This symposium brings together people who are actively involved in research in social psychology or related disciplines. It is a forum for the exchange of ideas, the discussion of theoretical and conceptual issues, presentation of current research, and the establishment and strengthening of formal research connections in this field.  

This year, the symposium is again sponsored and organised by the Centre for Research in Social Psychology (CRiSP) -- a centre based at the School of Psychology. This is a free event and lunch and refreshments will be provided. In the evening, there will be the traditional symposium party (with food, nibbles, wine and other drinks provided) at Fiona Barlow's house. Directions will be provided at the event.
