AASP 2023 Conference, July 13-15, 2023, Hong Kong

At the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 15th Biennial Conference of the Asian Association of Social Psychology, “Asian Social Psychology in the Face of Global Challenges: Achievements and Opportunities” was hosted in hybrid mode by the Department of Psychology at the Education University of Hong Kong from July 13-15, 2023. Far exceeding attendance expectations, a total of 685 registered participants attended (~30% online) from a total of 33 countries/regions. The conference was preceded by the highly appreciated AASP Summer School that attracted 44 students from 14 countries/regions, all held on the bucolic-yet-modern campus of the Education University of Hong Kong.

The conference showcased an enormous diversity of presentations, with the high quality commented on by many attendees. In addition to a support team of staff and professors from EdUHK, an amazing 27 student volunteers made the hybrid mode possible, with sessions simultaneously held in-person and live-streamed on Whova/Zoom in 8 hybrid-ready lecture halls. A total of 544 speakers took part, including three lunchtime sessions of 162 poster presentations (one session held on Gathertown), 293 individual oral presentations organized into 69 paper sessions, and 34 symposia including Meet the Editors, Featured Organizations, and Conference Theme. Over the three days of conference, we also enjoyed three Keynotes by five Keynote Speakers; two Award Addresses; and the Presidential Address, as well as significant Opening and Closing Ceremonies, where a MOU with the Vietnam Association of Psychology was signed. A Gala Dinner, accompanied by a live performance of traditional Chinese music, and an opening Lion Dance– both performances supported by the Hong Kong Tourism Board– were also enjoyed.

Attendees commented on the warm, collegial, and inclusive culture of the conference, which we believe is the distinctive feature of AASP conferences. We look forward to the 2025 conference in Malaysia!
