International Conference on Mindfulness (ICM)

10 - 13 juli 2018

The ICM will be held July 10-13 2018 in the historic city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, under the scientific lead of professors Susan Bögels and Anne Speckens of the University of Amsterdam and the Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen.

The conference will bring together progress in mindfulness research in the domains of medicine, education, organizations, and developmental, clinical and neuropsychology. The theme of the ICM is “science from within”, as scientific progress in mindfulness is supported by a deep investigation of the process of mindfulness meditation within ourselves and the people we study.

We aspire the ICM to be wide-ranging and inclusive, and hope that it will reflect diversity in nationalities, ethnicity, and perspectives, welcoming research contributions from across the world and from different traditions. Finally, this ICM will connect mindfulness to literature, music, dance and film events during and around the conference, offering a mixture of activities to enjoy while staying in Amsterdam for the ICM 2018.
