The 2010 Best Social Cognition Paper Award

The International Social Cognition Network (ISCON) announces the 2010 “Best Social Cognition Paper Award”. Each year, this award recognizes an outstanding article in the field of Social Cognition. Theoretical as well as empirical articles are eligible. The most prominent criteria will be the importance of the contribution and the envisioned influence it will have in the years to come.

ISCON wants to emphasize that it will define Social Cognition broadly. In addition, the ISCON Best Paper Award is not instituted with a certain age group in mind. Senior and junior faculty, as well as graduate students, are all encouraged to nominate their work.

This year’s award covers the 2010 calendar year. Thus, all peer- reviewed journal articles published in the 2010 edition(s) of scientific journals are eligible. Applicants are asked to nominate themselves and to submit an article on which they are (co-) author, as well as a statement (maximum 500 words) in which the strengths of the article are highlighted. Nominees should make sure that other authors of the nominated article do not object to the nomination.

Articles and accompanying statements should be sent electronically to Melissa Ferguson ( The 2010 Award committee consists of Bernd Wittenbrink (University of Chicago), Leonel Garcia-Marques (University of Lisbon), and Melissa Ferguson (Cornell University). The deadline is August 1, 2011. Nominations arriving after the deadline cannot be considered. The award will be presented at the ISCON pre-conference at the next SPSP Meeting in 2012.
