The submission portals are now closed (the deadline for all submissions was December 20th, 2019)

We invite academic and research submissions in three different formats: Oral Presentation, Poster Presentation, and Symposium.

The conference committee will make a final selection of presentations, posters, and symposia based on scientific quality, relevance, importance, and impact. Unsuccessful submissions for oral presentations may be given the opportunity to present a poster instead.

All submissions should be related to one (or more) of the main themes of the conference:

  • The psychological, social, and societal factors shaping how we perceive and think about animals, human-animal relations, and animal welfare and rights
  • The impact of advocacy strategies related to animal rights, veganism, meat reduction and reduction of other animal products (e.g., dairy, eggs)
  • The social and behavioral science of animal cruelty, meat consumption (and other animal-product consumption), vegetarianism/veganism, and speciesism
  • The connections and intersections between human-animal relations and human intergroup relations as well as between animal ethics and other social justice domains including environmentalism, feminism, anti-racism
