Dear Members of the IACCP, Delegates and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing and the Scientific Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 24th Congress of the IACCP in the City of Guelph in Canada in 2018. Guelph is pronounced like Gwelf and rhymes with self.
Hosting the IACCP Congress is a great honour and we believe Canada is a perfect place to host the next congress. Canada was the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971. Following, this tradition, the conference theme is Multiculturalism in a Global Perspective: Benefits and Challenges. We are pleased to showcase what Canada and Canadian scholarship on culture and psychology have to offer. More importantly, we offer a platform for scholars working in different parts of the world to come together, exchange ideas, and collaborate.
The conference venue is the University of Guelph, which has an attractive North-American campus. Guelph is a medium sized research intensive university with excellent facilities to host an international conference. The University has one of the largest university housing systems in Canada. The City if Guelph also has many hotels and guest-houses.
The City of Guelph is about 90 kilometres from Toronto and there are buses and trains connecting the two cities. Guelph is a vibrant city of 120,000 people, known for its 19th Century limestone architecture, high quality life, beer micro-breweries, and art and music festivals.
We look forward to welcoming you to Guelph.
