Well-being: a social networks approach

Wellbeing Networks
Symposium

2-3 September 2019

Dublin, Ireland

We can accept up to 100 attendees

Wellbeing Networks 2019 is an IRC funded symposium/workshop entitled "Well-being: a social networks approach". The event is being hosted by DCU in collaboration with UCC and will take place at All Hallows campus of Dublin City University on Sept 2nd-3rd 2019. The central aims of the symposium are a) to facilitate interdisciplinary networking and research collaboration between researchers who have an interest in social networks and their relationship to health and wellbeing, and b) to foster a vision for interdisciplinary research in this important subject area as a means to advance wellbeing research on a national and international level.

The event will showcase examples of relevant interdisciplinary research on social networks using differing methodologies and/or differing perspectives on health and well-being. Through a series of plenary addresses, panel discussions and participatory workshop activities, attendees will explore the opportunities, benefits and challenges involved in conducting interdisciplinary research in this area. A particular focus will also be on patient and public involvement in interdisciplinary health and wellbeing related research.

This two-day symposium will also support future cross disciplinary collaboration opportunities between researchers who currently, or in the future hope to, investigate health and wellbeing from the perspective of social networks.

THE SCHEDULE

The first workshop (September 2nd) will focus on exploring the interdisciplinary possibilities for research on the impact of social networks on physical and mental well-being. The workshop will begin with a keynote speech from an expert in the area of Social Networks and Wellbeing, Dr Gertraud Stadler (University of Aberdeen, UK). This is followed by a series of short talks from experts in health and well-being research from different disciplinary backgrounds. These short talks will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion led by these expert panel members. The second half of the day will involve attendees actively discussing and exploring research priority areas for interdisciplinary research into the impact of social networks on physical and mental well-being. This will take the form of an "unconference" format, where attendees initially propose and vote on topics for discussion through an online polling system. Attendees will then break into smaller groups to discuss and address these issues. This session will end with a feedback session where each break-out group relays their findings to all attendees.

CALL FOR POSTERS

We are currently seeking submissions for the poster session that will take place during the symposium. The session should be viewed as an opportunity for dissemination and networking around your work, rather than as a publication venue. Thus, we will accept novel work, work that has been previously published, and work in progress. The session will have an intentionally broad scope, and any topic relevant to social networks and their relationship to health and wellbeing will be considered for inclusion.

Posters should include: At least one author must attend the conference to present the poster. Authors will be assigned a time and location to present their poster to conference attendees. Audiovisual and computing equipment will not be supplied. Power outlets will not be available. The participants may include QR codes in the poster to link to supplementary material online (such as scenario videos or interactive prototypes).

VENUE

Wellbring Networks will take place at the All Hallows campus of Dublin City University in Dublin 9, Ireland. All Hallows and it's grounds are simply stunning. The College was founded in 1842 by Reverend John Hand. By 1973, the college had trained 4,000 priests. In 2015 DCU took over the campus and it became part of Dublin City University.
