On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to SWEsrii. This is the 9th Swedish Congress on internet interventions (old “NIFFIT”). The Congress will be held at the department of Psychology at Linköping University on November 3, 2017. We have invited researchers from Sweden and all over Europe to share their knowledge and experiences on using and developing Internet-based interventions. The aim of our conference is to contribute to the development and dissemination of best possible psychological interventions to help people in need. Most congress delegates will be Swedes, but everyone is welcome! We have a maximum of 120 attendees. This will ensure a warm and friendly atmosphere with lots of opportunities for valuable intellectual exchanges among the delegates.
THERE IS NO CONFERENCE FEE!
