Call for Papers – One Week to Go

Date 08 Dec 2015

Just one week remains until the submission deadline for the European Population Conference (EPC) ends on December 15th, 2015. The EPC is the biggest demographic conference in Europe and will be held next year in Germany for the first time. The Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB) is hosting the event as the national executive committee.

The next European Population Conference (EPC) will take place in Mainz, Germany, from 31 August until 3 September 2016 und is organised by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) in cooperation with the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB). EPC2016 is a general scientific population conference where the topic "Demographic Change and Policy Implications" will receive special attention.

Submissions should be made to one of the conference themes, which will be developed into a series of sessions by the convener of each theme. Only one submission as a first author is allowed. Participants may, however, co-author other papers or posters. Submissions may take the form of an abstract although full papers are preferred. Authors will be informed about acceptance of their submission by early March 2016.

The conference will discuss current research results from the following 15 topics:

  • Sexual and Reproductive Health
