CFP Conflict Conference (Texas)

The Conflict Conference 2015 CFP

The Conflict Conference (TCC) will hold its 2nd annual conference at the University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin) on April 10-11, 2015. TCC is a multidisciplinary annual conference promoting the study of conflict and conflict resolution. We invite Papers, Panel Proposals, and Posters on any relevant topic such as apologies, advocacy, dispute resolution, peace, negotiation, reconciliation, mediation, restorative justice, conflict management, and ethics.

The DEADLINE for submissions is December 10th 2014. Notices of acceptance will be sent no later than January 31st 2015. PAPER PROPOSALS must include the author’s name and institutional affiliation, the title of the paper, and an abstract of no more than 150 words for the program. In addition, proposals must include a 600 word extended abstract without personal information. PANEL PROPOSALS must include a maximum 150 word abstract for the program, names, titles, and abstracts for each participant.  POSTERS must include the author’s name and institutional affiliation, the title of the paper, and an abstract of no more than 150 words. Note that abstracts should be based on research that is clearly in progress (if not yet completed), with a well-formulated research question, and with a good description of the types of data used (if the work is empirical) and of the approach. For posters, a clear description of a research design may be acceptable, as this can lead to useful discussions in the early stages of a project. Documents must be attached to an email as a Word document. TCC welcomes submissions from students. Please indicate student status in all paper proposals. Please send all proposals to TCC via email.

Conference events will be held on Friday, April 10th and Saturday, April 11th 2015 on the UT-Austin campus. We are delighted to welcome Dr. Linda Putnam from UC Santa Barbara as our keynote speaker. A conference registration fee of USD $40.00 is required.

TCC is sponsored by The UT Project for Conflict Resolution.
