Welcome from the President of ACIPE

Juan Fernández Sánchez
President of ACIPE

With regards to ACIPE (Scientific Association of Psychology and Education, www.acipe.es), it can be said that the data of the past congresses clearly support the fact that success leads to success. This type of international events of psychoeducational academics and professionals, grouped by their manifest interest in psychology and education, has until now been a clear raison d'être of ACIPE. In the light of its IX Congress, it currently remains to be one of the main activities of this Association.

Our motto for 2018 is: Psychology, Education and Neurosciences: Building bridges for human development. It is obvious that the main aims of our Association are determined by the research that is carried out in the confluence of these two areas of knowledge: Psychology and Education. At the beginning of the 21st century, both of them become vertebrate, by the manifest contributions of Neuroscience, especially when these are not only limited to the academic field, but also moved to the professional one. These are the bridges we want to build: the best informed and the most current research at the service of the different participants in the educational community: students, parents, teachers, psychoeducational specialists and academic authorities.

I hope and I wish that researchers, teachers and professionals in general interested in Psychology of Education, coming from all over the world (as has happened in previous Congresses) are encouraged to visit La Rioja, where I have no doubt they will feel warmly welcomed to share the most relevant and current contributions that have emerged around our area of knowledge: Developmental Psychology and Education. The Rioja University has generously provided us with its facilities. Sylvia (the President of the Congress, a professor of our area of knowledge, and a qualified member of ACIPE) and her competent team are preparing with great care all the details of the Congress.

From this moment, I am pleased to welcome all the participants and invite students, graduates, masters and doctorates to join us to share their concerns and academic and professional aspirations. Among all -teachers, students, researchers and psychoeducational professionals- we want to create and authentic teaching and learning communities. Within them will be easier our personal and professional development and that of those who share with us the different formal, non-formal and informal educational contexts.

Looking forward to welcoming you soon.

See you in Logroño, June 2018.

President of Organizing Committee
IX International Congress of Psychology and Education

On behalf of the Organising and scientific committees, I am pleased to invite you all to actively take part in the “IX International Congress of Psychology and Education (CIPE18)” which will be held 21, 22 & 23  June 2018, in Logroño.

Following the success of our past congresses, held at the University of Alicante, we are sure that Logroño and the University of La Rioja will be an excellent new meeting point for all. Logroño is the capital of the Autonomous Region of La Rioja, noteworthy for its artistic, environmental and human richness. The city is remarked for its openness and solidarity, welcoming all with its varied social and cultural attractions.

The scientific program of the “IX International Congress CIPE18” has been envisioned as a shared platform of scientific communication, debate and learning. It brings together, in an interdisciplinary way, the latest advances and perspectives in human development. Also, neuroscience and the scientific education provided by academics and relevant professionals will allow us to reflect the most burning and controversial issues. We will do this through the use of current lectures, expert panels, debates, oral communications or poster type presentations we invite you to present and participate in.

We hope that the effort and enthusiasm invested in bringing you all this rigorous scientific agenda, highlighted by its supreme quality in addressing the newest aspects in the Psychological and Educational area, result in the achievement of our proposed goal. With this goal in mind, we have gathered together the most prestigious psychologists, neuroscientists, geneticists, pedagogues, psycho-pedagogues, neuropaediatricians, etc. from Spain, France, Germany, Italy, England and other European countries as well as from America and Latin America. 

Beyond the scientific aspect, this meeting is also encouraged by the reencounter of those who  share common scientific values. Logroño and La Rioja are an ideal location for the natural transition of the scientific program to one that is also motivated by the importance of the public relations among its participants in the “IX International Congress of Psychology and Education”.

We look forward to offering you all a warm welcome to Logroño, the birthplace of the Spanish language, of excellent wine and of a rich human and historic heritage.
