The International NLP Research Conference

Research Conference Stream 2014

In November 2014, the ANLP Research Conference takes on a slightly different format, by running as a stream within the NLP Conference on Saturday 22nd November.

The idea behind this is for NLP research to be introduced into mainstream NLP and pique the curiosity of NLP Professionals, who will have the opportunity to find out more about NLP Research and attend paper presentations alongside NLP Conference presentations.

The abstracts for the papers which will be presented on the day can be downloaded in PDF format below:

The need for stronger connections between the world of NLP and research is widely recognised. The aim of this third conference was to continue supporting the growing community of inquiry into NLP, for both emerging and established researchers.

The conference was open to anyone in the field of NLP research who wished to share their work and discuss their findings in a supportive environment. Organised by ANLP International in partnership with Hertfordshire University, this event was independent of any NLP training organisation.

The First International NLP Research Conference

The world’s first International Research Conference on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was held at the School of Management in July 2008, chaired by Dr Paul Tosey.

This highly successful event, a partnership with the Association for NLP, was a sell-out. The 70 attendees, a mix of practitioners and academics, included delegates from Sweden, France, Germany, Austria, the USA and Australia. Fourteen universities were represented. The opening keynote speech was given by Charles Faulkner, Visiting Senior Fellow in the Centre for Management Learning.



Participants have praised the event highly:

`A big thank you and congratulations on a wonderfully organized conference. I really enjoyed it.’

`A truly memorable day, full of positive learnings. The energy, enthusiasm and generous sharing of knowledge, was terrific and the sense of momentum for future events was very tangible.’


The second conference was hosted in partnership with Cardiff University in July 2010. Over 15 Universities were represented and the keynote speaker was Frank Bourke, from the USA who talked about the PTSD protocols being developed in the States.
