Dublin Conference


The Scientific Committee is no longer accepting abstracts. Authors of submitted abstracts will be informed of the Committee's decision by early June 2006.


The Academy conference series that began in 1999 in Sweden as a small gathering of individuals with an active interest in the emerging field of occupational health psychology has, year on year, grown in size and scope, while the field itself has likewise evolved at a rapid rate. Dublin 2006 is predicted to be the largest and widest ranging Academy conference to date, attracting scientific contributions addressing all areas of occupational health psychology. The last Academy conference, Porto 2004, attracted delegates from 30 countries; Dublin 2006 promises to expand on that number, creating a truly international conference that offers a global perspective on research, practice and education in occupational health psychology.

Confirmed keynote presentations include Maureen Dollard (University of South Australia) and Norbert Semmer (University of Bern, Switzerland); both, eminent researchers in and advocates of applied psychology.

The 7th full conference of the Academy will take place at Dublin Castle, Dublin, Ireland, 8-10 November 2006. Conference preparations have got off to a tremendous start with the news that the Irish Health & Safety Authority is to sponsor the conference through its provision of Dublin Castle as a conference venue. The modern, purpose-built, International Conference Centre was constructed behind the fa├žade of the north-east corner of the Upper Castle Yard for Ireland's Presidency of the European Union in 1990. Built to service meetings of world leaders, the conference centre boasts state of the art IT and audio/visual facilities and has been furnished to 'create a calm and tranquil atmosphere during working sessions'.

Dublin Castle is situated in the very heart of Dublin city within easy walking distance of a range of hotels to suit every budget. Once in Dublin there is no need for public transport; all primary attractions are located within a contained geographical area. A full and exciting social programme is being put together. The conference committee is currently in negotiations with a number of famous Irish brands, with a view to creating a memorable social, as well as intellectual, meeting.

EA-OHP Conferences

The European Academy has operated a full conference annually since inception. Conferences have been held in Lund, Sweden (1999), Nottingham, England (2000), Barcelona, Spain (2001), Vienna, Austria (2002), Berlin, Germany (2003), Oporto, Portugal (2004).

At the 2004 Annual Business Meeting a resolution was passed to adopt an biennial conference model. The next full conference will take place towards the end of 2006. The rationale behind this resolution is to encourage regional workshops, symposia and mini-conferences in the 'fallow' year tailored to current pertinent themes and organised at a local level by Academy members under the auspices of the Academy. Academy members interested in organising local events are encouraged to contact the Academy Executive Officer, Jonathan Houdmont, to discuss ideas.
