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 2021 will run over two days, 3rd & 4th December, using an online web-conferencing platform, Gather.Town. The conference will include a workshop on item response theory (IRT), keynote presentations from Professor Martin Sellbom and Professor Simine Vazire, alongside conference talks and poster presentations.

Call for 2021 ABSTRACTS IS OPEN (closing 1 November 2021 at 5:00pm)

Please see our ABSTRACT SUBMISSION page for more information about submissions and to submit your abstract.

We encourage academics, postgraduate students, and honours students to submit abstracts and share their research in a friendly, supportive environment. ACPID conferences are a great opportunity to present your work to fellow Australasian researchers interested in personality and individual differences.
