12th Conference of Young Demographers

Feb 03

On behalf of the Young Demographers and the Department of Demography and Geodemography (Charles University, Faculty of Science) we would like to invite you to the 12th Conference of Young Demographers.

The conference is planned for three days (3rd to 5th February 2021) and will take place at the Faculty of Science, Charles University, Albertov 6, Prague 2. All participants will have the possibility to present their current research and discuss it with colleagues from other countries and fields. Although the conference is focused mainly on Ph.D. students of demography, all young (or a bit older) researchers from various fields of population studies are welcomed. The working language of the conference is English.

It is our pleasure to announce that Dr. Mariona Lozano Riera and Dr. José Manuel Aburto will give key-note lectures. Mairona has her PhD in sociology and she works as a researcher in CED UAB. Her research focuses on the labour market and women‘s position in it. José Manuel finished his PhD at SDU in February 2020 and he is currently working at LCDS at University of Oxford. His work concerns lifespan and life-expectancy inequalities using methods of mathematical demography.

Following previous years’ successes a workshop will be included in the conference program. The workshop will be organized by Ilya Kashnitsky, fellow PhD at University of Groningen and a researcher at CPop SDU.

If you are interested in participating, please submit the title of your proposed presentation, a short abstract in English (maximum 250 words) and 3–5 keywords via submission form before the 30 October 2020. You will be informed about acceptance before the end of December 2020. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any financial support for your transport and other expenditures, however, there is no conference fee.

Covid-19 information:

Despite the current epidemiological situation in the world, we are still hoping the whole conference will be possible to be held on-site as we believe in the magic of offline communication. However, we are aware that the situation can change every day and we are monitoring it closely. We will do our best to follow all the measures given by the Czech government and ensure you can join the conference without worrying about your health. In case the odds will not be in our favour, we are ready to move the conference to either hybrid or virtual version.

For more information please visit our website.

Program is subject to change.

In case of any questions please feel free to contact us.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee

Anna Altová, Klára Hulíková, Barbora Janáková, Olga Kurtinová, Kateřina Maláková and Jitka Slabá
