose an appropriate submission type from different ECP 2022 formats (times are estimated):
- Symposia: 3–5 presentations from different countries and a discussant around a common theme, issue or question of particular relevance. Each session will last for 90 minutes including discussion.
- Individual presentations: 15–20 minutes each including discussion in a chaired thematic sessions (90 minutes).
- Posters: printed-paper posters & e-posters will be displayed, and informal sessions will be organised for congress participants to interact with authors.
- Workshops: „learning by doing“ sessions with active audience participation will be scheduled for 90 minutes following the common structure: introduction, main activity, and reflective discussion.
- Pro et Contra discussions: 45-minute discussions on different, contemporary or/and controversial topics in psychology and related sciences (interdisciplinary).
The Scientific Programme Committee may reassign submitted presentations between formats at its discretion.
Abstracts must be submitted online via the online web forms only.
The submitter will be required to create a user account to submit an abstract.
In case you will not receive confirmation within 24 hours, please check your spam folder and in case of no confirmation e-mail, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The submission form allows authors to store their abstract as a draft and to make changes.
Scientific Programme Committee will review all submitted abstracts in collaboration with a panel of international experts according to the following criteria:
- Relevance to the conference’s main themes.
- Significance for theory, policy, and practice.
- Theoretical framework, conceptual rationale, or pragmatic grounding.
- Research method and design (research questions, context, participants, data sources, sampling, procedure, ethical issues).
- Clarity of results or preliminary results and conclusions.
- Overall quality and scientific originality.
Notification regarding abstract acceptance and scheduling will be sent to the submitting author together with detailed information and guidelines for the presentation.
Authors are solely responsible for the ethical and scientific content presented in the abstracts.
Abstracts must be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for the publication.
At least one author from each accepted abstract (i.e., the presenting author) must register to the ECP 2022 by 10 March 2022 for the abstract to be included in the final programme.
If more than three abstracts are submitted from the same presenting author, the Scientific Programme Committee may reject some extra abstracts to secure a balanced and varied scientific programme.
Please note that abstracts must be submitted before the deadline (i.e. 10 November 2021) in order to be sent to review for inclusion in the Scientific Programme of the ECP 2022.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in Ljubljana.
Best personal regards,

23rd Congress: the Rorschach Centenary Congress
Geneva, Switzerland (Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva)
The Rorschach Test will be 100 years old in 2021, and 2022 will mark the death of its creator, Swiss psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach. To celebrate this important centennial in the history of psychological assessment, the International Society of the Rorschach and Projective Methods (https://www.internationalrorschachsociety.com/) is organizing a special 23rd Congress: the Rorschach Centenary Congress. The Congress is to be held in Geneva, Switzerland (Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva) in July, 2022.
During the congress, we will be looking back at the history of the past 100 years and looking at how the use of Hermann Rorschach’s widely used test has developed. We will also be looking at how the method is being used at the present time and might be used in the future. In preparation for this event, the Organizing Committee is planning a rich variety of projects.
One of these projects, referred to as the MAP Project, involves creating a map that traces the routes by which the Rorschach was introduced in a country and how it developed until the present day.
To complete this project, all countries are called to participate. This is a collaborative world-wide endeavor which will mark the opening onto the next 100 years.
For information regarding your country to be included in this project and possible subsequent publications, and to help us bring this project to fruition, we would be grateful if you could provide us with information on:
•when the Rorschach came to your country,
•who brought the Rorschach to your country, and
•what institutions taught and currently teach the Rorschach in your country (universities, associations, continuing education organizations…).
Please let us know, in working with us, if there are any people or organizations in your country that could provide us with this information.
A detailed questionnaire will then be sent to them for this purpose.
We thank you in advance for your precious collaboration.
