Welcome to the Close Relationships Preconference Website

The Relationships Research Interest Group of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology is pleased to announce the 2014 Close Relationships Preconference. Our annual preconference takes place the day prior to the SPSP Annual Conference.

This year, it will be held in Austin, TX, on Thursday February 13, 2014. Join us for an exciting line-up of speakers and sessions. As always, there will be lots of time for discussion and debate, and the preconference includes a hot, seated lunch, to maximize such opportunities.

Our preconference has a rich history of lively conversation about the most recent theory and evidence in relationship science. In addition to the Caryl Rusbult Early Career Award, the Graduate Student Research Paper Award, and the ever-popular “data blitz”, this year’s preconference will include a special session on gender differences in romantic relationships. Please check out the links above for more information on speakers, schedule, and award nominations and deadlines.

We hope to see you in Austin!
