Mission: The SSO:USA is a research society that strives to build the body of knowledge in occupational science to benefit humanity. The Society invites abstracts of in-progress or completed research, theory, or current issues in the study of occupation, or the activities that occupy our lives. Contributions from all sciences and professions are welcome. Format of the conference emphasizes discussion and networking to enhance research.

An announcement will be sent out when the site is ready to accept abstract submissions, and the link will be posted here on the 2019 conference page. Thank you for your patience as we get the new site ready!
