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. Submissions are particularly welcome on topics concerning: population, families, and the welfare state; population and economic development/institutions; finance and population issues. 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. Read the full announcement.
