Call for Abstracts

The Brunswik Society will hold a virtual international meeting again this year. We invite abstracts of research on any theoretical or empirical (basic or applied) topic related to Egon Brunswik's theory of probabilistic functionalism, lens model framework or method of representative design. This includes recent expansions to topics such as ecological rationality. Research focusing on Ken Hammond's contributions to the Brunswikian tradition are also encouraged (e.g., multi-cue probability learning, inter-personal learning, inter-personal conflict, cognitive continuum theory). In addition, we would be interested in hearing about connections between (neo)-Brunswikian ideas and other perspectives. We encourage participation from scholars at every stage of their career, from student to emeritus.

Anticipated Format: 120min session on each day (short presentations, Q&A, and group discussion). We also hope to plan a social hour which would start 15mins after the end of the meeting on the 10th .

Participation: If you wish to present your paper then please send a title and brief abstract (125 words) to Mandeep Dhami (e-mail: by 15th October 2021. Alternatively, if you simply wish to attend and listen and/or contribute to the open discussions then please register your name, affiliation and email address with Esther Kaufmann by 3rd December 2021 in order to receive the Zoom meeting link (e-mail:
