Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the conference has been postponed. When the organizing committee is able to coordinate future options, we post updates.

Our team, supported by Eris Unleashed invites you to join us, as we gather for a summer conference on technology and relationships in Annecy, France.

The conference’s goal is to integrate applications from technology 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 interpersonal relationships and individuals well-being.

We look forward to welcoming top researchers and industry members from around the world to help understand how technology can be used to maximize and enhance people’s interpersonal relationships and to explore how new developments in research and in technology can be used to promote meaningful, and long-lasting social relationships.

Our conference boasts leading scholars (like Jim Coan from the University of Virginia, Gurit Birnbaum from IDC Herzliya, Justin Lehmiller of the Kinsey Institute, and Catrin Finkenauer from Utrecht University) focused on the intersection of technology and social relationships. We will also offer “hackathon” style development sessions where attendees will have the chance to produce concrete products/applications and begin new collaborations with industry, as well as other researchers, during the conference.

Thank you for your support!
Dr. Rhonda Balzarini, Dr. Hans IJzerman, Dr. Amy Moors, & Dr. Rick Klein
