APS ANNUAL CONFERENCE APS Home Early bird open! Register now


Chair welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to the official website for the 50th Annual Conference of the Australian Psychological Society – the Golden Jubilee Conference. The Conference will be held on the Gold Coast sometimes referred to as Australia’s number one tourist destination, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, located a few hundred metres from spectacular beaches.

As the conference will be the Golden Jubilee Conference, every effort will be made to make this a very special event. The theme of the Conference is Celebrating the past, looking toward the future. Hence it will review the achievements of the last 50 years as a platform for considering what psychology wants to accomplish in the next decade and beyond.

The program will include highly distinguished psychologists from Australia and overseas delivering Keynote and Invited Addresses. The workshop program will be orientated towards assisting registrants to achieve their generalist and specialist CPD requirements. The highlight of the social program will be the Conference Dinner which will be held on the 78th floor of the Q1 building, which has panoramic views of the beaches and hinterland.

Come and join us for this landmark event!
