Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased and honored to announce that the 17th European Conference on Personality (ECP17) will be held at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland), from July 15 to July 19, 2014. The conference is co-organized by the European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP) and the Institute of Psychology at the University of Lausanne. ECP17 will take place just after the 28th International Congress of Applied Psychology (ICAP 2014), held July 9 to July 13, 2014 in Paris, France.

With 7 keynote presentations, 12 invited symposia, 12 open-call symposia, 16 paper sessions, 2 poster sessions, and 2 pre-conference workshops, we expect to cover a wide variety of topics, including: personality, health and well-being; personality and neuroscience; personality and work and organizational psychology; personality and psychopathology; personality, motivation, and emotion; and many others. Moreover, there will be several awards:  the EAPP Early Achievement Award; the Life Career Award; and awards for the three best posters.

The biannual ECP conference is among the most important events to promote and exchange the most exciting research in personality. We hope that Lausanne, the Olympic capital, ideally situated next to Lake Geneva and the Alps, will offer a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere for networking with leading experts, emerging scholars, and enthusiastic young students in personality psychology.

Registration is now open.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lausanne!
