The Australasian Society for Philosophy and Psychology was formed in 2017 to promote interaction in Australasia among philosophers and psychologists, broadly construed to include anyone interested in scientific study of the mind, and scholars in related fields on issues of common concern (including but not limited to neuroscience, linguistics, computer science, and anthropology).
The primary function of the ASPP is to hold a biennial conferences that brings together philosophers and scientists with a common interest in study of the mind. The first ASPP conference will be held in Sydney, Australia in 2018, with a tentative date of 5-7 December.

Membership in the ASPP is open to anyone interested in advancing the sciences of the mind in Australasia. We do not plan to process ordinary memberships until the first meeting, but please contact us if you would like to support the society in the meantime by becoming a founding member.
The current president of the ASPP is Professor John Sutton (Macquarie University). We are governed by an board of directors consisting of representatives from philosophy, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience.
We are not affiliated with any particular university. Nor are we a formal part of the Society for Philosophy and Psychology, though we do maintain friendly ties with them.
