Posted on 22 March 2016 (Permalink)

This year, the third international conference on Well-Being is being held in Birmingham. The conference will explore the multi-dimensions of well-being, focusing on the achievement of well-being through collaboration to co-create experiences which are positive and meaningful to the individual.

Hosted by Birmingham City University on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 September, 2016, Well-being 2016: Co-Creating Pathways to Well-Being aims to provide a platform for dialogue between academics and practitioners, knowledge exchange and methodological exploration through a combination of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and workshops.

The key themes of Well-being 2016 are: 

  • Children’s well-being
  • Nature-based solutions towards well-being
  • The context of the medical humanities
  • Recording, representing and evaluating the positive experience
  • Mentoring for well-being
  • Visioning and future thinking of well-being scenarios

Abstracts are now being invited for posters, papers between 1500 and 3000 words and interactive workshops of 45 – 60 minutes each. Abstracts for all presentation types may be exploratory in nature or consider the findings of existing studies drawn from academia or practice. They need to address issues relating to well-being, particularly regarding new and innovative work, and presented in relation to the type of presentation, the results and their significance.

Authors should provide a clear and brief outline of the paper, including identifying Objectives, Methodology, Results, and Conclusion. For interactive workshops, authors should also explain the activity and the necessary logistics and resources to do so.

Abstracts for all presentation types (250 words) should be submitted through the conference website by 10 April. 

Abstracts and papers will be blind peer reviewed. All papers, posters and workshops will be included in the conference proceedings with an assigned ISBN.

Registration opens on 2 April. For more information visit the Well-being 2016 website.
