Second Announcement

“Alexander R. Luria and psychology in the 21st century”

The 2nd International Conference in commemoration
of the centenary of Alexander R. Luria

Moscow 24-27
September 2002


This conference is organised by Moscow State University in cooperation with the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Academy of Education, the Russian Psychological Society and the International Neuropsychological Association.

The enormous international emphasis of the 1st Luria Memorial Conference held in 1997 is one of the reasons for organising regular meetings of researches from all over the world centred around Luria’s ideas. The essential theme of the coming conference: “Alexander R. Luria and psychology in the 21st century”.

We hope the meeting of psychologists from Europe, America and Asia will enhance scientific contacts between colleagues from different parts of the world and contribute to the understanding of Luria’s impact to psychology. Lectures, discussions, presentations together with other scientific and professional events will stimulate intellectual dialogue and offer researches from different backgrounds the opportunity to clarify their positions within the international scientific community.

We look forward to seeing you in Moscow in September 2002.
