Dear Members,

On behalf of the Asian Association of Social Psychology (AASP) Executive Committee and the Korean Social and Personality Psychological Association (KSPPA), I would like to welcome you to the 14th AASP Biennial Conference in Seoul, Korea.

The Local Organizing Committee, KSPPA, is dedicated to creating a high-impact platform for academic exchange among the members of the AASP. The main theme of the conference, “Social Psychology of Intergroup Conflict: Towards Peace and Reconciliation in Asia”, symbolizes the much-needed dialogue and scientific research in the wake of highly volatile situations that surround us. I am certain that the Seoul conference will be a monumental event in the era of symbiosis and collective flourishing, which I believe will take center stage in our future endeavors to promote peace and harmony in the region.

The City of Seoul offers an exciting mix of traditional, modern, green, and urban spaces. While participating in the conference, you will enjoy the marvelous combination of the unique Korean culture and cutting-edge technology, with a warm welcome from all members of the KSPPA. You will also enjoy exchanging ideas amidst the culture of one of the most homogeneous and yet globalized cities in the world, providing a unique atmosphere for furthering academic insights into social dynamics.

I truly hope you will join us in this exciting journey and make great strides in our commitment to advancing social psychology.

Hoon-Seok Choi, Ph.D.
