Three features make ICPS unique:

Integrative Science Symposia: Solutions to our most pressing scientific questions come from cross-cutting efforts in which investigators deploy diverse research methods and attack problems at multiple levels of analysis.  ICPS will showcase these efforts in thematic Integrative Science Symposia featuring leading investigators from not only psychological science, but also neuroscience, genetics, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, and related fields.

Skill-Building Workshops: At a scientific convention, you not only can learn about others’ novel research findings, but you also can learn how to execute the cutting-edge research methods that produced them.  At ICPS, Cutting-Edge Methodological Workshops will provide scientific skill-building opportunities for all conference attendees.

International Scope: ICPS is the first-of-its-kind international conference dedicated to scientific advances in all areas of psychology and related disciplines. Share ideas with colleagues from around the globe at this must-attend international gathering of the psychological science community.

In addition to the invited programs, scholars will have presentation opportunities across psychological science and related disciplines.
