ITC2015 - Call for Papers

It looks like the Integral Theory Conference will be a yearly event. The MetaIntegral Foundation just sent out a "call for papers" for the 2015 ITC.

This year's theme, Integral Impacts: Using Integrative Metatheories to Catalyze Effective Change, seems to offer a lot of possibilities for useful learning.
Dear Friends,

MetaIntegral Foundation is pleased to announce our Call for Papers for the 2015 Integral Theory Conference. The conference theme is Integral Impacts: Using Integrative Metatheories to Catalyze Effective Change. We are proud to launch in conjunction with our conference partner, The HUB: An Integral Center for Diversity, Vitality & Creativity at Sonoma State University.

We also want to announce that our conference organization team shifts this year. Our terrific co-founder and three-time co-lead organizer Mark Forman is stepping down. We would love to have him back, but he is called to additional work and life projects. However, we are happy to say he is consulting with us about the 2015 event.

In addition, we feel extremely pleased to announce that Mark Fabionar -- Director of The HUB (our conference partner) -- and Alicia Stammer will be joining our seasoned team of Sean Esbjorn-Hargens, Jordan Luftig, and Lisa Celentano. This strong team collectively has the experience of running all the previous ITCs as well as creative ideas about how we can take the conference to the next level. We will be announcing new design features and elements in the months to come.

The conference will take place in the new state-of-the-art Student Center at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California on July 16 - July 19, 2015. Pre-conference workshops will happen on Thursday, July 16, and the main conference from Thursday evening, July 16 to Sunday, July 19, 2015.

The Call for Papers details four categories of submissions: workshops, papers, poster presentations, and art -- as well as guidelines and deadlines for submission. Note that we are calling for art for the first time in the history of our conference, as we are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first Integral Art Exhibit at ITC 2015. 

Please download the attached Call for Papers and consider your submission!


Sean Esbjorn-Hargens, Ph.D
Jordan Luftig, M.A.
Mark Fabionar, M.A.
