Registration

Find information about registration for APS 2020 in Chicago, IL May 21-24, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the APS Board of Directors has determined that APS is no longer able to host the 32nd APS Annual Convention in Chicago, IL, USA, May 21-24, 2020 safely or in a way that meets the intended purpose of the event. More information about alternative options for presenting the science will be shared in the coming weeks. All registered attendees will be refunded in full – no action is necessary. 

We are working on how to do this most efficiently and will be in touch with registered attendees soon to provide more information. Please wait for APS Staff to contact you regarding your registration refund. We ask for your patience and cooperation as our small staff works to process a large volume of refunds.

We respectfully request that you not contact your credit card company to request a chargeback or to refute the charge, as this could impact APS’s ability to rapidly refund all registrants. APS will process refunds in as timely a manner as possible, but please be aware that it may take several weeks for your refund to be completed.

APS membership is processed separately from APS 2020 registration, and will not be automatically refunded. Our Membership Team is happy to work with you in the event you wish to request a refund, and they can be reached at member@psychologicalscience.org.

Code of Conduct
APS has always been committed to the importance of science being conducted, discussed, presented and published in ways that promote the lively and productive exchange of ideas. This means avoiding  actions or speech that could reasonably be construed as harassing or personally disparaging, including behavior during APS Conventions. Because of the increased public awareness of these issues, we felt it important to reaffirm our commitment to these ideals by making explicit the expectations for conduct at APS Conventions, as follows:  “APS encourages and expects all convention participants to conduct themselves professionally and, out of respect for others and for the spirit of our gathering, to refrain from actions or speech that could reasonably be construed as harassing or personally disparaging.”
