7th Alpine Population Conference (Alp-Pop 2017) in La Thuile, Aosta Valley, Italy

7th Alpine Population Conference (Alp-Pop 2017) in La Thuile, Aosta Valley, Italy

Alp-Pop brings together scholars interested in population issues across several disciplines. For its 7th edition, which will take place from January 15 to 18, 2017, the organisers from the Dondena Centre for Research on Social Dynamics of University Bocconi (I) and the NCCR LIVES are launching a call for papers on issues like health, migration, families, the welfare state, economic development, institutions, well-being.

The confirmed Ski-note speakers for the 2017 Alp-Pop Conference are Prof. Hans-Peter Kohler (University of Pennsylvania) and Prof. Alberto Palloni (University of Wisconsin).

Alp-Pop scholars confer both formally and informally. A traditional conference program (paper and poster presentations) mixes with group activities in a world-class winter resort. The conference location, the Hotel Planibel in La Thuile (Aosta Valley), is next to the ski-slopes, and is in close proximity to the airports of Geneva and Torino/Milano.

Scope

The organisers -  the Dondena Centre for Research on Social Dynamics of University Bocconi (Italy) and the NCCR LIVES - welcome submissions on all population issues (e.g. health, migration, families, the welfare state, economic development, institutions, well-being, etc.). They particularly encourage submissions that take a life course perspective and/or address social inequalities.

Deadline

Submissions of original papers or extended abstracts are invited by September 10, 2016, and submitters will be notified of acceptance within a couple of weeks.

Submissions and inquiries should be addressed via email to: alp.pop@unibocconi.it
