Dear Friends

The city of Reims has much to celebrate in July 2013. Not only will it receive the participants of the 16th international Reversal Theory conference, but it will be the first international RT meeting to be held in France. It is not an exaggeration to say that we are really proud that France and Reims has been chosen as the venue for this conference.

Prestigious researchers should come from all over the world so as to work together and share their knowledge and their experience. It is our desire that not only information but also cultures will interact in ways that will present opportunities for profound academic dialogue.

The scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures, shorter oral communications, as well as poster sessions (which will be limited to graduate students) covering all fields of application of Reversal Theory (psychology, health sciences, sport & exercise, work, etc.). I cordially invite you to share your work with our community during this exciting conference by submitting a paper by April 30, 2013.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you in Reims at the occasion of the 16th international Reversal Theory conference and sincerely hope that you will join us to make this event a great success.

Reims is waiting for you !

Warmest regards,

Fabien D. Legrand, PhD

Reims is a French middle-sized city (counting about 150.000 inhabitants) whis is located in northeastern France (140km from Paris). It has two thousand years of history and has long earned the name of  « capital of Champagne ». Reims is also known for its cathedral, a masterpiece of gothic art listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, where generations of French kings were crowned over more than ten centuries. This is a place which has, according to its residents, a friendly charm, nice coffehouses, and good restaurants.
