Keynote Speakers

Dr. Roberto Colom

One small step for the brain, one giant leap for human intelligence

Almost twenty five years after the editorial written for the journal 'Intelligence' by Richard Haier (The end of intelligence research) I will highlight the most prominent findings at the intersection between the psychometric and neuroimaging research of intelligence. The main question to answer is: are we scientists doing our best for achieving a giant leap for humankind?

Dr. Robert F. Krueger

Personality, Psychopathology, Individual Differences, and DSM-5

The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th Edition; DSM-5) is slated to be published in May 2013.  This talk will focus on how DSM-5 is (and is not) connected with research in personality and individual differences, and how working to enhance the connection between Psychiatry and individual differences research can enrich both areas.
