The scientific program of this meeting will reflect the dynamics and diversity of current worldwide research on aggression, which are of major importance with regard to both academia and society. In particular, three invited talks and a public lecture will add to the top-level scientific program.
In addition, other activities will also be integral part of the conference. These activities comprise the gala banquet, as well as guided city tours and other joint events, which will take place in Luxembourg and its greater region—France, Germany, and Belgium are all just within a 30 to 40-minutes drive!
Together with the broad range of social and communication activities, we are convinced this scientific world meeting will serve as an inspiring source for all attendees taking place in the very heart of Europe.
Two pre-conferences will serve as additional highlights:
XVII Workshop Aggression
The XVII. Workshop Aggression is an excellent opportunity to participate in the annual meeting of German-speaking aggression researchers. It aims particularly at discussing recent ideas and work-in-progress (Workshop language will be English).
The Workshop aims at bringing together scholars from different disciplines involved in aggression research. Starting as an entirely German-speaking event, the Workshop has increasingly attracted international researchers in recent years.
Due to the workshop nature of the pre-conference, young researchers are given the unique opportunity to discuss their approaches with experts in the field. This includes presenting and discussing recent ideas and preliminary findings as well as work-in-progress.
The main topic of this year’s Workshop Aggression will be “Aggression and Violence in children and adolescents”. Papers related to the main topic of the workshop are especially welcome. However, we also encourage submissions from all other fields of aggression research.
Young Investigator (YI) Program
The YI program is intended to encourage and assist people who are getting started or are in the early stages of their aggression research career. Building on its great success at the last two ISRA meetings, the 2012 YI program includes:
- A Pre-meeting YI Workshop. To facilitate career development by interaction with senior aggression researchers, the 2012 Workshop will focus on helping YIs with their own grant applications that are in planning, preparation or revision
- Planned but informal interactions with panels of mentors during the course of the meeting
- Networking with other young investigators and with members of ISRA
- Limited stipends for travel and meeting expenses will be available to applicants accepted into the program on an “as needed” basis.
