What are the trade-offs of the different models? How could we design a correct test of CDT? How to assess the cognitive dissonance/disanxiousuncertlibrium/anxiety state and what is its exact role? How to predict regulation in natural settings? What is the future of CDT? Should we abandon some theories? How to propose, improve, or promote, a general model?
We would like to orient the meeting toward participation and resolution. The general organisation is designed in line with this purpose. The meeting should allow researchers to bond and cooperate in the form of small research teams. The place is a castle domain with a park that is isolated in the countryside but at only 45 minutes from the Rennes International Airport (50km) and the Rennes main station (50km). We will set up collective shuttles to facilitate the arrival. The place will be fully reserved for the meeting and researchers will be able to group-up and discuss as long they would need to.
A small conference fee will apply (with a discount for PhD students). This fee will cover costs for housing, catering, and transportation from the airport/train station to the site.
We invite researchers to attend and submit a brief application specifying their reason for attending. Applications will be selected based on specified interests and motivation, as well as on diversity of topics, gender, and career position. Participants will have the opportunity to propose and participate in sessions. If you are interested in participating, please fill in this form: http://bit.ly/355IqR2.
