EPC to be hosted in Germany for the first time in 2016
Date 27 Apr 2015
Europe’s largest scientific conference on population studies, the European Population Conference (EPC), will take place in Germany for the first time in 2016. The EPC is convened every two years by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS). In cooperation with the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB), the conference will be hosted on the premises of the University of Mainz from August 31st to September 3rd, 2016. Alongside numerous scientific presentations and panels concerning population research, the conference’s theme of “Demographic Change and Policy Implications” also provides the opportunity to discuss topics relating to policy-making.
The preparations for the conference are in high gear. Recently, EAPS’ board and the Director of the Federal Institute for Population Research, Prof. Dr. Norbert F. Schneider, visited the conference site. The conference’s additional programme, as well as the content of its motto, was also agreed upon. Currently, a conference website is being developed and prepared for launch, and a call for papers has been made.
