A Conference on Tech and Relationships

Our team, supported by EASP, Facebook, AdopteUnMec, APA Science Directorate, Eris Enterprises, and EmbrLabs, invites you to join us, as we gather for a summer conference on technology and relationships in Annecy, France, May 24-25, 2019. The conference’s goal is to integrate applications from technology companies and theory from psychology researchers to: 1) advance knowledge of how social interactions enhance relationships and well-being, and 2) apply psychological theories to understand the ways in which modern, technology-mediated interactions may improve relationships and well-being.


We look forward to welcoming the top researchers and industry members from around the world, to understand complicated issues surrounding the latest challenges in relationships and technology and explore the newest developments on the horizon!


Our conference boasts industry- and academic-leading plenary speakers (like Julianne Holt-Lunstad from Brigham Young University, Hans IJzerman from the Université Grenoble Alpes, Justin Garcia from the Kinsey Institute, and Tim Loving from Facebook) focused on the intersection of technology and social relationships. We will also offer hackathons for data exploration and hardware development over the course of the conference.


The conference will have approximately 40-60 attendees from around the world, in disciplines such as psychology, computer science, therapy, and more.


Thank you for your support!


Dr. Rhonda Balzarini, Dr. Rick Klein, Dr. Elisa Sarda, Dr. Hans IJzerman, & Dr. Michelle Kaufman
