Be Part of the Conference!

We invite you to be part of the collective energy and submit your proposal to create a 15-minute video presentation that will be featured as on-demand content in our World Conference Library. On-demand content will be available to attendees throughout the conference and for several weeks after the conference has concluded. After that, you may continue to use your video as you desire.

Submit a proposal

You will be asked to create a login username and password. Once you have created your profile, you may use this login information to keep track of the status of your proposal.

Attention Researchers!
If you have interest in sharing your original research through a poster, submission information will be coming soon.


Each year, the IIRP convenes scholars and practitioners to share ideas, learn from one another, and push us forward in our thinking and understanding. In addition to collecting and sharing presentations, the collaboration and relationships developed at these events fuel the restorative movement.

Apply your Conference Experience Toward Graduate Coursework

Following the IIRP World Conference, we offer the opportunity to enhance your experience by adding online coursework. Participation may be applied toward blended graduate course RP 541 IIRP World Conference, which may be the first graduate course you take. The course incorporates related readings, writing assignments and online discussion with fellow participants and IIRP faculty.
