International Symposiumon Work in Agriculture_ISWA - Clermont-Ferrand - New dates : March 29th - April 1rst, 2021



                      Clermont-Ferrand, France
2nd Symposium on Work in Agriculture - ISWA 2021
                      March 29th - April 1rst, 2021       


The 2nd ISWA is going to a virtual Symposium !

Because many people may not be able to travel as a result of the pandemic Covid 19 or of its economic impact, the 2nd ISWA Symposium on Work in Agriculture is going to a totally virtual Symposium. Making the Symposium more accessible helps our underlying mission to elaborate and advance in multidisciplinary approaches on work in agriculture and to expand our capacity of thinking the future of work. 

Going to totally virtual is a radical change. We loose the advantages of direct relationships, of direct professional interactions and networking. The participants won’t discover the nice landscapes of Auvergne, the old city of Clermont Ferrand and won’t have the opportunity to visit french farms. The good news are i) that we can hope to reach to a larger audience and ii) that the virtual conference will be very close to the technical content we scheduled, the sessions being adapted in order to favor interactions (during and after) and to shorten their duration. The workshops will undergo with the same contents of oral presentations, posters and interactive discussions. The round table and the tool bazaar will be maintained as well. 

 Registration will still be compulsory to access to the Symposium, and will offer the possibility of a reserved access to the papers and posters before and after the Symposium dates. Registration will open in 2021.

Welcome to the ISWA 2021 Symposium !
Thinking the future of work in agriculture

1.3 billion people work in agriculture. Work in agriculture faces continuities but also tremendous changes. Are sufficient knowledge, useful frameworks and operational tools provided to follow up the changes of work in a sustainable way ? Are the various dimensions of work (employment, health, organization…) connected to build prospects for decent work in the future ? read more
