Past Conferences

Our History and Today

The Interdisciplinary Conference in Psychology (ICP | CIP) Conférence interdisciplinaire en psychologie has been organized by students in psychology at the University of Ottawa for the past 8years. While it initially started out under the name, Psychology Outside the Box (POTB),  our conference adopted a new name and logo at our 5th anniversary to better reflect our missions: interdisciplinary research, knowledge translation and accessibility, and application of science.


The Interdisciplinary Conference in Psychology (ICP|CIP) recently celebrated its 7th annual meeting in May 2018. From its initial inception, seven years ago as Psychology Outside the Box (POTB), ICP has continuously grown. Our successful achievements from this past year include an expanded high school stream of 60+ students, more engagement in community outreach activities, such as providing educational workshops on psychological research in local high schools, obtaining a record number of abstract submissions, and international participation, most notably, from Pakistan and the United Kingdom. This is thanks to the numerous committee members involved over the years. We would like to thank them for their energy, creativity, and dedication to the conference. We would also like to thank the numerous organizations, collaborators, and sponsors that have supported the conference over the years. In particular, the ICP is sincerely grateful to the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa for its continuous and warm support. We hope to continue our commitment for ICP’s growth and to achieve newer heights in the following year. We hope to see you in May 2019!
