Announcement and call for abstracts, deadline: June 1, 2009


published: 07.09.2009 by

The next EAPP expert meeting will take place at Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (www.knir.it) from October 28 till October 30, 2009.

Organizers are Jan Pieter van Oudenhoven and Boele de Raad.

Purpose of meeting

There is a growing interest among personality psychologists, social psychologists and cross-cultural psychologists in moral and evaluational motivational principles and their relation to personality. Virtues, in particular, are concepts that have drawn the attention of personality psychologists over the last decades, but are fashionable again because of positive psychology and evolutionary psychology. It is the purpose of the meeting to bring together personality psychologists and some colleagues from other related disciplines with a strong interest in this topic.

Participants: 20 to 25

Costs: There will be no fee, and meals will be (almost) complementary. Participants do, however, have to arrange their lodging and to pay their hotel costs.

Abstracts: You are invited to apply for this meeting by sending an abstract of your possible contribution to Boele de Raad (b.de.raad@rug.nl) or Jan Pieter van Oudenhoven (j.p.l.m.van.oudenhoven@rug.nl).

You will be informed about acceptance within a couple of weeks. Deadline for submissions: June 1, 2009.
