Negotiating Challenges to Scientific Advancement: Disappointments, Delays, and Declines

Thursday, 7 March 2019 | 15:00 – 16:50 (3:00 – 4:50 PM) | Room 351

A critical aspect of scientific training is to develop constructive responses to outcomes that are not successful. Every successful scientist/professional has stories of rejected papers and proposals. Once an individual is successful, rejections can be placed in context. Early in a person’s career, the same rejections may be devastating. The difficulty of processing rejections may also prevent early stage researchers from hearing what is genuine in the critique of their work and to understand what might not be genuine. The WiCS panel will address these issues.

Artificial Intelligence in Psychological Assessment

Chair: Annemarie Hiemstra, Erasmus University Rotterdam

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 11:30 – 12:50 (11:30 AM – 12:50 PM) | Room 352A

Rapid developments in Artificial intelligence (AI), such as machine learning, are increasingly affecting human behavior. Psychology is needed to understand these influences. Furthermore, AI influences psychological science itself. Departing from work psychology and personnel selection, this symposium discusses how strengths of psychology and AI can be combined to improve assessment.

Chair: Raphaël Trouillet, University of Montpelier, University of Paul Valéry Montpellier, and Société Française de Psychologie

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 13:00 – 13:50 (1:00 – 1:50 PM) | Room 341

Clinical psychologists increasingly advocate that clinical training and practice should be based on scientific knowledge. This clinical science model showcases the primacy of scientific knowledge and training models in which science is fully integrated into all aspects of clinical training. The symposium examines exciting developments in clinical science and clinical science training from differing international perspectives.

Aha! New Insights about Insight

Eva Van den Bussche, Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Hans Stuyck, ULB and KU Leuven

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 13:00 – 14:20 (1:00 – 2:20 PM) | Room 352A

The sudden comprehension of a previously unsolved problem is often accompanied by the well-known Aha! feeling. However, the underlying cognitive processes that lead to this kind of insight remain unclear. In this symposium we will use a cross-scientific-domain perspective to elucidate the neurological and cognitive mechanisms behind the Aha! moment.

Contributions of Social Psychology to the Solution of Pressing Societal Problems

Chair: Kai Sassenberg, Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien & University of Tübingen

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 14:30 – 15:50 (2:30 – 3:50 PM) | Room 352A

Social psychology has a tradition of studying humans in contexts of pressing societal problems. Providing a deeper understanding of human behavior and its change, it can thus contribute to the understanding and solution of these problems. This symposium features contributions applying social psychology to environmental, media, and health related problems.

The Emergence of a Broadly-Defined European Cultural Psychology

Chair: Matthias Gobel, Brunel University

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 16:00 – 17:20 (4:00 – 5:20 PM) | Room 352A

This symposium is a starting point for a broadly-defined European cultural psychology. We explore what a European culture may entail, how acculturation within the European cultural contexts takes place, and under what conditions a multicultural Europe can be possible. We also discuss what is currently missing from this research agenda.

Personality Research Offers Windows into Psychological Development, Relationships, Success, Health, and Ageing

Chair: René Mõttus, University of Edinburgh

Friday, 8 March 2019 | 17:30 – 18:50 (5:30 – 6:50 PM) | Room 352A

Personality research draws on other fields of psychology, synthesizing the phenomena that they focus on. But it also has a lot to contribute in return, as highlighted in this symposium. One central contribution is showing how individuals are not passive recipients of external influences but actively create their own experiences.

Early Development of Superior Cognitive Functions

Chair: M. Rosario Rueda, Universidad de Granada

Saturday, 9 March 2019 | 10:00 – 11:20 (10:00 – 11:20 AM) | Room 352A

The early development of superior cognitive functions during infancy and toddlerhood has undergone enormous progress in the past decades, thanks to technological advancements and researchers’ creativity. In this symposium, we will discuss timely research in the early development of four cognitive domains: language, social cognition, action understanding, and executive attention.

Social Relations Within and Across Cultures

Kristine J. Ajrouch, Eastern Michigan University

Saturday, 9 March 2019 | 13:00 – 14:20 (1:00 – 2:20 PM) | Room 352A

We examine social relations in different ages and cultures. Yamamoto and Li consider cultural differences in children’s perceptions of parental support. Ajrouch and Antonucci examine race differences in friendship in the US. Vogel, et al. consider volunteering among German immigrants while Jackson reports on US cross-race friendships. Finally, Akiyama discusses social relations in Japan’s changing society.

Future Applications of the Social and Behavioral Sciences to Intelligence Analysis

Sujeeta Bhatt, US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Barbara Wanchisen, US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Saturday, 9 March 2019 | 16:00 – 17:20 (4:00 – 5:20 PM) | Room 352A

The evolving nature of national security threats requires intelligence analysts to utilize cutting-edge knowledge and methods. Social and behavioral science research (focused on human behavior and social processes) is critical to the development and application of methods used in intelligence analysis. Examples of cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research and applications are discussed.
