Dear Colleagues,

It is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to the CyberPsychology, CyberTherapy & Social Networking Conference to help celebrate our 20th Anniversary Conference (CYPSY20)! CYPSY20 will be held on the University of California San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla, California from the 29th of June to the 2nd of July, 2015.

The CYPSY Conference began in 1996 and featured presentations dealing mainly with conceptual matters, ‘what ifs’ and the future possibilities of healthcare and technology. The conference focused on Virtual Reality, but has now grown to be more inclusive of other interactive technologies and to include presentations that demonstrate controlled clinical trials. It has also grown to include the investigation of social networking tools on individual behavior, society, and interpersonal relationships.

CYPSY20 invites presentations in Virtual Reality, Games for Health, Augmented and Mixed Reality, Avatars, Shared Virtual Worlds, Video Game Virtual Reality (VGVR), Mobile Health, Wireless Health and other emerging applications. This is an exciting time for our mutual research, and we hope you will be able to help us toast our past successes and future endeavors at CYPSY20.
