International Convention of Psychological Science

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Thursday, March 12, 2015 - Saturday, March 14, 2015
ICPS is the culmination of efforts by APS and an international network of organizations and individual scientists to stimulate scientific advances that are integrative; that is, in which investigators attack scientific problems by drawing broadly on research conducted at multiple levels of analysis and in multiple branches of psychological science, the cognitive sciences, the neurosciences, and other related disciplines. The initiative has been designed, in essence, to surmount artificial disciplinary boundaries that can impede scientific progress and to highlight areas of investigation in which those boundaries have already been overcome.
