Call for abstracts for 46th IATUR Conference

The call for abstracts for the 46th International Time Use Research Conference taking place in Corfu, Greece on 7-9 October 2024 is open.
Submit your abstract
The conference theme is Novel Perspectives in Time Use Inequalities.

Time-use research has played a pivotal role in increasing the visibility of inequalities in various life domains, including paid and unpaid work, leisure, and health. Recent years have witnessed substantial changes in time allocation, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated changes in working patterns and daily habits. The 46th IATUR conference thus seeks to gather collective insights surrounding the state of time-use inequalities across the world today. Through a series of keynotes and parallel sessions, we hope to gain a better understanding of trends in gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic inequalities in time allocation in various life domains. At the same time, the conference seeks to reflect on advances in methodological and data collection tools and their contribution to the study of time-use allocation.

The conference will host time-use researchers, professionals, and students from around the world on themes related to methodological and substantive issues. These include, but are not limited to:

Cross-national perspectives in time allocation Environmental effects of time-use Evaluation of time-use policies Flexible work, telework, and work-life balance Gender inequalities in time-use Leisure, time poverty, and time pressure Non-standard work, family, and child wellbeing Novel perspectives in time-use inequalities Socio-demographics of time allocation Time-use across the life-course Time-use and health Time-use inequalities in later life Time-use survey design and implementation Use of new technologies for time-use data collection Youth, social media, and welbeing Other All abstracts will undergo a formal peer-review evaluation by the scientific committee.

Please submit your abstract online through the IATUR website. Abstracts should include:
