IMPORTANT NOTICE

2016.07.27
On July 26th, a horrifying mass killing occurred at a facility for disabled people in the same prefecture as the Congress venue. The ICP2016 Executive Committee would like to express our most sincere condolences to the victims and their relatives. From the perspective of the congress theme of ICP2016, "Diversity in Harmony", we deeply regret the atrocious crime against the severely handicapped people. As psychologists, we will make every endeavor to prevent such saddening incidents that go against our congress theme.

If you prefer to pay the registration fee at the time of the abstract submission, please register now using the present system.
