After the success of the first EWEP organized twenty years ago, researchers in the domain of perception and action have continued to meet in Europe on a bi-annual basis, alternating with the International Conference on Perception and Action (ICPA) organized under the auspices of the International Society of Ecological Psychology (ISEP). The 12th European meeting will take place in Miraflores de la Sierra (Madrid) and will be organized by the Perception and Action Research Group of the Autonomous University of Madrid.

The 2012 EWEP will bring together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds that are inspired by the theoretical concepts and experimental programs of the ecological approach to perception and action and, more broadly, to psychology. The goal of the workshop is to discuss recent developments in the large domain of perception and action, including issues in system dynamics, motor control, theory of affordances, coordination, learning, development, driving and flying, tool use, sports skills, and more.

Organized around thematic symposia, considerable time will be allotted to plenary discussions and poster presentations. The aim of the workshop is to allow all delegates to participate actively.
