SoDoc 2020

SoDoc is going online! New date: 14.-16.09.2020

What is the SoDoc workshop?

It is an annual workshop of the Social Psychology Section of the German Psychological Society (DGPs). It provides the opportunity to present ongoing PhD projects and to receive feedback from fellow graduate students and experienced experts.

For this upcoming SoDoc, we are happy to announce the following expert teachers:

balliet   Prof. Daniel Balliet

   VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands



corcoran   Prof. Katja Corcoran

   University of Graz, Austria



degner  Prof. Juliane Degner

  University of Hamburg, Germany



deutsch   Prof. Roland Deutsch

  Julius-Maximilians University Würzburg, Germany




Over sixty PhD candidates submitted their projects for SoDoc 2020.
Before Corona, we decided to have two presentations formats: Group sessions and a poster session. Now, with SoDoc going online, we decided that all presentations are going to be talks.

We want to encourage you to present your projects in a transparent manner. In contrast to most conferences, where it is usually about “showing off” (i.e., presenting only the bright sides of one’s research), we hope we can create an open atmosphere, in which discussions about problems, failures, and concerns are welcome. We think that benevolent but honest discussion of your work is arguably most helpful for everyone.

Group Sessions

There will be four expert teacher groups with nine talks each, which include time for discussion. These talks will be allocated to five group sessions during the workshop. Accordingly, each session will consist of two project presentations, 45min per project. Originally, the talks were selected and grouped based on the fit of the project to the teachers’
expertise. We still kept that in mind but had to reallocate some talks to fit the new online format and schedule, so you might find yourself in a new group.
Please prepare a presentation of your project. Each project has a 45min timeslot. Given that one goal is to profit from questions and discussion, you should prepare a presentation of approximately 15-20 minutes. During your talk, you share your screen with your group

Open Science Workshop

Currently, open science is one of the most important and most discussed issues in social psychology. We want to integrate this into the SoDoc 2020; therefore, we will organize an open science workshop.

Participation Fees

There will be no participation fees.


Here you find the updated  SoDoc schedule. Participants are welcome to join an informal, online get-together Monday night (September 14th) at 7pm. Tuesday and Wednesday will be the official workshop days for the online format of Sodoc 2020. In addition to the group sessions and the open science workshop, there will be keynotes by our expert teachers and an "ask the expert"-panel in which you get to ask.
