Call for Papers

Submissions for the 2017 International Population Conference closed on 15 December. We received 4,572 submissions from 131 countries. In the coming weeks, reviewers will evaluate the abstracts and Session Organizers and Theme Conveners will build sessions for the scientific programme, which will be validated by the International Organizing Committee when it meets in April. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 15 April.


Themes and sessions

The Call for papers  contains 19 general themes and over 100 session topics from which an expected total of 240 regular Conference oral or poster sessions will be created.  Population scholars are invited to submit abstracts to the appropriate session or theme. Abstracts, extended abstracts and papers can be submitted in English or French. Session Organisers and Theme Conveners will select papers for presentation at the Conference on the basis of the relevance and merits of the abstracts submitted to the proposed session. Abstracts not fitting a specific session topic should be submitted to the general theme topic. Theme conveners will create sessions based on the number of high quality submissions received.
