 Days of Applied Psychology


Days of Applied Psychology (in Serbian, Dani primenjene psihologije or Дани примењене психологије) is a traditional annual nonprofit conference organized by the Department of Psychology of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Niš, Serbia. It was founded in 2004 and initially devised as a space where psychologists from the area of Southern Serbia could meet, present their works and exchange ideas. Organized annually, in the years to follow, number of participants grew quickly attracting ever larger numbers of scientists and practitioners in various areas of psychology both from Serbia and other regional countries. Plenary lecturers and participants who were initially from Serbia only, started coming from all over the South East Europe and later from throughout Europe. This led to the transformation of the Days of Applied Psychology from a small local conference to a regional one. Devised as a regional conference, the working language of the first Days of Applied Psychology conferences was Serbian.

After a decade of work, in 2014, 10th Conference Days of Applied Psychology broadened its scope and became an international conference. The working language of the conference became English. In 2015, Days of Applied Psychology stands as one of the most prominent annual conferences in the area of psychology in the region of Southeastern Europe. In 2015, in an effort to promote the intercultural exchange and intercultural scope of the conference, as well as cooperation between psychologists working in different countries, the conference scientific committee proposed a program currently tentatively called Sciencebridge. The idea of the program is to devote a part of the conference to presenting psychological research works originating from a specific geographic area of the world, thus bolstering international cooperation and promoting cross-cultural research in psychology. In 2015. Sciencebridge program will be devoted to presenting psychological research studies conducted in China and India.

Priding itself with good scientific program, traditional south Serbian hospitality and cuisine and an exciting social program for which it became well known, Days of Applied Psychology now aims to become one of the benchmark conferences attracting psychologists from throughout the world. A motivated and professional team forming the scientific and organizational committees works hard to deliver the promise of exciting scientific ideas, good company and good food to all the participants of the conference.

In 2015, Days of Applied Psychology is one of the prominent conferences in the area of psychology in South Eastern Europe and is ranked as the first in the official conference priorities of the Faculty of Philosophy.

Organization of the conference is supported by grants from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological development of the Republic of Serbia, both directly and indirectly through organizational work of researchers by national science projects (149062 led by prof. dr Vladimir Nešić till 2010, and 179002 led by prof. dr Vladimir Hedrih, since 2011).
