The International Congress of Psychology, held every four
years under the auspices of the International Union of Psychological Science,
is the flagship event in international psychology. The 30th International
Congress of Psychology is the first to be held in Africa, and is organised by
the National Research Foundation of South Africa and the Psychological Society
of South Africa, in partnership with key South African universities and the
psychological associations of neighbouring countries.
Organised around the theme Psychology Serving Humanity, the congress
will highlight how psychology translates its science and practice into the
knowledge, skills and tools that are able to underpin the human condition.

publishing houses, technological innovators and international psychology
organisations. Special activities will include a Translational Policy Research
Lecture Series, an exciting Emerging Psychologists' Programme, Advanced
Research Training Seminars for psychologists from the developing world, various
cutting-edge workshops and a variety of tours (including famous World Heritage
sites like Robben Island and Table Mountain) and breathtaking wildlife safaris
for delegates and accompanying persons.
