Applied Demography Conference

Applied Demography Conference 2021
February 2 - 4, 2021 | Virtual

Join your fellow applied demographers to share work, strengthen your network, and come together with the entire applied demography community.  The registration deadline is January 29, 2021.

The primary goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for applied demographers to share their work and receive feedback from trusted and respected peers.  Secondarily, this event will serve as a gathering point for the applied demography community to connect with each other.

The conference will be held over three days featuring one plenary or workshop and three concurrent sessions each day.   There will also be networking opportunities available throughout the conference.  

Sessions will all be 75 minutes and either in an oral or flash format.  The oral format includes up to 5 submissions speaking for about 10  minutes each with 25 - 35 minutes of discussion and audience questions.  The flash format includes up to 8 submissions presenting for 5 - 7   minutes each with 25 - 35 minutes of discussion and audience questions.

All submitters will have the opportunity to receive feedback from their peers even if they are not presenting.  Details will be available in early January 2021.
