The Sixth Asian Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences 2016 (ACP2016) is a multidisciplinary conference held concurrently with the Sixth Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy 2016 (ACERP2016) and both will commence in Kobe, Japan on March 31 — April 3, 2016 and are organised by the International Academic Forum (IAFOR). Keynote and featured speakers will provide a variety of perspectives from different academic and professional backgrounds on the conference theme of “Justice”.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in psychology and the behavioral sciences. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACP2016 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
The Asian Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences will again be held alongside the Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy. Registration for either conference will allow attendees to attend sessions in the other.
