Special Features of the Meeting

Coffee Break

A daily coffee break between the plenary address and scientific sessions each morning will include coffee, tea, juice, pastries and fruit.

Grants Workshop

Fri (7/28) 12-2:30 PM

A new feature of the meeting will be a "Grants Workshop" to be held by representatives of National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHHD), National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation. These representatives will review substantive rather than procedural issues, e.g., current areas of funding interest in their respective agencies, what counts as "translational research" in aggression, upcoming PA's and RFA's, what's hot and what's not. This workshop will include a period for audience Q & A. Written material from the Violence Prevention Branch of the Center for Disease Control may also be available.

PLEASE NOTE: Individual half-hour consultations with representatives following the workshop (2:30-5:00 PM) can be pre-arranged before the meeting or through sign-up sheets at the meeting. Interested parties should e-mail Mike Potegal (, indicating the agency representative(s) you would like to meet.

Publishers' Table


The University of Minnesota Bookstore will provide a cross-disciplinary display of recent books on anger and anger management, aggression, conflict and conflict resolution, violence and violence prevention, and associated topics. Some relevant books by ISRA plenary speakers, University of Minnesota faculty and other attendees will also be displayed. A bookstore representative will answer questions and handle sales at a convenient time slot and location each day, Wed thru Friday (e.g., at the Wed PM poster sessions; a schedule of slots and locations will be available at the meeting). At other times, the books can be examined at the publisher ’s table near the meeting rooms. At all times, books can be purchased at a special ISRA meeting display in the bookstore itself in the lower level of the Coffman Union during the summer business hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
