Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you all to attend the 20th European Conference on Personality (ECP20) that is scheduled to take place on the 12th-15th July 2022 in Madrid, Spain, as a hybrid event.

It will soon be two years since the Covid-19 outbreak started and over three years since many of us last met in the beautiful sun-washed city of Zadar. The pandemic has tested us all in ways we could not have previously imagined and forced us to change our daily routines and work habits. It has been a challenging time for many of the members and friends of our association. My heart truly goes out to all of you who have lost their loved ones or who have suffered as a consequence of Covid-19.

In early last spring, only a couple of weeks into the Covid-19 pandemic, we made a very difficult decision to postpone the ECP20 until 2022. The decision was not made lightly but in the hindsight, it was undoubtedly the only possible solution, as it became clear quite soon that the pandemic was going to last longer than just a few months. While we regret that we couldn’t hold the conference last year, we are very excited to now have the opportunity to run a first-ever hybrid ECP which you can either attend on site in the majestic city of Madrid or participate remotely in selected conference sessions. We hope that by holding the ECP20 as a hybrid event, we will be able to have a more diverse and inclusive set of conference attendees and that it will also help our conference to become more sustainable. We have secured an excellent list of keynote speakers and invited symposia but equally importantly, we are very much looking forward to hearing, discussing and debating any significant new developments and scientific advancements that you have made over the past years. We have a lot to catch up on!

Once again, I am very much looking forward to being able to welcome you to the ECP20 next summer. I hope you will join us to make the upcoming conference a truly memorable event. In the meantime, let’s raise a glass of Rioja together and pay tribute to the local organisers of the ECP20—Professor Oscar Garcia Lopez, Gerardo Bielons and their team—for their continuous efforts to prepare the event in spite of the challenging times.

Warmest regards,

Anu Realo
President of EAPP November 2021


I’d like to welcome you to Universidad Europea de Madrid that will host the 20th Conference of Personality (ECP20). At our university every day we try to provide our students with a holistic education, shaping leaders and professionals prepared to respond to the demands of a global world, who will add value to their professional fields and contribute to social progress with their entrepreneurial spirit and ethical values. This conference will generate and transfer knowledge through applied research, contributing in the same way to Personality Psychology progress.

We expect you have a good time in our University and our City. I’m sure that it will be an amazing experience for you.

Best Regards,

Elena Gazapo
Rector Universidad Europea de Madrid


Welcome to Madrid and welcome to our University. We hope that ECP20 will cover all your expectations maintaining the high quality standards that previous conferences had. We are convinced that this conference will give you the opportunity to discover latest scientific advances in Personality Psychology and will help researchers to establish new links and relationships that will help them in the development of their research.

I hope you could enjoy our hospitality and our city, one of the best in the world to live and work.

Best regards,

Oscar García
Chair of the Conference
