Psychologists at Astrakhan State University are hosting a conference devoted to psycho-emotional health, October 3-5, 2008. They invite your participation, either in person or by submitting a paper for publication in the conference proceedings.
I am convinced that meeting colleagues in other countries & cultures, and exchanging ideas with them about our common interests, is one of the most important ways that we can advance our understanding of psychology throughout the world. Encountering different perspectives encourages us to examine our own assumptions more critically.
Please, give serious thought to participating in this conference, even if "only" remotely, by sending a paper. Your work will be read eagerly by psychologists in Russia, and you will be rewarded with the chance to read some of their work as well. The cost is low, both in terms of the exchange rate and in terms of the time investment required to write an article for the conference. But the payoff can be great, as you expand your contact with psychologists in Russia and elsewhere.
Here are the details I have at this time:
