The 1st International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS2015) was held March 12-14, 2015 and hosted by the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
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.
These efforts respond to developments in a rapidly changing field. Increasingly, challenges in psychological science can only be met by boundary-spanning investigations that address a phenomenon with diverse methods and at multiple levels of analysis. Such efforts require collaboration across academic disciplines and geographic boundaries. Seizing these opportunities requires a global effort and the involvement of the full range of disciplines, from those that study societies and cultures to those that investigate genetics and neural mechanisms.
Congress by design supported the convention with a broad range of services, including meeting logistics, supplier management such as venues, caterer, photographer, hotels, signage, exhibition set-up and meeting materials.
