Professor Kashima to serve as 2019 ICPS Program Committee chair
Congratulations are due to Professor Yoshi Kashima for being asked to serve as Program Chair for the 2019 International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS) that will be held in Vienna. The School supports Yoshi in this opportunity and wish him the very best as he serves in this significant role.
ICPS is the culmination of efforts by the American based Association for Psychological Science (APS) and an international network of organisations and individual scientists to stimulate scientific advances by drawing on broad research from multiple branches of psychological science, the cognitive sciences, the neurosciences, and other related disciplines.
This conference was organised in response to developments in our rapidly changing field. Increasingly, challenges in psychological science can only be met by boundary-spanning investigations that address a phenomenon with diverse methods involving 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.
