In 2017, the Australian Conference on Personality and Individual Differences will be held in the harbour city, Sydney.  First held in 2001, ACPID has become an annual event for personality and individual researchers, academics, practitioners and students. This year, the conference will be held on the 1st and 2nd December at the University of Sydney. Our conference includes workshops, oral and poster presentations of Australia’s leading edge personality and individual differences research.

Our about us page shows the development of the conference since 2001. Each year the conference is organised by members from universities throughout Australia. This year the conference is being organised by Carolyn MacCann and her team.

Research in personality and individual differences is a worldwide endeavour as demonstrated by the organisations also shown on our about us page.
