To mark the fiftieth anniversary of demography at UCL, the 2013 Quetelet Seminar will focus on changes in the field of demography over the past 50 years and in the coming 50 years. The Seminar will be an opportunity for critical assessment of the tools, themes and paradigms of our discipline by revisiting the recent past, but also to imagine the future realistically and perhaps even utopically.
Presentations will focus on transformations, past or future, within the discipline and to the challenges of demography, on any the following topics:
A seminar in Barcelona
Post-Transitional Fertility in Developing Countries: Causes and Implications
Stalls, resistances and reversals in demographic transitions

The EAPS Working Group on Differentials in Health, Morbidity and Mortality in Europe organised its fifth seminar in Pontignano, Italy. The seminar was arranged in collaboration with the Università degli Studi di Siena, the Facoltà di Scienze Politiche and Dipartimento di Studi Aziendali e Sociali (Prof.ssa Cinzia Buccianti). The purpose of the seminar was to discuss problems dealing with the analysis and explanation of trends in differentials in health, morbidity and mortality.
This seminar was organized by the IUSSP Committee on Gender and population in collaboration with ISTAT (Italian National Statistical Institute) and the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ under the auspices of EAPS. The aim of the Seminar was to examine a) women's changing position and participation in the labour market in the context of major economic and labour market changes, b) how demographic conditions favour or hinder these changes in the labour market, and c) the demographic consequences of these major economic and labour market changes.
The University of Sassari and the Italian, French and Spanish Societies for Historical Demography (Università degli Studi di Sassari, Società Italiana di Demografia Storica, Société de Démographie Historique, and Asociación de Demografía Histórica) jointly organized an international seminar on Health and disease in the Mediterranean European countries between the 18th and 20th century.
