TiSSA Plenum
The TiSSA Plenum is the annual meeting of academics and professionals from all over the world. Based on the constitutive aims and perspectives, each Plenum deals with one central issue for contemporary social work on a global scale. Plenary sessions, panel debates and working groups excite serious but lively discussions. Field visits and the social program allow to forge closer links to the colleagues. The Plenum is borne by the inquisitiveness and engagement of the participants, which realize each program by their papers and statements and vitalize the idea of a cross-national network of social professions.

News about Pre-PhD Conference
The Pre-PhD Confernce from August 19 to 21 provides a unique opportunity for PhD students who conduct research in the overall field of social services and related social problems to present their results or work in progress. A board of professors of international standing from a variety of countries will form a panel to comment on the presentations and will be available for any further guidance. The Pre-PhD Conference therefore offers a very valuable and expectional occasion to engage in comprehensive networking with colleagues from other European countries. Important to emphasise is that the Pre-PhD Conference is open for broad topics concerning social work and is not so much directly linked to the central topic of this years conference: Social Work as a Forum for Democracy.
