4 MAY 2021Conferences

The Population Association of America’s annual meeting is a premier conference of demographers and social and health scientists from the United States and abroad. Senior, mid- and early-career demographers present and discuss their research in oral and poster sessions, hear of others’ findings, and network with their peers. In 2021 the conference is taking place between 05-08 May. Researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre will present and discuss new research in presentations and poster sessions at this important event.

The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. In assessing the effects of these forces on long-term human well-being, we combine scientific excellence in a multidisciplinary context with relevance to a global audience. It is a collaboration among the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the University of Vienna.
