Call for abstracts

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”. 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.

Abstract submission

Abstracts will be submitted to the different tracks of the conference. Abstracts must be submitted by the presenting author. The presenting author of accepted abstracts must be registered for the conference to be included in the conference program. Submitting authors are requested to carefully check the entire list of tracks to ensure they submit to the most appropriate track.

Each track will be chaired by two or more track chairs appointed by the Scientific Committee. The track chairs will assess the submissions within their tracks. The Scientific Committee has the final decision on the inclusion of abstracts and on the final presentation format and time.

Deadline for the abstract submission is February 14th, 2017. February 21st, 2017 (final).
