We are pleased to announce that the schedule for the 2015 ARP Conference in St. Louis, MO from June 11-13 is now available! An overview of the conference schedule is available here, and the list of poster session assignments is available here. Online registration for the conference ends June 1.

The conference includes two and a half days of scientific meetings. The meeting begins with a Presidential symposium at 4 p.m. on Thursday June 11, followed by an opening reception. The meeting culminates with an optional gala dinner in the Zodiac Room of the Chase Park Plaza Hotel Saturday evening (separate fee). Conference registration includes breakfast and coffee breaks both days, light appetizers at the Thursday reception, drinks at Friday’s poster session, and lunch one of the days.

The meeting will be held at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. ARP has negotiated a rate of $135/regular room or $155/one-bedroom suite; the ARP rates run from June 9 to 15. Reservations can be made one of two ways:

Scientific Program
An overview of the conference program is available here, and a list of poster session assignments is available here. The program committee has selected symposia and posters to reflect the broad range of personality psychology. In addition, the program will feature a presidential symposium, a Rising Stars symposium to showcase the field’s stellar young talent, a data blitz session, an invited symposium sponsored by the European Association for Personality Psychology, and award talks from the Tanaka dissertation award winners and the winner of the Murray award, Dean Keith Simonton.
