The Alpine Population Conference 2014

The Alpine Population Conference

La Thuile, Aosta Valley, Italy

January 13-15, 2014

Ski-Note Speakers

Pearl Dykstra, Erasmus University

Marta Tienda, Princeton University

 

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

The Call for Papers is open until November 1, 2013. Details are available here. Inquiries should be addressed via email to: alp.pop@unibocconi.it.

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, the Planibel Hotel, is located on the well-known ski slopes of La Thuile and was chosen strategically for its proximity to both Geneva and Torino/Milano.

Participants are expected to seek their own funding. Special-rate rooms have been reserved at the conference hotel with arrival on January 12 (the conference will kick off that evening) and departure on January 15 (the conference will end that evening). Participants will receive information about how to reach La Thuile and updates about the conference.

 

Alp-Pop is organized by the Carlo F. Dondena Center for Research on Social Dynamics at Bocconi University.
