Pre-Congress Workshops and Master Lectures

Our Pre-Congress program offers the opportunity to participate in advanced lectures or workshops with leading scholars and practitioners on Thursday, July 13th, before the full Congress begins that evening. Attendance for these sessions is not included in the World Congress Registration listed above, but in previous years, hundreds of IPPA World Congress attendees have chosen to add one or more of these sessions to their learning experience.

If you have already registered for the Fifth World Congress and would like to add a Pre-Congress session, please email or call (888) 389-9687.

Learn more about our distinguished presenters and their presentation topics by visiting: Pre-Congress Sessions (link).

Additional Registration Options

One-Day Registration: While the vast majority of attendees choose to join us for the full World Congress program, we understand that circumstances might sometimes make that difficult. For those situations, One-Day Registration includes access to all Congress program sessions on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, along with the poster sessions, exhibit hall, and boxed lunch.

Guest Registration: If you are traveling with family or guests, a guest registration is available that includes admission to the two evening social events (excludes Exhibit and Poster Hall admittance).

Donate to IPPA Student Scholarship Fund

IPPA is committed to nurturing the next generation of positive psychology scholars and practitioners. We anticipate many promising and motivated students will be accepted to present at the Fifth World Congress on Positive Psychology.  Many of these students are struggling to afford the cost of attendance, even though we offer significantly subsidized registration to enable student participation. By making a tax-deductible donation to the Student Fund, you will make it possible for more students to take advantage of this unique career and learning opportunity.

IPPA will offer a limited number of scholarships to help offset the cost of registration and travel for accepted presenters, in addition to offering subsidized registration feed to qualified students. The more donations we receive the more students we can help.

Please consider making a difference in the lives and future careers of these talented young scholars. You will find an option to donate during the registration process, or you can simply click below to make a donation. Thank you for your generosity and support!
