New Submission Deadline: January 15, 2016
Considering the great number of requests from participants, the Scientific Program Committee has decided to receive abstract submissions for Oral/Poster presenters, Symposium speakers, and Thematic Session speakers until January 15, 2016 (24:00, Japan Standard Time).
*Please note that feedback on the review results of abstracts submitted after December 1, 2015, will not be sent until mid-March, 2016.
Requests from the program committee
We expect a very high number of submissions between November and December 1, 2015, especially during the last hours before the submission deadline. During that time, the large amount of traffic on the congress web server may potentially result in difficulties or delays in accessing the submission webpage. We strongly encourage you to leave plenty of time for your submission.
We have launched a new presentation category, “Thematic Sessions”, where researchers talk and intensively discuss a single important theme in psychology and related fields. Different from Contributed Symposium, a thematic session can be composed of speakers all from the same country. The deadline of abstract (proposal) submission for thematic session organizers is October 1st, 2015, 24:00 Japan Standard Time. Please see Call for Abstracts for details about the submission procedure.
The system modification has been completed.
As indicated in the right-side column of this page, tThe general flow of the process for Registration & Abstract Submission has changed. Now you can submit your abstract before or after registration and payment. If you would prefer to pay after receiving notification of abstract acceptance, you are required to pay the registration fee by April 1, 2016 in order for your presentation to be included in the program. Please note that the registration fee will increase from December 2, 2015. If you have completed payment but wish to cancel your attendance due to non-acceptance of your abstract, you will be fully refunded if you directly inform the ICP2016 office of your intention to withdraw by email ( within a month of receiving notification of non-acceptance.
Modification of the Registration & Submission System
In order to improve convenience, the ICP2016 Organizing Committee has decided to modify the Registration & Submission System in the second half of August, 2015. After that, you can pay the registration fee either at the time of abstract submission or after the notification of abstract acceptance. If you prefer to pay the registration fee at the time of the abstract submission, please register now using the present system. If you prefer paying after the notification of abstract acceptance, please wait until the next announcement, then access the Registration & Submission System. We appreciate your kind understanding.
