The aim of WINC is to support scientific networking on the area of working hours research and to update the scientists to the latest research on the area of working hours, health and well-being. The 8th WINC annual symposium will be organized 19th May 2022 (9 am – 4 pm) in Helsinki, and it will include plenary lectures, oral presentations and posters on working hours research intended to scientists on the area. It is possible to join the symposium also virtually, but we strongly recommend physical participation to support proper networking!

WINC steering group (see details here) will inform on the details of submittance of abstracts to the WINC symposium later this year in this web-page. We will send you an e-mail on this if you have registered (see the registration link below). The dead-line of the abstracts will be 1st February 2022 and the WINC steering group will inform you on the acceptance of the abstracts and/or poster presentations by 1st March 2022.

The symposium will start with a networking dinner in Helsinki City on 18th May at 7 pm (not free of charge), and the Symposium will be organized in Folkhälsan, Topeliuksenkatu 20, Helsinki, close to FIOH on 19th May. The symposium itself does not include a registration fee, but the participants thus need to cover all their other costs excluding the lunch and coffee during the symposium day.
