On October 24-28, Maj Institute of Pharmacology Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków is convening a scientific workshop to explore key areas of affective-cognitive bias research in a unique forum that emphasizes discussion and collaboration between disciplines and career stages.

The meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary mix of people, from world-leading scientists to early career researchers. One of the key aims will be to highlight the latest advances in affective-cognitive bias research and identify key research questions that could bring a real impact to the field.

We welcome researchers from all backgrounds (psychologists, psychiatrists, behavioral neuroscientists, psychopharmacologists, etc.) to register for this meeting.

We strongly encourage early career researchers (PhD students) to take a part in the workshop, as we can offer them VERY ATTRACTIVE travel grants funded by NAWA (up to approx. 1860€/ 8000 PLN).

The workshop will be a great opportunity to:

  • Listen to some of the most inspiring international scientists in the field of affective-cognitive bias on a wide range of topics.
  • Showcase your work during the poster sessions and ‘student talk sessions’.
  • Meet with your peers and more established academics.
  • Increase your national and international networks.

The meeting will consist of a series of high-level thematic talks with an interdisciplinary approach to affective-cognitive bias research that bridges clinical and non-clinical fields. There will be plenty of space for structured and free-flowing discussions, during the scientific sessions and social events.

VENUE: Hotel Dwór Tomaszowice (the Tomaszowice Manor) is surrounded by an idyllic park and neighbors a classical Polish court (
