QUALITY OF LIFE: TOWARDS A BETTER SOCIETY
The International Society for Quality-of-life Studies (ISQOLS) is
holding its 15th Conference from SEPTEMBER 28TH TO 30TH 2017 in the
beautiful city of Innsbruck, Austria. The conference’s theme is
“Quality-of-life: Towards a Better Society”. Over 500 high quality
abstracts have been submitted to the conference.
ISQOLS conferences provide a space for scholars to present their
research findings on quality-of-life, well-being, and happiness, as
well as to discuss their relevance for policy making. ISQOLS gathers
scholars from all corners of the world, from many disciplines, with different
methodological and theoretical perspectives, and following different
approaches, but with one common goal: generating research-based
knowledge to contribute to the well-being in societies.
REGISTER NOW FOR THE PHD BREAKFAST SESSION: SEATS ARE LIMITED!
The International Society for Quality of Life Studies has organized
several Ph.D. workshops or sessions in its history. The first workshop
was held at the conference in Girona, Spain, in 2000, and the last in
Venice, Italy, in 2012. These workshops were evaluated as highly
valuable, both by the involved students as the experts in their field.
This year, a PH.D. BREAKFAST SESSION will be organized at the ISQOLS
conference in Innsbruck, Austria.
The Ph.D. breakfast session will be held on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH in
We invite PH.D. STUDENTS to apply, who are in an advanced stage of
their studies, and who would like to present their work to Faculty
members in the broad Quality of Life area. The session gives you an
opportunity to discuss your work in depth with leading experts in your
specific subject. Another advantage of this breakfast session over
general paper sessions is that 45 MINUTES are dedicated to your work,
instead of the usual 15-20 minutes.
The idea is to have a session in which you present either A RELEVANT
PAPER or (more preliminary) PROJECTS of your Ph.D. study. A selected
group of EXPERTS will be invited to listen to your presentation and
give comments during the session. Extra bonus is the breakfast.
We would like to stress that at this point only one space is available,
so entering this Ph.D. breakfast session is competitive, and may result
in a decline of your proposal for this particular session.
Instructions for submission and presentation
* Please describe which relevant paper or project of your Ph.D. study
you would like to present.
* State the goal(s) of your study and main research questions.
* Describe shortly your research design.
* Summarize your main results or expected results.

discussion, and which type of feedback you would like to receive from
the selected experts.
* Finally also shortly describe why you think this breakfast session
would benefit your work.
* YOUR SUBMISSION MUST NOT EXCEED 1 PAGE AND BE SENT TO: LATEST BY JULY
The presentation itself should not exceed 10-15 minutes, so there will
be 30-35 minutes of time for discussion.
