About the Conference
The conference theme, 'Psychology and Technology', refers to two independent entities working together for the betterment of the society. ‘Psychology’ is the study of mind and behavior that encompasses the biological, social, and environmental factors that affect how people think, act and feel. On the other hand, ‘Technology’, is the study that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment.
The interface between Psychology and Technology has emerged gradually and has increased the capabilities of the two. It has made it almost impossible to separate on how we conduct our social lives, business, health care, education, etc. Humans are evolved, social and cognitive beings who have long sought technologies that extend their capacities to process information and support their work practices.
