The conference is multidisciplinary and aimed at scholars and practitioners from Europe and elsewhere of different disciplines. These include, but are not limited to, Psychology, Education, Social Work, Sociology, Public Health, Nursing sciences, Economics, Pediatrics, and Sports.

ENSEC Award 2017

ENSEC grants an award for the best poster presented by a young scholar (student or post-doc) at the conference. This prize is awarded by a jury to the best designed poster presented at the conference. The jury evaluates the quality of the posters based on these criteria: presentation and novelty (i.e., contribution to the aim of ENSEC and the conference). The winner is selected during the conference by the organizing committee and will be announced during the closing session. The winning poster and its author (-s) will be presented on ENSEC's website after the conference.
