Alp-Pop 2016

Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland

January 26–29, 2016

 

Call for Papers

(Click here to download a printable version of the call.)

Alp-Pop brings together scholars interested in population issues across several disciplines, including demography, economics, epidemiology, political science, sociology, and psychology. The conference emphasizes empirical rigor and innovation over a given topic or geographical area, and meets the challenges of interdisciplinary and international audiences.

We welcome submissions on all population issues (e.g., population and health, migration, families and the welfare state, population and economic development/institutions, well-being, etc.).

We particularly encourage submissions that take a life-course perspective and/or address social inequalities.

Submissions of original papers or extended abstracts are invited by August 15, 2015, and submitters will be notified of acceptance within a couple of weeks. 

Submissions and inquiries should be addressed via e-mail to: alp.pop@unibocconi.it.

The confirmed Ski-note speakers for the 2016 Conference are Daniel Hamermesh (Royal Holloway—University of London and University of Texas at Austin) and Elizabeth Thomson (SUDA, Stockholm University and University of Wisconsin–Madison).

Alp-Pop scholars confer both formally and informally. A traditional conference program (paper and poster presentations) mixes with group activities in a world-class winter resort. The conference location, Hotel du Golf, is very close to the ski slopes of Villars and was chosen strategically for its proximity to both Geneva and Torino/Milano.

If there is demand, we will also aim to organize childcare. Please indicate in your application if you intend to bring children along to the conference, as well as their ages.

Organizing committee: Arnstein Aassve (Bocconi University), Laura Bernardi (University of Laussanne), Michele Pellizzari (University of Geneva), and Domenico Tabasso (University of Geneva).

Alp-Pop is organized by the Carlo F. Dondena Centre for Research on Social Dynamics and Public Policy at Bocconi University and the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research LIVES: Overcoming vulnerability: Life course perspectives.
