General info

INTUE organises annual conferences, to facilitate the dissemination of relevant research findings and establishing collaborations between time-use epidemiologists. We strive to provide highly relevant and interesting academic programme and ample time for networking.

The participation in the conferences is not restricted to INTUE members. However, if the number of people interested in attending the conference is greater than the maximum number of participants, INTUE members are prioritised.

We aim to organise the conferences at no or low cost for the participants. For the INTUE 2019 conference, we managed to secure enough external funding so that we did not have to charge participation fees. We will do our best to continue this practice at the future conferences.

We support academic diversity. At our conferences, everyone is given equal opportunity to participate, present, and chair the sessions, regardless of their academic title, stage in the career, country of origin, and mother tongue.

Join us at the next INTUE Conference!
