Save the date: ICSD 2022 in Copenhagen

Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2021 conference for obvious reasons. The good news is that we have now scheduled a new date to have ICSD in Copenhagen in 2022 instead.

Please block your calendars for July 19-22, 2022. We will let you know once we’ve updated the website and you can submit new abstracts. The conference website can be found at:

Looking forward to welcome you to ICSD in Copenhagen next year!

International Conference on Social Dilemmas postponed to 2022

We would have loved to welcome you in Copenhagen this summer, but unfortunately, there will be no ICSD in 2021. In conjunction with the ICSD steering committee we have decided to reschedule the conference for 2022.

We initially hoped that it would be possible to hold an in-person or hybrid conference this summer. At the moment, however, it seems very unlikely that we could have a conference without severe limitations. Vaccination in many European countries runs slowly, and it is not clear whether all participants would be able to get vaccinated before the conference. Relatedly, it is unlikely that all restrictions on travel and events will be lifted until July. Even if people can get vaccinated and restrictions will be lifted, all of this would likely be decided only very shortly before the conference, leaving many participants in uncertainty until early summer.

Cancelling this year’s conference was a difficult decision for us. For those of you who submitted an abstract or already made plans to attend, we apologise for the inconvenience this causes you.

The exact date for next year’s conference will be determined after the summer. We will be in touch when the date has been set.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Copenhagen in 2022.

The Amsterdam-Copenhagen Cooperation Colloquia (AC3)

The Amsterdam-Copenhagen Cooperation Colloquia (AC3) are a series of online talks on interdisciplinary cooperation research. The series is sponsored by the Amsterdam Cooperation Lab at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (PI Daniel Balliet) and the Personality and Social Psychology Group at the University of Copenhagen (PIs Robert Böhm and Ingo Zettler).

With the AC3, we aim to provide a forum for recent research on cooperation in humans and other animals. The series is interdisciplinary and international by design. The AC3 will feature speakers working in a wide range of disciplines (anthropology, biology, economics, psychology, etc.) and with a variety of methods (lab and field experiments, ethnography, experience sampling, computational modelling). We are especially committed to a diversity of speakers, including those who may otherwise face barriers to speaking at departmental colloquia.

The AC3 are organised by Shuxian Jin at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Simon Columbus at the University of Copenhagen. Please feel free to contact us in case you have any queries.
