Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Executive Committee of Turkish Psychological Association (TPA) and members of the organizing committee it is our pleasure to introduce the XII th European Congress of Psychology, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from July 4-8, 2011.

The conference will be hosted by TPA, under the auspices of EFPA, with the idea of bringing researchers together to exchange scientific knowledge and recent studies from various areas of psychology. The conference committee is currently developing a programme that will be an excellent collection of scientific sessions. There will be paper and poster presentations, keynote speeches and panel discussions. It will be an outstanding forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest findings.

As the host of the conference, the beautiful city of Istanbul is the largest city of Turkey. Istanbul is both the cultural and the financial center of Turkey, along with being one of the largest cities of Europe. Located on both sides of the Bosphorus, Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe. Under the magical atmosphere of Istanbul the attendees will have the opportunity to share their views and also come together with colleagues from all across Europe.

Over the years, the European Congress of Psychology has been a major forum for psychologists, so we hope that you will join us, catch up on all theoretical and methodological advances in psychology and enjoy the beauty of the wonderful and inspiring Istanbul.

Future updates about the congress will be announced from the website, and participants will be informed about the acceptance of papers and posters in the following months.

We very much hope you will join us for this exciting psychology congress set in Istanbul.
