We would like to invite you to participate in our next, Sixteenth Annual Sydney Symposium of Social Psychology, to be held 12-14th March 2013. These meetings are held every year on a different topic, and bring together leading international researchers in a major field of social psychology (see our website at for details, programs, pictures of past symposia, etc.). These small group meetings have a reputation of being among the most stimulating, enjoyable and fun conferences in our field - feel free to check with any of the past participants (click here for a list)!! The topic of next year's symposium is


The conference seeks to bring together researchers who are interested in motivation and self-control, and the relationship between the two, broadly defined. Our aim is to survey the latest developments in theory and empirical research in this exciting and rapidly developing area. Given your important contribution to this field, we really hope that you will be able to participate. As with all previous Sydney symposia, contributions will be subsequently published in a book form by Psychology Press, New York. Contributions normally present a brief review of a significant area of research emphasizing especially the latest theoretical and empirical developments (the target word length for the eventual chapter is 6000 words, so it is a fairly concise project).
