The International Advisory Board is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Third International Conference on Health, Wellness and Society and the call for submissions to the peer-reviewed International Journal of Health, Wellness and Society. The Health and Wellness Conference will be held 15 – 16 March 2013 at the Escola Paulista de Medicina – Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This interdisciplinary conference is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share a common concern for learning and an interest to explore issues of concern in the fields of human health and wellness, and in particular their social interconnections and implications. Proposals are invited that address issues of sustainability through one of the following categories:
Theme 1: The Science and Study of Health and Wellness;
Theme 2: Social Contexts of Health Wellness;
Theme 3: Educating for Health.
Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters/exhibits, or colloquia are invited. The current deadline for proposals is 11 October 2012 with the final deadline for late submissions being 8 January 2013. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found at the conference website.
Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International reviewed International Journal of Health, Wellness and Society. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication, as well as access to the journal.
Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.
Participants are invited to submit a proposal for an in-person paper presentation,workshop/interactive session, poster/exhibits session, or a jointly presented colloquium. We also encourage innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues, screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and conference themes.
Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed The International Journal of Health, Wellness and Society. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the journal. All registered conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the journal when registration is finalized. This subscription is valid until one year after the conference end-date.
