Each year, students at the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa organize the Interdisciplinary Conference in Psychology (ICP). ICP 2020 will be the 9th year!

Join us in the organization of this stimulating and unique event! Do you want to contribute to promoting and showcasing innovative research in psychology? Would you like to learn how an academic conference works, get involved, meet new people from the University of Ottawa and other universities? This is the organization for you!

You can become an associate member and/or a volunteer in any of our subcommittees at any point during the year: Finance, High School Liaison, Logistics, Peer-Review, and Publicity. An associate member works closely with a director to organize and plan the
conference throughout the year. A volunteer mainly helps with day-of conference activities. Check out the Committees Description page to learn more about what each committee is responsible for in the organization of ICP.
