Tilburg Conference on Methods and Culture in Psychology

The Tilburg School of Behavioral and Social Sciences in conjunction with the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences and the Department of Social Psychology are happy to announce a symposium on Methods and Culture to be held on June 15, 2018!

The specific purpose of having this conference is that Fons van de Vijver (President IACCP, past-President EAPA) will be retiring this year from Tilburg University, the Netherlands. As a scientific farewell to him and to honor his contributions to the academic community, we are organizing a one-day conference that will include keynotes, symposia, individual paper presentations, and a farewell dinner.
