Visit Ljubljana

CD Congress Centre Ljubljana won the organization of the 17th biennial European Congress of Psychology (ECP) 2021 when the Slovenian capital will enjoy the privilege of being a world psychology capital. The leading Slovenian congress organizer again proved its primate position and persuaded the organizers, the Slovenian Psychological Association, with the enthusiasm by the congress team of CD, their professional, efficient and adaptable services.

In 2021, Ljubljana will act as the proud host of the 17th edition of the biennial European Congress of Psychology (ECP). In presenting its strong and convincing candidacy, the Slovenian Psychological Association together with partner Cankarjev dom outshined its fellow competitors, Lisbon (Portugal) and Nicosia (Cyprus), at this year’s 15th EFPA General Assembly in Amsterdam. ECP is the largest congress of psychology in Europe and one of the most important events of its kind in the world. With approximately 3,000 delegates who are expected to visit Ljubljana in summer 2021 from all over the world, Ljubljana will enjoy the privilege of a world psychology capital.

Brief presentation for the general public:
is a congress centred on general psychology, with scientists and researchers presenting their latest findings. It covers various aspects of psychology, from developmental psychology, through methodology, social psychology and neuropsychology to psychotherapy. In view of the numerous parallel programmes, a delegate can follow (should he wish to do so) the sessions dedicated exclusively to his field of specialisation.

Usually, the congress includes at least 10 plenary sessions and over 1,000 oral presentations with twice as many posters. However, the Organising Committee of the Slovenian Psychological Association is planning to introduce some new features in 2021, including a Student Day and Bilateral Meetings.
