TWR Network


The second Transdisciplinary Workplace Research conference will be held from the 16th -19th of September 2020 in Weimar, Germany, in cooperation with Bauhaus-Universität Weimar as our local university partner.

During the TWR2020 conference days you will alternate between plenary and parallel sessions filled with presentations on the latest workplace related studies, from scientists and/or practitioners with diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Additionally, there will be ‘unconference’ sessions to get to know other researchers and interact, such as transdisciplinary speed-working-events, joint brainstorms and of course regular networking breaks.

The TWR network  warmly invites both academic and professional researchers to submit an abstract before Friday November 15th 2019 through and join us in Weimar for TWR 2020.

All presenters are expected to submit a short paper (approximately 3000 words, excluding references) if their abstract is accepted. The short papers will be reviewed by our scientific committee and published in proceedings made available at the conference and open source online.  All short papers will be presented during the conference in parallel sessions.

Important dates:

International and national flights arrive through Frankfurt main airport (see for connections).


Registration fees

Online registration will open after the abstract review process.
