Abstract : The Office of Naval Research, Group Psychology Branch, sponsored the conference as a modest contribution to the development of experimental social psychology in Western Europe. The conference was expected to contribute toward this broad objective by: (a) Presenting an opportunity for social psychologists to share their experiences and views on the use of experimental methods in the study of important social psychological problems. Familiarity with the potentials and limitations of experimental approaches could stimulate their more widespread adoption. (b) Providing for the exchange of information on current research, facilities, and personnel in different European centers. Cross national collaboration, exchange programs, etc., require prior acquaintance with programs and facilities. (c) Permitting informal discussion of common problems and some measure of personal contact, both of which would facilitate the establishment of informal working groups and possibly, eventually, an 'international' committee to promote scientific advances in social psychology.
