2021 International Population Conference (IPC2021)

Conference date(s): 05 December 2021 - 10 December 2021

The IUSSP organizes the International Population Conference once every four years in a different country, in collaboration with a host country institution. This major international event draws some 2,000 population scholars, policy makers, and government officials from around the world to discuss the latest population research and debate pressing global and regional population issues.

IUSSP warmly invites all those working in population and related fields to submit an abstract of recent research for presentation in an oral or poster session. We strongly encourage abstracts on all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic across the 25 themes that structure the scientific programme. We also welcome submissions that deal with inequality, discrimination, and the differential vulnerability or resilience of specific groups that affect human welfare through population processes – a topic of importance to studying the impacts of COVID-19 and persistent inequalities.

We expect that IPC 2021 will be an on-site conference. Because of the pandemic, we are considering other options, including a virtual event, if necessary.

All abstracts must be submitted online via the IPC2021 website, which will open for submissions on 1 November 2020. Individuals can submit no more than 2 abstracts. 

The deadline for submissions is 15 February 2021.

Call for papers: International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health - Environmental Health

Submission deadline: 28 February 2021

Guest Editor: Barbara Schumann (Department of Epidemiology and Global Health, Umeå University, Sweden)

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) has a call for papers in a special issue titled “Climate and Environmental Change Impacts on Health and Health Care—The Context of Food Insecurity, Conflict and Forced Migration”. 

Environmental hazards due to climate change and other anthropogenic processes pose severe challenges for human health and health care systems. These hazards include droughts, flooding, sea level rise, storms, salinization, land degradation, and deforestation, among others, and often affect the most vulnerable populations. People’s health is at risk due to climate-driven violent conflicts and food insecurity, which are both drivers of voluntary and forced migration. In some regions, such as the Greater Horn of Africa, the scale of forced displacement is substantial, overburdening the displaced, host communities, aid organizations, and governments. The public health implications of the climate–food shortage–conflict–migration nexus are, however, still not well understood.

This Special Issue welcomes original and review articles that address health issues related to environmental and climate-induced violent conflict, food insecurity, and migration.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2021.
