Welcome Message

Warm Welcome from the Organizing and Scientific Committees of AASP 2023

Building on extensive experience with different modes of interactivity over the past few years, we are excited to be holding AASP 2023 in "live hybrid" mode. Symposia and paper sessions will be both in-person and shown in parallel on Zoom, with in-person and online audience interactions facilitated by our up-to-date hybrid teaching facilities at EdUHK and our experienced staff and students. Poster sessions will also have both online and in-person options with special events for greater interactivity. We know that our main committed audience will be on the ground in Hong Kong, but are glad to offer the online option to give greater flexibility and accessibility, and promise a fruitful experience for both modes. Attendees can decide at the time of registration (mid-April) if they will take advantage of the convenience of an online mode, or to come to Hong Kong and enjoy the travel and social-intellectual interactions that are the key pleasures of an in-person event!

With hybrid mode guaranteed, we believe this will help everyone attend with full confidence of an enjoyable event open to all. Please see the Call for Submissions page to start preparing your abstracts for this exciting conference.

Our theme this year is "Asian Social Psychology in the Face of Global Challenges: Achievements and Opportunities." The past few years have seen unprecedented events pose new challenges around the world, from the Covid-19 pandemic to drastic changes in national leadership to global crises. In the face of these global challenges, the field of social psychology has sought to understand how individuals and groups navigate and cope with these changes and what they mean for society at large. In this conference, we discuss the achievements made in this area and examine the opportunities these changes present for psychological research. We hope that you will join us and contribute to this important discussion.

The Department of Psychology at the Education University of Hong Kong is looking forward to hosting you both online and on our beautiful Hong Kong campus this summer! Looking forward to seeing you in July 2023, whether online or in-person.

Best wishes from the Organizing and Scientific Committees, AASP 2023
