SPSP 2024

The Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s Annual Convention is the premier international event for social and personality psychologists. Attendees from academia, non-profits, 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. SPSP also offers preconferences before the convention so attendees may have the opportunity for deep dives into niche research topics.
