The second biennial
International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS)


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, economics, anthropology, linguistics, and related fields. Each Integrative Science Symposium will be paired with Cutting-Edge Methodological Workshops that will provide scientific skill-building opportunities for all conference attendees.


A central part of the mission of the ICPS is to promote skill-building in integrative psychological science. The program includes workshops by some of the field’s leading experts on various cutting-edge methodologies. There is no additional charge for these workshops; they are included with ICPS registration.

Special Events

The ICPS program also includes several special events such as an Inside the Psychologist’s Studio interview with Walter Mischel, The Editors’ Corner discussing the challenges and opportunities in publishing integrative science, a Debate on Language and Big Data, and Women in Cognitive Science programs.

Pre-Conference Teaching Institute

ICPS will feature a pre-conference Teaching Institute with talks from leading experts in the research and application of empirical approaches to teaching psychological science.
