The Consortium Board of the Generations and Gender Programme, in cooperation with Population Europe and the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, are delighted to announce the 4th GGP User Conference to be held 6-7 July 2017 in Berlin. This international conference aims to bring together researchers working with data from the Generations and Gender Survey and the GGP Contextual Database, and invites them to present and discuss their most recent methodological approaches and empirical findings. The conference provides a forum for exchange of ideas among existing as well as new GGP users, policy makers and the research community at large. Abstracts of papers focusing on – but not limited to - the following topics are welcome:

  • Survey  methods  and  implementation
  • Data  quality  and validation, methodological considerations in studying demographic behaviour
  • Subjective wellbeing  and  demographic  outcomes
  • Labour  market  and  economic  well-being
  • Intergenerational  relationships
  • Grandparenthood, retirement
  • Fertility of subpopulations and different social groups
  • Fertility intentions and their realization
  • Division of (un)paid work
  • Cohabitation, union formation and dissolution
  • Social mobility and inequalities  

The organizers especially encourage the submission of papers using the GGP longitudinal and/or multi-country data as well as the GGP Contextual Data. Papers can be submitted for oral or poster presentation and there will be a prize for the best poster.  There is no fee for the conference but places are limited.

Abstracts should be submitted via this form by 1st February 2017.

Authors will be notified shortly after about the outcome of their submission. Note that a participant can be first author on only one paper or poster. There will also be a one-day methodological training on 5 July (details to be provided soon on the GGP website).
