It is widely accepted that integrative science—that spans disciplinary boundaries, geographic borders, and levels of analysis—is urgently needed in order to tackle some of the most important problems facing society today. At the same time, the path toward integrative science faces many challenges. Disciplines can differ in what is considered an appropriate research question, the methods they use for collecting data, even what constitutes data in the first place. Given these differences, how do journals dedicated to publishing integrative science of human behaviour evaluate and judge research? What are the barriers and best practices for publishing integrative science papers? What are the tips for early career researchers who are embracing an integrative approach? A unique panel of editors of leading psychological science journals will answer these questions and share their perspectives on integrative research.
Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Science of Wine Tasting: A Discussion Panel
Friday, 8 March 2019 | 17:30 – 18:50 (5:30 PM – 6:50 PM) in Amphitheatre Havane
Barry Smith (Chair), School of Advanced Study, University of London, United Kingdom

Drinking wine has been part of human culture since antiquity, and many of its psychological effects are well known. Though the practice of wine tasting is ancient, modern science – and notably cognitive science – provided a deeper insight on psychological processes involved in wine tasting. In addition, wine professionals use scientific insights to produce, present, and advertise wine and an ever-more-complex and specialized terminology to describe wine tasting. The objective of this panel is to bring experts together from science, humanities, and the professional wine world to discuss the current state of the art in wine tasting.
Thursday, 7 March 2019 | 17:00 – 17:50 (5:00 PM – 5:50 PM) Room 342B

Organized under the auspices of the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System.
Clinical psychologists increasingly advocate that clinical training and practice should be based on scientific knowledge. This clinical science model showcases the primacy of scientific knowledge and training models in which science is fully integrated into all aspects of clinical training. The symposium examines exciting developments in clinical science and clinical science training from differing international perspectives.
