European Conferences on Personality

The EAPP organizes biennial conferences, called “European Conference on Personality” consisting of symposia addressing various topics of interest to the Association, paper presentations, poster sessions, invited lectures, and other forms of exchange that may be fruitful to the advancement of personality psychology. At each conference, agreements are made about the location and the organizational responsibilities of future conferences.

Open Call for Proposals to Host the ECP22 in 2026

(applications will be considered on a rolling basis until September 15, 2023)

The Executive Committee (EC) of the European Association of Personality Personality (EAPP) is excited to issue a call for proposals to host its biennial conference—the 22nd European Conference on Personality (ECP22) in 2026. Although this call is for the 2026 conference, we will also consider proposals for ECP23 to be held in 2028. Please indicate in your application whether you are interested in hosting ECP in 2026, in 2028, or both.

European Conferences on Personality (ECPs) have been held in a relatively wide range of European countries (see the list here), and we seek to maintain this diversity[1]. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals for conference locations beyond Western Europe but will consider all locations based on the merits outlined in Section 4 (Evaluation) below.

Please upload a single PDF file of the proposal to the survey linked here by September 15, 2023.
