Conference

Call for abstract submission

The overall theme of this OSE 2023 conference is “Situated occupation and everyday life towards environmental, economic, social inclusiveness and sustainability."

Start submission 16. November 2022 – End of submission 15. January 2023

The conference gives voice to and invites a range of submissions that consider the relationship between occupation, health and society aiming for inclusion, equality and social transformation by exploring the potential of new and alternative ways of living and by the use of inclusive methodology and partnerships in occupational science research.

As such, this conference will comprise a variety of interdisciplinary and situated occupational science topics of interest to the international occupational science community.

The conference will enable dialogue about complex relations between human occupation, health and society. Society is understood as a social group characterized by people involved in regular social interactions and occupations, sharing a physical or social space, and/or organized by common political and cultural expectations.

We invite contributions from all those interested in the conference theme and the discipline of occupational science. Submissions may be theoretical, educational, or research based.
