ACES 2022: The Annual Conference of Experimental Sociology

Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to announce the third Annual Conference on Experimental Sociology (ACES) at Utrecht University on August 31 – September 2, 2022.

After its inception meeting in Vienna in 2018, followed by meetings in Florence (2019) and Ascona (2021), ACES 2022 will take place in the city center of Utrecht at University Hall – “the heart and public face of Utrecht University”.

We are proud to present Milena Tsvetkova of the London School of Economics and Political Science and Brent Simpson of the University of South Carolina as keynote speakers for ACES 2022. Both are renowned experimental sociologists, known for their innovative experimental research on a variety of topics.

We welcome submissions of extended abstracts (max. 500 words) on survey-, laboratory-, field- and online experiments conducted to address sociologically relevant questions. In particular, we welcome submissions on replications and secondary analyses of previous experimental results, early-career scholars’ research designs in the pre-field phase of their projects, and methodological advances in experimental sociology. We offer about 40 30-minute slots for oral presentations and up to 20 spaces for poster presentations.
