The Association holds two kinds of conferences:
International Congresses (every two years) serve as major meeting places for the exchange of ideas among researchers and students from all over the world. The first Congress was held in Hong Kong (1972), the most recent were in Bremen, Germany (2008) and Melbourne, Australia (2010). The next International Congress will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 2012.
Regional conferences serve to bring people together within regions, or from outside who share an interest in a region. The first regional conference was held in Ibadan, Nigeria (1973) and more recently in Istanbul, Turkey (2011). The next regional conference will be in Los Angeles, California (2013) on the UCLA campus.
Sponsored conferences are those in which IACCP plays an official role but does not directly organize.
In addition to these two kinds of conferences, IACCP participates formally in the conferences of other organizations, such as the European Congress of Psychology.
