ACR Conference 2015
October 7-10, 2015

(12:00 midnight Eastern time)
The Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) 2015 is a Conference with a difference. The Conference Program will be an integration of special Institutes, Symposia, Trainings and Workshops
sessions encircling and within the main general Conference Program. Proposals are invited to create ACR’s Conference 2015
Program. We are offering the opportunity to be part of emerging
and engaging conflict resolution research and practice applications as we consider knowledge transfer in all its aspects.
There will be special Institutes, Symposia, Workshops and Training sessions with specific content programs tailored for specific
topics and audiences interwoven within the general Conference program. The Conference’s general program and special
sessions start on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 and continue
through to Saturday, October 10, 2015.
Proposals for Conference 2015 must be submitted no later
than December 15, 2014 at 12 midnight Eastern time.

and practice skill applications). We want people to “think about
