Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts Coming Soon

The XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work will be issuing a call for abstracts starting September 15, 2019. The Congress Programme will be dynamic and interactive, showcasing experts, thought leaders and innovators from around the globe.  

Participants will be invited to submit abstracts to present papers, projects or case studies during Symposia Sessions and/or Poster Presentations. We will be looking for abstracts that directly relate to the Congress theme and topics. 

Congress theme and main topics 

The theme of the 2020 World Congress is Prevention in the Connected Age: Global solutions to achieve safe and healthy work for all. 

The Congress will focus on three main topics:

  • Innovations in Addressing Longstanding Safety and Health Challenges 
  • Implications of the Changing World of Work for Occupational Safety and Health
  • Advancing a Culture of Prevention

How can you contribute your expertise?  

Do you have projects, activities and results that you can present? Do you have case studies, practical tools, innovative ideas and solutions that you can share? Are there individuals or groups that you can collaborate with to submit joint abstracts? 

Now is the time to start thinking about how you can contribute to Prevention in the Connected Age: Global solutions to achieve safe and healthy work for all. Take a look through our first programme announcement that includes a wide variety of symposia topics and see how your work aligns. This is a great opportunity for you to contribute your own experience and stories on topics that are currently most pressing for the occupational safety and health community.  

Timeline for submitting abstracts 

Abstracts can be submitted in English or French between September 15, 2019 and December 15, 2019 and will be reviewed by national scientific advisors. Detailed information on the submission of abstracts will be available on the Congress website in early September 2019.
