Wittgenstein Centre at the PAA Annual Meeting 2015

The Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America (PAA) provides a forum for demographers, sociologists, economists, public health professionals, and other individuals interested in research and education in the field of population. In 2015 the conference is taking place between 28 April-3 May in San Diego, USA.

Researchers from The Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital will present and discuss new research in presentations and poster sessions at this important event and will function as session chairs.

In addition, the United Nations Population Division in collaboration with the Wittgenstein Centre is organizing an invited session on "World population projections: Comparison and discussion of alternative approaches". The session will compare the most recent population projections by the Wittgenstein Centre to those of the United Nations. It will be chaired by Jane Menken, Director of the Institute of Behavioral Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, and will include presentations by UN Population Division Director John R. Wilmoth and Wittgenstein Centre Founding Director Wolfgang Lutz, followed by a discussion with Michael Teitelbaum, Harvard Law School, and Brian O'Neill, National Center for Atmospheric Research. Session 72 will take place on Thursday, April 30, 2:45 PM - 4:15 PM.

Furthermore, the Wittgenstein Centre will host a member-initiated meeting on "Human Fertility Database: Expanding research opportunities" on Wednesday April 29, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM in room Aqua E.

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.
