IFSW Europe: Call for Abstracts for IFSW European Conference in Reykjavík, Iceland 28-30 May 2017

  • 01 Apr 2016

The IFSW European Conference 2017 will be held in Iceland on the 28th to the 30th of May 2017 and the theme is:

Marginalization and Social Work in a Changing Society.

The Programme Committee with members from IFSW Europe executive and the Icelandic Association of Social Workers has decided to use a similar approach to the call for abstracts as for the IFSW European Conference in 2015:

We ask member Associations of IFSW Europe to advertise for and nominate the five best abstracts proposals from their countries and submit the abstracts to the programme committee in Iceland, before 1st of June 2016.

It is important that the workshops and presentations have a strong focus on the theme of the conference, i.e. Marginalization in a changing society. 

It is possible to submit an abstract for:

  • Workshop up to one hour.
  • Presentation of 15 minutes and 5 minutes discussion.
  • Posters. 

Deadline is the 1st of June 2016.

We hope that your participation in selecting the workshops and presentations will ensure we have a quality programme. We think that you know the social workers doing interesting and innovative work. 

Please send all abstracts before 1st of June 2016 to the conference and we ask you to fill out the form attached. If you have any questions you can also send queries to the same email address.

All participants in the Conference, including presenters, have to registrate for the Conference.

You can find all information on this website:

We are looking forward to meeting you in Iceland in May 2017.
