European Population Conference

The European Population Conference (EPC) is the hallmark event of EAPS and a leading scientific gathering in our field. Experts from a wide range of disciplines as well as from the policy and stakeholders communities discuss the latest developments in population research, population trends and dynamics as well as their causes and implications. EPC convenes every two years in a different European city.

The next European Population Conference will take place from 29 June - 2 July 2022. EPC 2022 is organized by EAPS in collaboration with the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) and the University of Groningen.
We hope to welcome you in Groningen, The Netherlands, but hybid and virtual options for EPC 2022 are being considered as well, depending on how the covid-19 pandemic evolves. We will keep you posted!
