Fostering Innovative Science, Technology, Innovation and Humanities in a Disruptive World (FROSTIVUS)

3rd International Conference of Psychotechnology (ICOP)

“Sustainable Innovation:
What, Why, and How?”


in conjunction with 3rd ICSSLAH – “Rethinking Indonesia in Digital Era”

September 5 – 6, 2018

Venue: BINUS Alam Sutra, Indonesia




We invite psychologists, academics and researchers from all fields and backgrounds to submit empirical research articles about psychology-driven innovation, basic psychological research with potential of becoming tangible application, and assessment method of the innovation implemented.

Psychotechnology is defined as (VandenBos, 2007):

1. The body of psychological facts and principals involved in the practical applications of psychology.

2. The application of such knowledge.

This definition is close to applied psychology (VandenBos, 2007), i.e.:

The application of the theories, principles, and techniques of psychology to practical concerns, such as political campaigns, consumer affairs, industry, ergonomics, education, advertising, vocational guidance, problems of living or coping, and environmental issues. It may be contrasted with theoretical psychology or academic psychology, in which the emphasis is on understanding for its own sake rather than the utility of the knowledge.

Coleman R. Griffith (1928) stated:

“It is difficult to think of human beings who simply are; we almost always think of them as for better or for worse, and this means either ethics or psychotechology”.

Psychotechnology is the amelioration of applied psychology (Gundlach, 1935). Psychologytechnology is a specialization in psychology which deals with the analysis and management of psychological reality and principles to accommodate needs and problem solving in our personal and professional daily life. Psychotechnology is a more advanced form of applied psychology in clinical, medical, social, educational, and organizational fields. It is expected–in certain facets–to produce tangible tools to improve human performance.

Prof. Gary P. Latham *
Former President of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology (SIOP) / University of Toronto, Canada

Gary P. Latham is the Secretary of State Professor of Organizational Effectiveness at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. From 1983-1990, he was the Ford Motor Research Professor, Business School at the University of Washington. He is widely viewed as one of the world’s leading experts in the field of organizational behavior and goal setting theory. His contributions to organizational behavior have changed the field, both theoretically and empirically. His work on goal-setting has made fundamental contributions to both the area of motivation and self-regulation and makes him a household name to students and scholars in organizational behavior. In fact, if you are familiar with research on goals, you have heard people cite his name, perhaps in association with Edwin Locke, hundreds of times. You may remember their landmark article based on decades of their own and other’s research on goals in the American Psychologist: Building a practically useful theory of goal setting and task motivation: A 35-year odyssey.
