Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

mit großem Bedauern möchten wir Ihnen heute mitteilen, dass der gemeinsame Kongress von DGPs / ÖGP vom 13. bis 17. September 2020  abgesagt wird. Selbst wenn im September Reise- und Veranstaltungsbeschränkungen nicht länger in Kraft sein sollten, haben Ihre Gesundheit und Sicherheit die höchste Priorität für die Vorstände von DGPs und ÖGP. Da wir nicht erwarten, dass sich die Situation im Zusammenhang mit COVID-19 so schnell entspannt, haben wir schon heute entschieden, nicht länger zu warten und den Kongress sofort abzusagen.
Wir haben auch kurz die Möglichkeit eines digitalen Kongresses diskutiert, sind aber zur Überzeugung gekommen, dass er nicht den Zweck des Kongresses erfüllen würde.
Die DGPs plant aber eine virtuelle Mitgliederversammlung. Details folgen. Es gibt auch die Möglichkeit, dass ein DGPs-Kongress in Wien 2024 veranstaltet werden könnte, vorausgesetzt wir finden einen passenden Termin und die Mitglieder der DGPs stimmen zu. Das wird wahrscheinlich schon ein Thema auf der virtuellen Mitgliederversammlung im September.
Alles Gute für Sie in diesen außergewöhnlichen Zeiten, die Vorstände von DGPs und ÖGP und das DGPs / ÖGP Kongress-Team

 

Dear colleagues,

It is with sincere regret that we hereby wanted to let you know that the joint congress of the DGPs / ÖGP from September 13th to 17th, 2020, has been cancelled. Even if travel and event restrictions would no longer apply in September, your health and safety have the highest priority for the boards of DGPs and ÖGP. As we do not expect the situation surrounding COVID-19 to resolve so quickly, today we decided not to wait any longer and to cancel the congress straightaway.
We also briefly discussed the possibility of a digital congress, but concluded that it would not serve the purpose of the congress.
DGPs plans a virtual meeting of its members though. Details will be announced later. There is also the prospect of a DGPs congress in Vienna in 2024 if we can find a suitable date and DGPs members' approval. This will probably also be a topic of the upcoming virtual members' meeting in September.
All the best for you in these exceptional times, The boards of the DGPs and ÖGP, and the DGPs / ÖGP Congress Team

52. DGPs Kongress / 15. ÖGP Konferenz 

September 13. bis 17., 2020, Wien

Vom 13. bis 17. September 2020* findet an der Universität Wien der 52. Kongress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Psychologie (DGPs) / die 15. Tagung der Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Psychologie (ÖGP) statt. Im Namen der DGPs laden wir Sie herzlich zu dieser wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltung ein. 

Das Motto, "Psychology links", steht 2020 ganz im Zeichen der Verbindungen und Verbundenheit. Psychologie ist nicht nur akademische Disziplin, sondern auch gelebte praktische Tätigkeit in vielen nicht-akademischen Berufsfeldern. Unserem Motto entsprechend hoffen wir, mit der wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltung den Dialog zwischen Forschung und Praxis, zwischen Anwendungs- und Grundlagenforschung, und allgemein den Austausch zwischen und den Zusammenhalt unter uns Menschen zu befördern. Wir haben die folgenden Webseiten der Einfachheit halber weitgehend in Englisch gehalten, um auch unseren ausländischen Gästen einen leichten Informationszugang zu gewähren.

*Die Vorträge und Präsentationen beginnen am Montag, dem 14. September. Pre-Konferenz Workshops und ein informelles Treffen am Abend (Selbstzahler) finden am Sonntag, dem 13. September, statt. Einzelne Workshops können auch schon am Samstag, dem 12. September, stattfinden.

A warm welcome to the DGPs/ÖGP congress 2020 in Vienna!

As Presidents of the 52. DGPs congress / the 15. ÖGP conference, we are delighted to welcome you to this academic event. Organised and hosted by the DGPs with support from the ÖGP, the event will take place in September 2020 in the beautiful city of Vienna.

Vienna has already quite a reputation for psychology: Sigmund Freud and Charlotte Bühler, Franz Brentano and Marie Jahoda called it home. However, this is the past, while the congress lies ahead of us to reinvigorate the intimate relation between city and discipline: We are over the moon since we know that you, our highly appreciated friends and colleagues, will pay us a visit in Vienna. Here is how we prepare for your visit.

Firstly, we could have moved to one of the huge anonymous conference facilities that so many cities now offer, where you could fall asleep in one venue and wake up in another without noticing, as everything in these concrete blocks looks universally similar. Instead, we wanted to share University of Vienna’s true inner-city-Ringstrassen feeling with you. Therefore, we chose the University of Vienna as the venue. The conference will be held in the traditional main building of the University of Vienna, built in the late 19th Century under the architect Heinrich Ferstel. The main building has been partly refurbished recently. You will see some nicely renovated rooms. However, we have to compromise for some come-togethers, as our AudiMax is in all likelihood too small to accommodate all of us. With three keynotes in parallel, we hope to alleviate this incommodity a little. Take the opportunity and indulge a keynote off your beaten track if you find the AudiMax already stuffy.

Secondly, the social event, our “Gesellschaftsabend”! For as long as we all can think back, it has been on a Wednesday, hasn’t it? Please take our apologies, for braking with this tradition. We shifted to Tuesday, as this will give us the opportunity to celebrate in the ballroom of Vienna’s town house. Please note already today that therefore DGPs subdivisions (“Fachgruppen”) will have to meet on Wednesday instead.

Thirdly, we will try a novel way of poster presentations. Due to heightened fire security requirements, it is difficult to find a room for hundreds of posters, but it is also difficult to find a time for a single poster session. We therefore opted to present the posters throughout the whole conference, in parallel to the other presentations. If you present a poster, you can now show it for several hours (but we will kindly ask you for your presence at the poster for only a shorter period within these time slots). We also intend to hang the posters at different places, but be assured that all poster locations are along the ways that the crowd covers anyways, such as to and from coffee serving. We, thereby, hope to get more out of the posters than hitherto, but we should all please keep in mind that for this to work out, all of us should take our time to pay the posters a visit as often as possible.    

In closing, let us link back to the motto of the congress: Psychology links. We invite you to not only meet in Vienna, but to intellectually and emotionally link to one another and to the ideals of liberty, tolerance, and unity at the foundation of our valued scientific discipline, Psychology.

Looking forward to meeting you all for a congress that we shape together!

Ulrich Ansorge & Christian Korunka
