VIAPPL Projects

The VIAPPL platform allows for the experimental manipulation of virtual social contexts, in order to examine intergroup and interpersonal behaviours, as well as norms that emerge. The VIAPPL has recently been used in South Africa, the Netherlands, and Northern Ireland to conduct social psychological experiments of this nature, focusing on a variety of topics.

On this page you will find links to the various past and present projects using the VIAPPL as an experimental software.
