    Event synopsis: The fourth international Community, Work and Family Conference will take place on 19-21 May 2011 at University of Tampere, Finland. The conference will bring together around 200 social scientists and practitioners from a wide range of countries and disciplines. The conference intends to stimulate debate on current issues, controversies, developments and cross-national research related to community, work and family and their interface. The conference focuses on a number of contemporary and emerging themes about the challenges and opportunities for communities, organisations and families that confront rapid changes and transitions, with special focus on the interactions between actors, structures and theories. The international Community, Work and Family Conference is connected to the Journal Community, Work and Family (CWF) published by Taylor & Francis. The journal was founded in 1998 and now has a wide international readership. There is also a growing international community of CWF readers and contributors who regularly meet at the bi-annual conference. The first founding conference was organised by the international editors of CWF, Sue Lewis and Carolyn Kagan, and hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005. The second conference took place in Lisbon, Portugal, 2007 organised by Maria das Dores Guerreiro from CIES-ISCTE. The third conference was organised by Laura den Dulk and hosted by Utrecht University in 2009. The upcoming fourth CWF conference is hosted by the University of Tampere and organised by the Centre for Social Research. The conference site is located in Southern Finland 175 km of Helsinki and it is easily accessible. Click here for more travel information.
