Organized by Małgorzata Kossowska, Marcin Bukowski and Maciej Sekerdej (Institute of Psychology, Jagiellonian University and Centre for Social Cognitive Studies Krakow

The Social Psychology department of the Institute of Psychology (Jagiellonian University) has a long lasting tradition of organizing small annual seminars, during which researchers from Poland and occasionally from other countries (e.g., UK, Spain, Israel) are invited to share their newest ideas and discuss their work.

The main objective of this seminar was to promote research that bridges the social cognition and intergroup relations approach. This seminar provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the possible benefits coming from a more integrative approach to these two research paradigms in social psychology.

Researchers from Cardiff University, CIS-IUL and ISCTE from Lisbon, Jagiellonian University, Polish Academy of Science, University of Granada, University of Jena, University of Warsaw, University of Wrocław, and Warsaw School of Social Science and Humanities participated in this conference.

This seminar was organized with support  from the Regional Activity Grant awarded by the European Association of Social Psychology.
