October 5-7, 2023

24th Occasional Temperament Conference

The 24th edition of the Occasional Temperament Conference will take place October 5-7 2023 in Orford, Québec, Canada.

The Occasional Temperament Conference (OTC) welcomes researchers, students and practitioners from around the world who have a special interest in the study of temperament and its use in a variety of contexts. Given that it brings together prominent experts in the field into a small-scale setting, the OTC offers a unique opportunity for networking with leaders and colleagues who are passionate about the study and applications of temperament.

The 24th edition of the OTC will feature two distinguished keynote speakers and seven symposiums covering multiple domains, from the biological underpinnings of temperament to its practical applications.
