Science & Social Justice Events


ACP2016 – The Sixth Asian Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences
Date: March 31 – April 3, 2016
Location: Kobe, Japan
This conference focuses on psychology and its intersections with justice. Justice, in all its forms, is an integral part of the human condition. It is natural to think of it as culture-dependent or culture-bound, but research suggests that there is also an innate aspect, as even young babies seem to have a sense of fairness and a dislike for people exhibiting unfair behaviour. This not only raises the nature – nurture debate, but also the possibility that our sense of justice may be a culturally construed transformation of a more basic urge to avenge, or revenge.

Mind Science Conference
Date: June 1-2, 2016
Location: Oakland, California
Our Mind Science Conference begins at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 1, and continues through June 2.

21st International AIDS Conference
Date: July 16-22 , 2016
Location: Durban, South Africa
The biennial International AIDS Conference truly is the premier meeting where science, leadership and community meet for advancing all facets of our collective efforts to treat and prevent HIV. AIDS 2016 represents a tremendous opportunity to show how much progress South Africa has made in implementing and funding evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions. Gathering in Durban, scientists, policymakers, world leaders, and people living with HIV will discuss together successes and challenges specific to that country and the current global epidemic trends. Together we will share best practices, learn from one another’s experience and develop new strategies and collaborations.
