As the 10th biennial meeting of the ISTP, this anniversary conference aims to constitute a facilitating platform for reflections and forward-looking discussions in all important areas in theoretical psychology. Therefore, no particular main theme has been selected by the academic committee for the conference. As rapid transformations of our world, due in particular to globalization and particularization processes, for example, call upon theoretical psychologists for novel and socially relevant understandings, contributions on topics of interest advancing that aim are especially encouraged. These topics include, but are not limited to, cultural critiques; feminist critiques; gender and globalization; metatheoretical reflections; new agendas for the 21st century; politics of psychological knowledge; psychological theory and social practice in complex societies; psychology and interdisciplinarity; sociohistorical insights; and understanding and dealing with diversity. The participation will be in the form of keynote addresses; invited panels; symposia; interactive, thematic paper and poster sessions; and a special event. The site of the 2003 conference is at the crossroads of many cultural, sociopolitical and religious worlds. We expect colorful and productive dialogues between the colleagues from all around the world.
