The II European Conference of the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology (EA-OHP) was held at the University of Lund in November 1999. The Conference will be hosted by the Institute of Work, Health and Organisations in Nottingham, on December 1st & 2nd 2000. The third meeting, an International Congress, will be held in Barcelona, on 25-26 October 2001 and the III European Conference will be held in 2002 in Munich.

The Conference will be held on December 1st & 2nd 2000 at Nottingham’s Rutland Square Hotel in the city centre, adjacent to the Castle, and the Conference Dinner is to be at Hart’s, one of Nottingham’s best restaurants. The City of Nottingham boasts some of the finest restaurants, pubs and theatres and is known as the best provincial shopping centre outside London- a perfect venue for Christmas shopping (open Sunday). Adjacent to the Hotel stands the famous Nottingham Castle, which houses a museum, craft shop and gallery. The city is world-renowned for being the home of the local hero Robin Hood whose tale can be heard in the nearby exhibition centre.
