29-30 November, 2019

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.

ACPID will not proceed as an in-person conference in 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19 on safety, travel, and funding. Instead, a FREE online ACPID will go ahead in a different format, with a focus on research student development and mentoring. 

PLEASE NOTE: 2020 Abstracts are for student presentations only.

The conference will include:

  1. DAY 1 MORNING (Friday 4 Dec): An academic showcase of Australian personality research (including AProf Luke Smillie; AProf Pat Dunlop, AProf Natalie Loxton, AProf Fiona Barlow, Dr Conal Monoghan and Dr Heather Douglas)
  2. DAY 1 AFTERNOON (Friday 4 Dec): Student “blitz” presentations (note that this year, the paper sessions will be for student presenters only).
  3. DAY 2 (Saturday 5 Dec): Student workshop and mentoring sessions
