Intelligence

2019 July 11-13: Minneapolis, MN

Welcome to the website for the 2019 International Society for Intelligence Research conference. This year, the meeting will be in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minnesota has a special place in the history of twin studies, which have taught us a lot about intelligence. The city is home to the world famous study of twins reared apart (see Science paper) which was led by Professor Thomas Bouchard who, we are delighted to say, will be speaking at the conference. There is a fantastic line-up of confirmed renowned speakers. If you have not been to an ISIR meeting before but would like to learn more about intelligence: how it is measured; how and why people vary; other traits that are associated with it; real-world outcomes associated with it, and the latest in genetic findings, you are very welcome to attend. You’ll find information here on how to register.

The local host is Professor James J. Lee. The conference offers an unrivaled opportunity for those interested in intelligence to meet, present their research, and discuss current questions and applications.
