Event date(s): 13 July 2025 to 18 July 2025

The IUSSP International Population Conference is the world’s largest international scientific conference on population issues. First organized in 1927 and held every four years since 1959, the conference brings together scientists, policymakers and practitioners from around the globe to present and discuss the latest research on contemporary population and development issues. At the invitation of the Australian Population Association, the 30th International Population Conference (IPC2025) will take place in Brisbane, Australia at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) from 13 to 18 July 2025. IPC 2025 will be an in-person conference.

The Conference is open to all members of the population community and those interested in population matters working in research, teaching, governmental and non-governmental organisations, as well as the private sector including publishing companies and the media. All researchers and population specialists are warmly invited to submit paper or poster proposals and to plan on attending this event. Presentations in oral and poster sessions will be selected through a peer-review submission process.

Website opens for submission of paper and poster abstracts: 1 May 2024

Deadline for submission of paper and poster abstracts: 15 September 2024

Pathways Europe 2024: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference (Palacio de Congresos de Córdoba)
Event date(s): 13 October 2024 to 16 October 2024

This year’s conference theme is “Revisiting What is Wild for Coexisting,” is organized by the Institute for Advanced Social Studies - Spanish Research Council (IESA-CSIC), the University of Córdoba, and the Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources at Colorado State University. The conference will be held at Palacio de Congresos de Córdoba, in Córdoba, Spain, from 13-16 October 2024.

The concept of “wild” often refers to elements of nature that remain untamed and unaltered by human intervention. Some argue that in today’s interconnected world, true wild, untouched by human influence, is exceedingly rare or perhaps even nonexistent. In this human-dominated era, in the Anthropocene, new challenges and new debates arise in what is wild as well as what is natural.  

For additional information about the theme, see https://sites.warnercnr.colostate.edu/pathways-europe/theme/

Interested in Submitting a Proposal?  For those who are ready to submit their individual abstract or organized session proposal, organizers are currently accepting submissions. The main conference theme is "Revisiting What Is Wild for Coexisting" and will feature various topics of interest, which you can find online.

Organized session deadline: 12 March 2024

Individual abstract deadline: 12 April 2024

Call for papers - ECMN Second Annual Conference, Environmental Changes and Migration: Bridging Disciplines for a New Research Agenda
Event date(s): 09 July 2024 to 12 July 2024

This conference seeks to gather researchers from all disciplines, all continents and all career stages around topics pertaining to the interactions between environmental changes and migration. This conference aims to be the largest and most inclusive conference ever addressing this topic. It will also serve as a bridge with policy-makers and other research networks, so that the whole research and policy community on climate (im)mobilities is gathered at this event, which will also feature mentoring sessions and social networking activities. Twelve years after the publication of the Foresight report, where do we stand as a research community? What have been the progress, the new avenues for research, and what are the remaining blindspots?

Organizers invite submissions of from all relevant disciplines and fields on the variety of themes related to the topic (diverse mobilities and immobilities in the context of environmental and climate change; diversity of environmental and climatic events and change processes; the role of socio-economic, socio-cultural and socio-political processes for (im)mobilities; the range of methodological approaches and advancements; relevant policy processes, their implications and ways to question how science policy divide can be bridged).

The event will thus consist of a variety of formats:
•    Keynote interventions on the state of the art of diverse research communities
•    Contributions from participants on their research and field of action
•    Interactive workshops on mapping the research landscape
•    Social events for networking and community-building

Registration and abstract (max. 250 words) deadline by 9 February 2024.

Participation without contribution: Participants without their own contribution are also highly welcome. Please register until 15 May 2024.

Fees: 150 euros

Call for Participant Applications - Climate, Aging, and Health in Rural America: An Interdisciplinary Mini-Conference & Workshop (CU Population Center, University of Colorado Boulder)
Event date(s): 11 April 2024 to 12 April 2024

Climate change is influencing human health and is particularly challenging for older adults. In terms of these climate-health connections, rural America is characterized by distinct vulnerabilities, including a relatively older population and far more challenging access to health care and other necessary services. At the same time, extreme environmental events – hurricanes, floods, tornadoes – are rapidly increasing in frequency and severity with projections of further intensification. Amid climate-related health impacts, many rural communities continue to age.

The complex connections between Aging-Climate-Health in rural America requires new and innovative research attention. This workshop brings together researchers in these topical areas with the objectives of reviewing current research, identifying knowledge gaps, and building collaborations. Importantly, there are few scholars already investigating this three-way intersection – we seek participation from aging, health, and/or rural researchers with interest in expanding their portfolio to climate-related questions.

During this 2-day conference, Day 1 will open with keynote speakers reviewing innovations, challenges, and needs in rural America with an emphasis on patterns of aging, climate-related stressors, and health. Following, research panels, flash talks, and a poster reception will provide important empirical examples. Time will also be offered for brainstorming within topically focused working groups aimed to build collaborations, discuss broad research agenda, explore dissemination, and/or work toward high-impact scientific publications and proposals. There will also be a ½ day remote, follow-up meeting several weeks after the conference to reconnect, discuss progress, and share opportunities.

Brief applications are required to ensure adequate space and to identify key thematic areas for working groups.

Some funds are available to support travel expenses. In your application, please include your CV and 1-page on your interest in the mini-conference including its relation to your research agenda or interests. If interested in presenting your research, please also include an extended abstract (no more than 1 page). Also please note if funding is required. Participants and presenters will be selected based on research alignment with conference objectives and quality of abstract. Attention will also be paid to achieving diversity of representation by discipline, geography, career stage, and socio-demographics.

Submit materials by 31 January 2024.
