The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) is kindly inviting you to participate in the 5th Asian Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences (ACP), held March 26 – 29, 2015 in Osaka, Japan at the Rihga Royal Hotel.
ACP will again be held alongside the Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy (ACERP). Registration for either conference will allow attendees to attend sessions in the other.
ACP2015 Conference Theme: “Power”
Power, used or abused, conceptually brings together several central philosophical questions of ethics and religion.
- What is power?
- What conditions make its exercise legitimate?
- How is illegitimate use to be defined?
- Is power itself, as some have claimed, neutral?
- Can its exercise ever be neutral?
- Can there be an unconscious use or abuse of power?
- If so, how does it function?
This selection of problems and themes call for perpetual reflection, and we are confident that this theme will excite a number of new research avenues, and we look forward to this being an intellectually stimulating, enlightening and “powerful” event.
The conference theme is “Power” and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences, including the following streams:
- General Psychology
- Psychology and Education
- Mental Health
- Linguistics, Language & Psychology/Behavioral Science
- Industrial Organization and Organization Theory
- Community Development
- Qualitative/Quantitative Research in any other area of Psychology
