The European Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences 2014


Thistle Brighton, Brighton, East Sussex, United Kingdom

Thursday, July 24, 2014 - Sunday, July 27, 2014 (All Day)

Abstract Submission Deadline: extended to June 1, 2014

Registration Deadline for Presenters: July 1, 2014

The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global university partners is proud to announce the Inaugural European Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences, to be held from July 24-27, 2014, at the Thistle Hotel Brighton, in the United Kingdom.



Hear the latest research, publish before a global audience, present in a supportive environment, network, engage in new relationships, experience the UK, explore Brighton, London and the South-East of England, join a global academic community…

This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of psychologists, medical doctors and social scientists to discuss outside the traditional confines of narrow fields of specialism, and in new directions of research and discovery in psychology and the behavioral sciences. As with IAFOR’s other events, and by bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ECP 2014 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

2014 Conference Theme:
“Individual, Community & Society: Conflict, Resolution & Synergy”

Conflict is an integral part of the human condition. The universal struggle between our personal selves – who we are as unique, separate and different from others, with our specific blend of experiences, abilities, attitudes, aspirations, needs and wants – and our social selves, intricately connected to, and interdependent on, others – our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our communities and cultures – leads inevitably to internal as well as interpersonal conflict.

Conflict among our communities and societies is also natural, given that these groups are founded on commonality – of geography, values, attitudes, beliefs, aspirations – and differentiated from others based on these. Diversity, however, though it may lead to conflict, plays an important role in the flourishing of communities and societies. One of the challenges of modern society is harnessing the synergy that emerges from the interaction of these differences.

We hope and expect that the conference theme will excite interesting new interpretations and explorations, and hope you can join us in Brighton in 2014!
