Social and Community Psychology Conference 2021

This year, the 22nd Conference on Social and Community Psychology will be organized by the MAKS section of the Department of Psychology at the University of Oslo.



We invite researchers and Master level students of psychology to attend and present their work at the Social and Community Psychology conference on 25 and 26 November 2021. It is also possible to attend without presenting. Participation in the conference is free.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the conference will be organized as an online event, combined with meetings at local universities.

The draft of the conference program is now available

Aims of the Conference

  • To promote the opportunity for psychology students to gain experience with presenting scientific papers as well as to get feedback on their work by experienced researchers in social and community psychology
  • To give experienced researchers in these fields the possibility of an annual professional and social meeting, and to present their research
  • To advance the communication between social and community psychology and other areas of research within psychology and the social sciences, as well as between researchers and practitioners


The conference will be organized in thematic sessions of oral presentations (15 minutes per presentation). Due to the online nature of the conference, there will be no poster session. We will schedule two parallel sessions except during the lunch events.

We encourage participants who are located in the same city to organize joint participation if they are fully vaccinated and follow all local recommendations. We will organize such a joint viewing at one of the Oslo locations.
