Virtual Conference Workshop Announcement – 70 Years of Attachment Research: A Multidisciplinary Social Neuroscience Perspective

We are pleased to invite you to our virtual conference workshop with the title “70 Years of Attachment Research: A Multidisciplinary Social Neuroscience Perspective” on August 12-13, 2020.

The workshop is part of ongoing activities of the Special Interest Research Group (SIRG) on The Social Neuroscience of Human Attachment (SoNeAt) as part of the Society for Emotion and Attachment Studies (SEAS), co-hosted by SoNeAt coordinating board president Pascal Vrtička (University of Essex, UK). It is being organised in cooperation with Tsachi Ein-Dor (IDC Herzliya, Israel), PI of a new longitudinal and multidisciplinary venture called Project Alpha, investigating the genetic and epigenetic underpinnings of psychological development, comprising parent-child attachment.

The conference workshop will be held over zoom and organised within the time zones of British Summer Time (BST, UTC +1) and Israel Daylight Time (IDT, UTC +3).

In our workshop, we are bringing together experts from various fields of attachment around the globe, providing insights into the last 70 years of theory development and research, with a special focus on social neuroscience.

Experts will present keynotes with time for interaction with the audience and one additional hour at the end of each workshop day will be dedicated to virtual socialising.

Furthermore, we would like to invite ECRs to present short virtual posters (submission deadline: June 30, 2020 – now closed) on new and emerging research questions showing where the field is currently heading. The virtual workshop is open to a wider audience without the need for presenting.

For timely information, please follow the SIRG SoNeAt on Twitter (@SIRG_SoNeAt). Information pertaining to the virtual workshop will be marked by #SoNeAt_Workshop2020.
