17 May 2010 4:14 AM | Deleted user
We are delighted to invite you to participate in the 20th International Symposium of the Working Time Society, which will be held in Stockholm, Sweden from 28 June to 1 July 2011.

The theme of the symposium is “biological mechanisms and risk management in the 24h society” and includes state of the art topics such as “shift work and health risks”, “biological mechanisms related to work-related sleep and sleepiness problems”, “fatigue risk management”, “flexible working hours” and many other research questions related to working times. The scientific program consists of keynote lectures, special sessions, oral presentations and poster sessions. The symposium will also keep in line with the tradition of previous WTS meetings offering rich possibilities for social interactions and informal research discussions.

The symposium will include several activities supporting young scientists, a Trainee day, to be held on the 27th of June, Grants/Travel Awards for trainees in order to help support them to attend the congress, and Trainee Merit Awards, based on abstracts, posters and oral presentations.

It remains to be seen whether the (almost) midnight sun also has a positive effect on the scientific spirit of the symposium (although you might sleep less than normal)! We look forward to seeing you there!
