ISQOLS 2021 CONFERENCE
“Quality-of-life and Adaptation in a Virulent World”
VIRTUAL EVENT
AUGUST 2021

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
15 FEBRUARY 2021

Given the uncertainty of the current global pandemic, travel restrictions, and planning challenges the 2021 ISQOLS Annual Conference will be held virtually in August 2021 (specific dates to be announced). The ISQOLS 2021 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness, similar to all of our past, in-person conferences.
The theme of the Conference is “quality-of-life and adaptation in a virulent world”. The world has changed dramatically in the past year. How do we now examine quality-of-life, wellbeing, and happiness? What are the challenges and opportunities for well-being research and policy in the face of a global pandemic? What important work is being carried out to encourage personal, communal, environmental, and social resiliency in a Covid-19 world? We invite researchers, practitioners, students, professionals, faculty, retirees, experts and novices to participate and engage in this virtual event.
  • Paper abstract submissions deadline is 15 February 2021
