Call for Symposia Proposals

IOHA 2020 will be held on October 17–22 in Daegu, South Korea. This 12th meeting will be hosted by the Korea Industrial Hygiene Association.

IOHA 2020—Bridging Gaps in OH Development, Opening New Horizons, is an opportunity to create synergy among occupational health professionals from the academia, industries, research institutes, policy makers, and workers worldwide. It recognizes the border-crossing nature of occupational health and safety.

ISC is currently seeking for symposia proposals.
A symposium provides an opportunity to share specific research issues, problems, or topics from a variety of perspectives. Here, scientific research outcomes, educational contents, case studies, alternative solutions, interpretations, or contrasting points of view on a specific subject or in relation to a common theme may be presented. A symposium is frequently interactive, and a large portion of it may be devoted to a dialog among the presenters and the discussants, questions and discussions among all those present, or a small-group interaction.

Symposia proposals for, but not limited to, the following categories are welcome:

  • Occupational risks assessment- knowns, unknowns, or emerging
  • Occupational risks management
  • Exposure assessment methodologies and applications
  • Occupational health management program
  • Occupational health agenda by industry or job
  • Occupational health ethics/education
  • Occupational safety and health policies
  • Occupational safety
  • Environmental health / community health
  • International cooperation and harmonization activities
  • Others

The International Scientific Committee (ISC), chaired by Prof. Chung Sik Yoon, Seoul National University, will select proposals for a successful IOHA 2020 through blind referral. The selection criteria include the relevance of the topics; the scientific interest of the topics; and the proposers’ ability to share the topics to a broad, multidisciplinary audience. Preference will be given to symposia proposals that cover a topic from several angles and then present different views and opinions over those that simply present the work of the speakers.

The registration fee for symposia organizers will be covered by LOC.
If the registration fee of organizer does not have to be covered, the free registration can be transferred to one of their symposium speakers.
