ACPID is the premier scientific conference in Australia for personality and individual differences research. Researchers with interests in traits, abilities, and other aspects of human variation will find a receptive multidisciplinary audience to engage with their work. This year we particularly encourage submissions related to individual differences research in applied fields such as organisational psychology and positive psychology. The 2019 conference is proudly hosted by the People and Performance Research Group, QUT Business School, in partnership with the Personality Processes Lab at the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences.
