The Program Committee invites submissions for the twenty-fourth annual meeting of the International Society for Research on Identity (ISRI), formerly the Society for Research on Identity Formation (SRIF). The conference will be held at the Van Swinderen Huys Conference Center from 6:00pm, Thursday, May 18th to Noon, Sunday, May 21st, 2015. Membership in ISRI is not required to submit a presentation for consideration or to attend the conference.

The invited program includes keynote speaker Wim Meeus who will be giving a talk titled, “A Developmental Reinterpretation of Longitudinal Identity Research”. We will also have a plenary event where Marion Kloep and Leo B. Hendry will be giving a talk titled, “Toward FluIdentity: A Systematic Outlook on Identity Research.” We will also be sponsoring two invited professional development sessions. First, Elisabetta Crocetti will be facilitating a session titled, “Systematic Reviews with Meta-Analysis: Applications to Identity Research”. Moin Syed and Maria Wängqvist will be facilitating a session titled, “An Interactive Session on Mixed Methods Research.”


ISRI is an interdisciplinary organization and strongly encourages submissions from a diversity of fields such as psychology, sociology, family studies, and anthropology. The committee is particularly receptive to proposals for sessions that are integrative regarding a particular aspect of identity and that encourage discussion. In regard to format, interactive sessions with short introductory statements followed by audience participation are especially welcomed. Posters and individual paper presentations are the best vehicle for purely empirical studies. Well-integrated empirical paper sessions are encouraged. Submissions are due by Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Submission and further information can be found on the conference website at
