Annotating images: two methods developed on children’s drawings of gods
21 August, 13:00 - 14:30

This workshop will present two annotation methods used in the project “Drawings of gods” (http://ddd.unil.ch/) to analyse children’s drawings from various countries.
The first method makes use of an online tool for image annotation, which offers the possibility to identify objects/features as well as their surface position or occupancy with points or boxes, respectively: Gauntlet (http://d2d.vital-it.ch/#/).
The second method is a manual annotation employed to score sex markers of specified figures in drawings using external judges accounting for both dimensions and categories.
The workshop will begin with a quick overview of a sample of drawings taken from the present project. Then participants will be given the opportunity to test and challenge the above-mentioned methods on their own computer. Note that attendees should come along with their own laptop, and free Wi-Fi access will be provided by the Conference organisation.
After this collective exercise findings from our research group using those methods will be presented and interpreted. More specifically we will display ways of work out the occupancy and spatial distribution (over the image surface) of different types of drawn figures. In addition we will show how to compute the mass centre of figures as well as provide an anthropomorphism rate of figures based on their type (god or non-god figures).
At the end time will be given for discussion.
Duration: 2 hours
Number of participants: max 20. For registration, please send your email to:

From Research to Practice: Advances toward an Applied Psychology of Religion and Spirituality
21 August, 14:30 - 16:00
Dr. Kenneth I. Pargament
Bowling Green State University, Ohio, USA
This talk would be directed to both researchers and practitioners in the field. More specifically, it would (a) describe the movement from research to practice as a “third wave” in our field; (b) discuss the factors that have made the integration of research and practice particularly challenging; (c) present a rationale for the integration of research and practice, and (d) review advances that have been made that highlight the promise and potential of an applied psychology of religion and spirituality.
There will be time for questions and discussions. No pre-registration.
