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.

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.
Here are some nearby hotel recommendations. For a full listing of options, please refer to your preferred room booking service.
Registration fee is set at €15 for all attendees. Registraiton includes access to the symposium and meals/refreshments. Please register here.
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.
Wellbring Networks wishes to thank its sponsors for their generous support.
