Call for Papers EPC 2022

The European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) invites submissions to the European Population Conference 2022 which will be held 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. EPC 2022 will be a hybrid conference where all sessions can be joined onsite or online.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we expect to have a limited number of participants onsite in Groningen. You can indicate whether you are interested to attend the conference onsite when you submit your abstract. More detailed information on the hybrid model will follow in due course.​

At EPC 2022 participants will have to cover their own costs of participation. The organizers regret that no financial support will be available

Deadline for submissions: 1 November 2021

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be made to one of the conference themes, which will be developed into a series of sessions by the Convener.

Because we want your best work, at EPC 2022 only 1 submission as presenting author is allowed. You may co-author other papers or posters. Each submission should include a short Abstract (250 words) and an extended Abstract (2-4 pages describing topic, theoretical focus, data, methods and (expected) findings).

All submissions need to be made via our online system (click yellow button). Authors will be informed about acceptance of their submission by 1 February 2022.
