Dr S. Chastin and Prof G. Cardon are organising this meeting on behalf of DEDIPAC as the satellite meeting to ISBNPA 2015 in Glasgow the 8th and 9th of June 2015. The meeting will bring together epidemiologist, psychologist, clinicians, economist, rehabilitation, life, health, behavioural and social scientists to discuss the interaction between biological, psychological, sociological, economic, ecological, and socio-economic factors that determine sedentary behaviour.

Experts will be invited and in depth multidisciplinary discussions will be held on; how these mechanisms change over the life course, how these factors and their interactions differ between social and ethnic groups and what are the right targets for actions at multiple levels. The conference objective is to finalise a transdisciplinary consensus framework for research on determinants of sedentary behaviour across the life course. The meeting will be held as part of the JPI HDHL European Knowledge Hub on Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity and will follow an interactive Delphi process.
