IUSSP International Population Conference

About the Conference

Statistics South Africa, on behalf of the Republic of South Africa, will host the 28th International Population Conference of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) in Cape Town, South Africa at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) from 29 October to 4 November 2017.

The IUSSP International Population Conference is a major international event drawing over 2,000 scientists, policy makers and practitioners in the global population community to meet and address issues of common concern.  The Conference takes place once every four years, providing a unique forum for population experts to take stock of recent research on population trends and issues and to debate possible actions and policy responses to the challenges posed by population phenomena.

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.

NAS Sackler Science of Science Communication III Colloquium @ National Academy of Sciences

With so many complex, important, and sometimes uncertain scientific issues facing our society, there has never been a more critical time to communicate effectively. The challenges facing scientists, professional communicators, and the interested public have resulted in a growing area of research—the science of science communication. Evolving from past colloquia, this Colloquium will focus on the consensus study report, Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda, as a framework for advancing both research and practice in science communication. The Colloquium will explore ways to build capacity for and foster the use of evidence-based strategies for engaging the public with science and ensuring its appropriate use. Additionally, this third Colloquium will tackle the tough and often overlooked organizational and infrastructure changes needed to make research-based communication the norm. We expect 550 researchers, practitioners, content experts, and philanthropists to join us at the Colloquium.
