Inaugural ICPS Showcases Integrative Science

Nearly 2,200 researchers from more than 75 countries gathered at the historic Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam for the inaugural International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS). Conceived as a step toward eliminating disciplinary and geographical boundaries that can impede scientific collaboration and progress, this first-of-its-kind meeting featured world-renowned researchers from psychological science, economics, sociology, linguistics, neuroscience, and other related fields presenting their work in a unique format of integrative science symposia and workshops. The event is captured in a photo album on APS's Facebook page, and in videos on APS's YouTube page.
