10th European Meeting on Human Fear Conditioning (EMHFC)

n behalf of the organising committee, I am delighted to announce that the Call For Papers for the 10th European Meeting on Human Fear Conditioning (EMHFC) will soon open.

The meeting is organised by Swansea University and King’s College London, and will be held from April 16th to 18th 2018 at Hensol Castle ( and The Vale Resort (, near Cardiff, South Wales. The meeting will commence at 12.00 on the16th and finish at 15.00 on the 18th (times are approximate).

Keynote speakers for the 10th EMHFC are Joseph LeDoux (New York University) and Joseph Dunsmoor (University of Texas at Austin).

The goal of the meeting is to foster and develop a European network of researchers and to promote intense, productive collaborations. As usual, the only constraint for contributions is that they are European-based and involve the human fear conditioning procedure.

Registration and Abstract Submission will open soon. The closing deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 26th 2018. The closing date for registration is March 1st 2018 (conference fees, which will be circulated soon, must be paid in full by this date).
