Call for Papers: Time Use Data for Health and Well Being

June 22-23, 2020 at University of Maryland-College Park

Time is one of the most valuable and contested resources in contemporary societies. Analysis of variation in daily time use patterns over time, space, and social groups is needed to advance understanding of determinants and consequences of time use for well-being. The 2020 UMD Time Use Conference will give members of the growing interdisciplinary time use research community the opportunity to interact with one another and share ideas.

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for papers that address any question related to the collection or analysis of time use data. Papers that address the 2020 conference theme, intersecting influences of macroeconomic conditions and micro-level factors on time use and well-being across the life course, are particularly encouraged. Registration is open to all individuals with an interest in how patterns of daily time use affect child, adult, and family well-being. Authors are asked to submit: 

1)    A brief abstract (150 words);

2)    A 2-to 3-page extended abstract must be sufficiently detailed to allow the organizing committee to judge the merits of the proposed paper.

The extended abstract must be sufficiently detailed to allow the organizing committee to judge the merits of the proposed paper.

The deadline for submission of paper abstracts is January 31, 2020. Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by March 30, 2020. Abstracts may be submitted by email to: timeuse-2020@umd.eduWebsite: https://www.popcenter.umd.edu/research/sponsored-events/tu2020
