The Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2014 inaugural TANG Prize for Achievements in Psychology. As a Department at a public university, we believe in furthering the science of Psychology in service of enhancing human wellbeing. Applications are encouraged from internationally-recognized scholars in Psychology or a closely-related field who have shown creativity, and rigor in their approach and whose record of achievement has left an indelible mark on the field. This award has been made possible through generous support from the TANG Foundation. The TANG Foundation is a charitable institution with the mandate to raise awareness of the importance of psychological wellbeing in the world.
The recipient of the TANG Prize for Achievements in Psychology will be awarded a cash prize of $100,000 CAD at a ceremony held on the University of Toronto campus on November 12, 2014. During the campus visit, the recipient will be asked to meet with University of Toronto students and to hold a public lecture.
Applicants should outline in no more than two pages the ways in which they have a major impact on the progress of psychology, anywhere in the world, particularly in its application to the psychological wellbeing of humanity. This application letter should highlight how the applicant has contributed to the science, practice, or application of Psychology as it pertains to the understanding, promotion, restoration, or application of psychological methods, research, and techniques in addressing challenges related to wellbeing at the individual or community level. In addition to this application letter, applications should also include a current CV. Nomination packages (application letter and CV) should be submitted electronically in one email by August 15, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should also ask three referees, who must be internationally acknowledged experts in the field, to send reference letters directly to the Department via email to email@example.com by August 30, 2014.

The 2015 ISSID conference will be held in London, Ontario in Canada from Monday July 27 (registration and evening welcoming reception) through Friday July 31. The original plan to hold this conference in Toronto had to be changed due to the prohibitive cost that the Society and members would have incurred. London, Ontario is a beautiful city about a 2-hour drive from Toronto which can also be reached by plane or shuttle bus. The city offers many amenities and excellent restaurants and is close to such attractions as the Stratford Theater Festival, Niagara Falls, and Toronto which many delegates will be flying into.
The conference itself will be held in meeting rooms on the campus of the University of Western Ontario, easily reached by car or bus from nearby hotels. Delegates will be provided with free bus passes. The University will also provide very inexpensive private bedrooms in one of its recently constructed residence halls which is within easy walking distance of the campus. More details will follow when we create the ISSID 2015 website. Tony Vernon is serving as the conference organizer.
