Journalists invited to premier global event in integrative psychological science

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) welcomes qualified journalists to attend the International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS), connecting a global network of scientists and organizations to promote global interdisciplinary research. The convention will be held 9–11 March in Brussels, Belgium. More than 1,400 attendees from at least 60 countries are expected to attend.  

Complimentary registration will be granted to working members of the press for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce media coverage of ICPS. See below for registration and credentialing information.  

ICPS 2023 is APS’s fourth biannual gathering of researchers attacking 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 related disciplines, including biology, economics, anthropology, and more. ICPS is designed to surmount artificial disciplinary boundaries that can impede scientific progress and to highlight areas of investigation in which those boundaries have already been overcome.
