This major international event draws some 2,000 population scholars, policy makers, and government officials from around the world to discuss the latest population research and debate pressing global and regional population issues.
The Conference will include invited plenary debates and panel discussions on population and sustainable development issues as well as over 240 scientific sessions featuring the results of recent research from around the globe. Sessions will cover a wide range of topics including international migration, sexual and reproductive health, poverty and inequality, population and environment interactions, the consequences of population ageing and issues related to children and youth, education, the labour force, and gender and human rights. There will also be a set of sessions on Population and Policy Challenges in Africa. Attention to advances in methods and data measuring population phenomena and evaluating progress towards health and development goals such as the SDGs will be a key concern cutting across all sessions. In addition, there will be exhibits, side meetings and training sessions.
Submit your abstracts on or before 15 December 2016.
