International Reversal Theory Conferences are held every two years. Between 2003-2011, some authors provided their papers/slides for the Reversal Theory Conference Google Docs Collection. Files are labeled with the year and author.

International, Interactive Discussion Group: 2023

The Reversal Theory Society is planning an international interactive discussion group to be held ONLINE July 7, and if needed, on September 8, 2023. The times will be from 0900 to 1200 Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) US or GMT/BST -5.

While we’re working on the conference details and conference links, start organizing what you would like to present, see, and hear!  Basic format: Each presenter gives a brief statement (5 to 10 minutes) on ideas-in-the-works, partially completed research, and/or conceptual applications they would like the community to discuss. We are more interested in discussion than presentations of completed works/projects or finished articles. As a result, we will be dedicating most of the time in each session to discussion and debate, and the opportunity to explore new ideas. This is a way to stay informed with our colleagues, solicit feedback, and touch base during the year between the normal two year face-to-face conferences.

Call for Abstracts

Please submit a one paragraph abstract including title, authors and affiliations to: [email protected] Submit by June 19, 2023. The abstract should not exceed 500 words. All abstracts should be in English but a second language version (e.g., French, Spanish, etc) may also be included.

In your transmittal, let us know which date works best for you, either July 7th or September 8th, 2023. We will try to accommodate your preference as best as possible but we cannot guarantee the date. Presentations will be scheduled as they are received.
