very keen to support conferences which are compatible with the objectives
of the Association and in which our members will have an interest
and may indeed be attending and speaking. For example, a way to
support related conferences is to offer to organise a paper session.

The Networks too organise symposia and conferences.
IAPS is very keen to have links with sister organisations,
and we are constantly looking for ways in which these relationships
can benefit the membership. For example, it has been agreed that
members of EDRA, MERA and PAPER will get reduced rate registration
fees for IAPS Conferences. This is in turn reciprocated so that
if an IAPS member attends an EDRA Conference they pay the same fee
as an EDRA member. Membership of IAPS also enables reduced subscription
rates to various journals.
