Submission portal now open
Deadline Oct. 20.

The American Psychological Association will hold an interdisciplinary
conference on *Technology, Mind, and Society <>* in
Washington, DC, on April 5-7, 2018. Scientists, practitioners,
policymakers, and students from around the world are invited to participate
in the event.

The conference will provide a venue for reporting and assessing current
efforts to understand and shape the interactions of human beings and
technology, for identifying priorities for future work, and for promoting
exchange and collaboration among participants.

The conference will be organized around the following broad themes:

   - Basic Research: How humans understand and use technology, impacts of
   technology on human experience and behavior, human-technology interactions
   as mutually adaptive systems, role of technology in advancing other areas
   of scientific research, and related topics.
   - Foundations of Technology Design: Development of technologies informed
   by psychological, behavioral, and social science research.
   - Applications: Development, use, and impact of specific technologies in
   domains such as aging, education, mental and physical health, recreation,
   and the workplace.
   - Broader Implications: Ethical and policy questions concerning the
   opportunities and challenges arising from human-technology interactions.

Conference presentations may address the role of humans at the individual,
group, and/or societal levels. They may consider universal features of
human-technology interactions as well as features that vary across age,
culture, economic conditions, and other dimensions of human diversity.

Moreover, the conference aims to address the full range of contemporary and
emerging technologies. These include but are not limited to artificial
intelligence, robotics, mobile devices, social media, virtual/augmented
reality, gaming, geographic information systems, autonomous vehicles, and
biomedical technologies (e.g., brain-machine interfaces, genetic

The conference is open to researchers, professionals, and students in all
relevant areas, including psychology and other behavioral and social
sciences, neuroscience, computer science, engineering, design, health
research, education research, city and regional planning, public policy,
history of science and technology, and philosophy.

In addition to keynote talks by leading researchers, the conference will
feature peer-reviewed paper and poster presentations. Ample opportunities
will be provided for discussion and networking.
