  • The 2014 Asian Con­gress of Applied Psy­chol­ogy (ACAP) will be held in the cos­mopoli­tan city of Sin­ga­pore at the Con­corde Hotel, mark­ing a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in Asia where we bring together lead­ing schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers from Asia and the rest of the world for an aca­d­e­mic exchange as well as to facil­i­tate inter­na­tional research col­lab­o­ra­tions in the excit­ing realm of Applied Psychology.

    It will cre­ate new oppor­tu­ni­ties to build new rela­tion­ships while also keep­ing up with the lat­est advance­ments in Applied Psy­chol­ogy research and prac­tice in the Asia Pacific. We invite psy­chol­o­gists, health care pro­fes­sion­als, aca­d­e­mics and researchers from all fields of appli­ca­tions and back­grounds to sub­mit papers to the 2014 Asian Con­gress of Applied Psy­chol­ogy. This is an exclu­sive invi­ta­tion to join us for this excit­ing Con­gress in Sin­ga­pore from 7th & 8th May 2014.
