The Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s Annual Convention is the premier international event for more than 3500 social and personality psychologists. Attendees from academia, non-profit, government, and private sectors present and discuss research, network and collaborate on projects, and pursue professional development while advancing science and pedagogy in the field.
San Francisco, February 16 - 19, 2022
At present, SPSP is proceeding with plans for an in-person convention. SPSP will closely monitor guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and other public health officials, as well as state and local conditions. We will make necessary adjustments to ensure the health, well-being, and safety of our meeting attendees. Updates will be provided as information develops.
This smaller event allows for connections, discussions, and potential collaborations around a specific theme that crosses the sub-disciplines of social and personality psychology.
