Welcome message from Saths Cooper – IUPsyS Past President

You are cordially invited to diarize the forthcoming International Congress of Psychology (ICP2020) and to kindly submit your ideas for presentation at ICP2020 from 19-24 July 2020 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Every four years – approximating the period of the Olympic Games – International Congresses of Psychology have been eagerly anticipated, starting with the 1st ICP held in Paris, France in 1889 to celebrate the centennial of the French Revolution, and culminating with the 31st ICP, where some 8,000 psychologists, academics, and students of psychology and cognate disciplines from across the globe descended on Yokohama, Japan in July 2016. They took away fond memories of engaging psychology luminaries and up-and-coming stars, meeting old and new colleagues and friends, and were inspired to make plans to renew their science and practice at ICP2020.

Our gracious Czech hosts are working tirelessly to create a memorable scientific and social experience – where you will be spoilt for choice – in a unique cultural environment, that boasts the largest castle complex in the world, many World Heritage Sites, affordable accommodation and great hospitality. My colleagues in the leadership of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS), our 87 country members and our 24 international and regional affiliates look forward to welcoming you to Prague in July 2020, where, together, we may continue to explore psychology in our fast-changing world, opening ourselves to fresh challenges and opportunities so that our discipline can continue to serve all of humanity.

IUPsyS Past President
