Submission of proposals  

Submission of proposal for presentations at the Symposium should be send no later than January 20, 2020 by e-mail to the program chair: roma.kriauciuniene [ät]

Topic & Aim

This symposium series is to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to meet and to exchange experiences, findings and problems concerning moral competence and its development.

Possibility of publication: After the symposium presenters will be invited to submit a full-size paper to an international academic journal (will be specified later).

Note: Before the symposium apl. Prof. iR Dr. Georg Lind will offer a KMDD-Workshop (July 20 - 23, 2019).

Symposium formats


In order to allow many presentations, sufficient time for discussion, and a good basis for future contacts with colleagues,  the length of the presentations will be restricted to 15 minutes, and three slides containing the following: (1) Question(s), (2) Method(s), and (3) Finding(s) & Discussion. 

Some guidelines for writing a proposal could be found in the paper "Art of Experimental (Moral) Psychology." Presentations can also be on work in progress and reports about moral education projects.

These slides should be readable (minimum font size: 18), and not contain too much information or abbreviations.

As always in this symposium series, your proposal will be submitted to an open reviewing process. That is, you will get feedback from your reviewer(s) to improve your presentation, and you can discuss with his/her before the symposium. We might ask you to review proposals of others if they are linked to your area of expertise.

You will get a final letter of acceptance by March 2, 2020, and also a confirmation that the symposium will take place, so that you can book your travel and accommodation.
