1. European Doctoral School of Demography: Call for Applications
At the previous meeting of the Working Group on Late Fertility and its Implications that was held in Paris in collaboration with INED-INSERM, the group examined the possible effects of late parenthood on risks of failure to conceive, for pregnancy outcome, and for the foetus and the newborn. A revised version of the papers has been published as a special issue of the journal Epidemiology and Public Health.
On behalf of the The European Association for Population Studies Working Group on Mortality and Morbidity, and the local organising committee in Rome, we are pleased to announce a workshop on “Individual, area and group variation in morbidity and mortality”, to be held Monday 17th September – Wednesday 19th September 2007.
