Announcement - PSI Network Conference postponed to 2021.

After close consultation with the University of Melbourne, our speakers, and attendees, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the PSI Network Conference until 2021.

Although Australia is not experiencing any heightened vulnerability due to the Coronavirus, COVID-19, we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of our guests, as well as acknowledging that many universities are now restricting or advising against non-essential travel. We’re saddened to have to make this decision, not least because it will mean we need to wait longer to welcome you to Melbourne.

If you have already purchased a ticket to the conference, you will be refunded shortly.

We want to thank everyone from around the world who has supported the conference, accommodated us during these difficult times, and we are sorry to all who were looking forward to this conference. The PSI Network Conference will return, even better in 2021 and we look forward to hosting you in Melbourne next year.

If you have any questions regarding the event postponement, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Nerisa Dozo (nerisa.dozo@unimelb.edu.au) who is managing academic registrations.

Jen Overbeck (j.overbeck@mbs.edu) and Katie Greenaway (katharine.greenaway@unimelb.edu.au) are also available to help in any way.


PSI Network. What does power do to people? How do we gain influence with others? Are people respected more for showing their might, or for collaborating and building bridges? These questions about power, status, and influence are just a few of the questions examined by PSI Network members.

PSI 2020 will take place at Melbourne Business School - University of Melbourne from the 21st to the 23rd of March 2020. The conference will include a full day of traditional hour long talks and a second day of panels oriented around applied topics, plus a half-day pre-conference on teaching PSI topics.
