The 50th Banff International Conference on Behavioural Science
Ideal Mental Health Services for Children and Youth: The Next 50 Years

    Location: Banff, Alberta, Canada

    The 2018 Banff International Conference on Behavioural Science will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Banff Conferences, making them one of the longest running annual conferences on behavioural science in the world. The first Conference was held in Banff during the spring of 1969 with the theme, Ideal Mental Health Services. While many advances in mental health services have been instituted in the decades following the first meeting, major challenges remain. The theme of the 2018 Conference is: “Ideal Mental Health Services for Children and Youth: The Next 50 Years.” The program of keynote speakers and workshops features prominent scientist-practitioners in the field of mental health services who will present cutting-edge social and behavioural research on mental health problems in children and youth along with individual, family and system-oriented solutions to these challenges. The program consists of major addresses as well as workshops designed to provide healthcare practitioners, researchers and policy makers with specific and implementable skills.

2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology
Psychology: Connecting Science to Solutions

    Location: Montréal
    Email: ICAP2018@cpa.ca
    Website: http://ICAP2018.com/
    Every four years, the IAAP organizes a world congress of applied psychology which serves as a review of advances in applied psychology and unites several thousand psychologists from all over the world.

    The 29th ICAP will be held in Montreal, Quebec in Canada from June 26-30, 2018, and is being hosted by the Canadian Psychological Association in collaboration with MCI Canada.

    Applied Psychology uses the methods and findings of scientific psychology to create solutions for the practical problems of individuals, groups and societies. We chose the theme for the 2018 ICAP -- Psychology: Connecting Science to Solutions -- to highlight this thriving partnership between science and practice and to extend a warm invitation to both scientists and practitioners.

    The ICAP was last held in Montréal in 1974, and we are delighted to welcome you back after all of these years to the Palais des congrès de Montréal, a modern and attractive venue right in the heart of the city. Montréal has been described as a “slice of old Europe in a pie of contemporary design”; it is a world class multicultural city and the proudly recognized centre of francophone culture in North America. Montréal was named a UNESCO City of Design in 2006, and the International Congress and Convention Association in 2009 named it North America's leading host city for international association events.
