General information
The 15th TiSSA Conference of 2017 invites experts from academic social work research, professional fields and policy to discuss their perspective and experiences on the role of social work as a space for dialogue, cooperation and diversity.

Practical information

Pre Phd Conference
The Pre Phd Conference from August 25th to 27th provides a unique opportunity for Phd students who conduct research in the overall field of social services and related social problems to present their results or work in progress. A board of professors of international standing will form a panel to comment on the presentations and will be available for any further guidance. The Pre Phd Conference therefore offers a very valuable and exceptional occasion to engage in comprehense networking with colleagues from other European Countries. Important to emphasise is that the Pre Phd Conference is open for broad topics concerning social work that are not direcly linked to the central topic of this years conference: Social work as a space for dialogue, cooperation and diversity. Presentations will be limited to maximum 20 minutes.
At this moment, the following professors will be part of the 2017 international supervisory panel, which will guide the Phd students and reflect upon their presentations. Please be aware that this list is not yet completed and may be updated due course:
