The 11th European Congress of Psychology (ECP 2009) in Oslo

At the congress you will meet interesting colleagues, speakers, and participants from around the world, experience a scientific program representing a wide spectre of psychological fields, and enjoy the opportunity to join workshops and social events.

It is a pleasure to invite our international colleagues to the upcoming 11th European Congress of Psychology (ECP 2009) in Oslo, Norway on July 7 – 10, 2009. If you haven’t been to Norway and Oslo before, this is a great opportunity to do so now.

At the congress you will meet interesting colleagues, speakers, and participants from around the world, experience a scientific program representing a wide spectre of psychological fields, and enjoy the opportunity to join workshops and social events.

The congress will be hosted by The Norwegian Psychological Association under the auspices of EFPA (The European Federation of Psychologists Associations). There will be keynote lectures, symposia, and paper and poster presentations on a wide variety of themes. In addition to the general range of themes, we are organizing special subtopics on “Peace, Human Rights and Psychology”, “Contemporary Changes and Diversity in Everyday Lives”,  “Teaching psychology”, and “Test psychology”. Please note that there also will be a number of pre-congressional workshops on July 6th and 7th.

The ECP2009 will take place at a number of venues in downtown Oslo, namely the Oslo Congress Centre, Radisson SAS Plaza Hotel, Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania and Youngstorget Arena. It takes a maximum of five minutes to walk between these venues, and some events will also take place at the Norwegian Nobel Institute. The opening ceremony will be held at the brand-new Norwegian Opera House, right on the Oslo fjord, and close to the city centre.

The deadline for early registration (for the lowest fee) is March 15, 2009.
