CFP - 10th Demographic Conference of "Young Demographers". Actual Demographic Research of Young Demographers (not only) in Europe

Submission deadline: 14 November 2018

The Department of Demography and Geodemography and the Geographical Institute (Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science) would like to invite participants to the 10th Demographic Conference of Young Demographers called traditionally “Actual Demographic Research of Young Demographers (not only) in Europe”.

The conference is planned for two days (7th and 8th February 2019) and will take place at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague, Albertov 6, Prague 2. All participants will have the possibility to present their actual research and discuss it with colleagues from other countries or fields of study. Although the conference is focused mostly on Ph.D. students of Demography, all young (or a bit older) researches (not only demographers – a section for nondemographers is planned) will be welcomed. The working language will be English and except for a few online posters all presentations are expected to be in oral form. At least one section will be devoted to presentations of research based on usage of the SAS software. The SAS Institute of the Czech Republic and the Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, partners of the conference, will award a prize of the best presentation using the SAS software or the best presentation with social context. On the 6th February 2019, workshop on current research and modern methods in historical demography will be organized in cooperation with Association for Young Historical Demographers. The workshop capacity is limited. The workshop program will be specified during the October 2018.
 
If interested in participating, please submit the title of the proposed presentation, a short abstract in English (maximum 250 words) and 3–5 keywords via registration form (the link could be found on the  website http://www.demografove.estranky.cz/en/) before the 14th November 2018. Participants will be informed about the acceptance before the 14th December 2018.

There is neither any foundation of your transport and living expenditures nor we can offer you any financial support.

CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR) Seminar Series

Event date(s): 02 November 2018

The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR), in collaboration with the Population Council, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University, and the UN Population Division invite you to the next presentation of the Population Dynamics and Environmental Change Seminar Series: "Considering the linkages between climate and health: A focus on women’s and children’s health in sub-Saharan Africa".

Kathryn Grace, Associate Professor; University of Minnesota, Department of Geography, Environment and Society, will discuss results from recent studies of health, food and climate in sub-Saharan Africa. Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data, very high remotely sensed imagery, and other remotely sensed data relating to geophysical characteristics is used to examine the impact of local environmental context on birth weight outcomes.

Location:

Special Issue of Population and Environment: Combining Remotely Sensed and Demographic Data to Investigate Population Processes

Submission deadline: 31 October 2018

In 1998, The National Academy of Sciences published People and Pixels, highlighting new approaches for integrating satellite-based remote sensing into key population-environment research areas.  Now, twenty years later, the increased availability of remotely sensed data and georeferenced population data has expanded empirical research on population-environment interactions and the potential for theoretical and methodological contributions to the field. 

For this special issue, we seek a range of empirical papers that examine the uses and applications of remotely sensed data in population research, particularly in population research using standard demographic data, that is, from household-level survey, census or demographic surveillance data.  We are primarily interested in research that combines remotely sensed data with population data to carefully and deliberately address the temporal and spatial complexities that accompany this type of analysis, or which demonstrate the value added of using satellite data to address demographic questions. Contributions at any geographic scale are welcome. Papers may include considerations of gender, social inequalities, environmental security, food security, land use land-cover change, and climate-change, among other social and environmental processes and characteristics.

More generally, the research should improve broader understanding, theory and methods regarding the association between population and environment and strategies for dealing with complex and diverse data. We encourage contributions based on quantitative as well as qualitative data, as well as those that focus on policy dimensions. Submissions will be reviewed by social science and remote-sensing/environmental data science experts.

Submission Deadline: 31 October 2018. Please submit questions prior to this deadline to Kathryn Grace or Deborah Balk, Editors of the special issue. Submitted manuscripts should be formatted in accordance with Population and Environment guidelines available in the journal or at www.springer.com. Manuscripts should be uploaded to the journal’s website and authors should select the Special Issue: Remote data. For more information visit: https://link.springer.com/journal/11111.

 

5th International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands

Submission deadline: 31 October 2018

IC2UHI 2019 organizing team would like to inform you that the deadline for the abstract submission has been extended to 31 October, 2018.

Submit abstract here (http://openconf.heatislandcountermeasures.org/openconf.php)

The Fifth International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (IC2UHI), will be devoted to the science, engineering and public policies to help relieve the excess heat and air pollution in urban environments. It has long been recognized that the excessive heat and smog in many cities, the "Urban Heat Island" (UHI), is partly due to the choices of building materials, vegetation and urban design. Scientists, engineers, builders, architects, and government officials concerned with improving the urban environment are urged to participate in the 5th IC2UHI.

Important Dates for the Conference:

New Abstract Deadline     31 October 2018
Abstract  Acceptance       30 November 2018
Draft Full Paper              30 April 2019
Return Review               15 July 2019

Series of Lectures by Roger Zetter

Posted: 29 October 2018

The Hugo Observatory at the University of Liège (Belgium) will host Professor Roger Zetter (University of Oxford, UK) in Liège for a series of four lectures on environmental migration during the 2018 Fall Semester.

This appointment takes place within the framework of the Environmental Diplomacy and Geopolitics (EDGE) project, a EU-funded project implemented under the Horizon 2020 programme by the University of Liège, the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA) and Sciences Po Paris. Part of this project’s planned activities include the hosting of a rotating Chair in Environmental Diplomacy by each partner institution. Professor Clive Hamilton (Charles Sturt University, Australia) has served as the first EDGE Chair, followed by Dr. Alex de Sherbinin (Columbia University, USA). Professor Zetter will then take over as the last rotating Chair under the EDGE project.
