Due to the current situation regarding covid-19 we are sorry to announce that we have decided to postpone the SWEsrii conference until the autumn. Many of us who attend the conference work in the health care industry and right now every resource is needed. We have therefore decided that it is better to postpone the conference.
We look forward to the conference and hope you all will attend this fall instead! We will get back to you with a new date later on.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to SweSRII – The 11th Swedish Congress on Internet Interventions.
The Congress will be held at “Nya Regionens Hus” in Gothenburg, right next to the central station, on April 23 – 24, 2020. We have invited researchers from Sweden and all over Europe to share their knowledge and experiences on using and developing Internet-based interventions.
There is no conference fee!
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!
The SWEsrii meetings have a long tradition of a small, focused, warm, non-hierarchical, and friendly atmosphere with lots of opportunities for valuable intellectual exchanges among the delegates.
The registration is now open. Click here to register your participation and if you wish to submit an abstract for a presentation:
The program will cover two half days from April 23 to 24. To make it possible for the majority of delegates to travel to the conference on April 23, the main program depends on how many presentations we will have, but roughly it will start on April 23 after lunch, followed by a dinner at Dubbel Dubbel in the evening, at your own cost. The second day will start at early morning and finish at lunch time.
The participation includes free coffee breaks.
Meeting program, presentation abstracts, and practical information is to be announced.
