Join us for a Meeting of the Minds in May 2021!

The 2021 APS Virtual Convention is an interactive online two-day event that combines program components from both the APS Annual Convention and the International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS).

By registering, attendees will be able to:

  • Hear from prominent and leading psychological scientists.
  • Learn about the latest psychological research through a combination of programming, Flash Talks (new!), and posters submitted by presenters from around the world displayed in the Virtual Poster Showcase (VPS).
  • Network with fellow attendees, colleagues, speakers and presenters to build connections, exchange ideas and gain insight on a variety of topics through discussions, events, and opportunities meeting with experts in the field.
  • Engage with exhibitors and sponsors to learn more about the latest research tools and trends, publications, services and more by visiting the Virtual Exhibit Hall.

Note: Though the 2021 APS Virtual Convention is an online two-day event, the Virtual Poster Showcase will launch on May 26, 2021 and will remain available through September 1, 2021. On-demand content programming featured during the 2021 APS Virtual Convention will be accessible for 30 days post-event for viewing through June 26, 2021.
