Welcome to WIS 2016 in Tampere in September 2016!

Every time WIS looks for innovations and new fresh ideas in the cross-section of urban living, information society and health understood in a wide sense. The conference looks for contributions based on high-quality scientific research (research track) as well as on practical experience (industrial track). The seminar is multidisciplinary in nature and gives space for qualitative and quantitative analysis, empirical surveys, case studies and conceptual work. The idea is to enhance information and ideas exchange. For that reason, different interactive forums are part of WIS. WIS is a place for scientists and practitioners to challenge, test and develop their thinking and actions on health enhancement in urban settings.


WIS is organized in connection to the 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion, 18-21 September 2016 in Tampere. Join 2016 and Safety 2016 at discounted price! You can read more under Registration.
