• Following the great success of the first conference of the European Society of Historical Demography (ESHD), which took place from 25 to 27 September 2014 in Alghero (Italy), we are pleased to announce the second ESHD conference, which will take place from 21 to 24 September 2016 in Leuven (Belgium).For this second ESHD conference, we will encourage the participants to be innovative! The conference theme, innovating historical demography: the world and Europe, is aligned with this objective. The two core objectives of the conference are conceptualized: firstly, to highlight the importance of robust methodological and theoretical approaches in the comparative (e.g. regional, temporal and categorical) research framework, and secondly, to promote a better understanding of new quantitative and qualitative research methods.Submissions are made via the online submission system at http://eshd2016.eshd.euDeadline for submissions: 10 January 2016

  • Per portare all’attenzione del grande pubblico la conoscenza e il valore delle scienze statistiche e demografiche nasce per la prima volta in Italia StatisticAll Per saperne di più http://www.festivalstatistica.it Conferenze, dibattiti, forum, session, barcamp, laboratori ed eventi collaterali di intrattenimento per raccontare la statistica e la demografia con un nuovo paradigma e inmodo innovativo e  coinvolgente, con contenuti di grande qualità. Tre giorni in cui la distanza fra scienza e grande pubblico si accorcerà, così da diffondere una migliore percezione della rilevanza del metodo statistico e della scienza demografica. La città scelta è Treviso che ha visto nascere nella sua provincia (precisamente a Motta di Livenza) Corrado Gini, fondatore e preside (dal 1936 al 1954) della Facoltà di Scienze statistiche, demografiche e attuariali di Roma e senza dubbio personalità tra le più eminenti della statistica italiana di ogni tempo. Allo scienziato verrà dedicata l’edizione 2015 del Convegno Annuale della SIS – Società Italiana di Statistica, che richiamerà nella città di Treviso più di 300 studiosi d’Italia e Europa, e che si terrà nella settimana del Festival.Il Festival è stato voluto dalla SIS -Società italiana di Statistica e si avvale della collaborazione dell’Istat, Istituto nazionale di statistica, i quali hanno nella loro mission anche la diffusione della cultura statistica nel nostro Paese. Inoltre il Festival è frutto della collaborazione di molte università italiane e delle relazioni internazionali che gli studiosi hanno con i ricercatori nel mondo.

  • Over the last 160 years, a remarkable decline of fertility has taken place in many Western and Eastern societies. With rapid population aging, current below-replacement fertility looms as a key social issue of the twenty-first century. Intriguingly, substantial regional disparities in fertility levels and reproductive change have been prevalent and remain existent in our world today. A historical reflection on the role of family relations in these processes is extremely valuable. The workshop aims to open up new vistas for understanding population change by combining economic and cultural explanations with theories on family influences and the cultural variation therein. Funding is available for those who are selected to participate, and a selection of papers will be published in a new volume in the Peter Lang Series Population, Family and Society.
      Deadline Call for Papers: 30 April 2015

  • The EDSD is an eleven-month program that is offered every year, with the goal to provide students in the first year of their doctoral studies with an appropriate high-level education in demography.       
    Students will acquire a solid knowledge base on causes and consequences of demographic change, population data, statistical and mathematical demography, as well as modeling, simulation and forecasting. The School’s courses are structured in such a way that the students work on precise formulation of a thesis topic and early steps of their dissertations. The language of the School is English.
     In the upcoming school year the School will be held at two different locations. The preparatory courses (from early September to mid-October 2015) will be offered at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (http://www.demogr.mpg.de) in Rostock, Germany. The core courses (from mid-October 2015 until end of July 2016) will be held at the Department of Methods and Models for Economics, Territory and Finance (http://www.en.memotef.uniroma1.it) as well as the Department of Statistics (http://www.dss.uniroma1.it/it) at the Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
     Successful completion of the School results in a European Research Certificate of Demography provided under the auspices of the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS).
     The EDSD does not charge fees. Several European research institutes and universities provide full fellowships for all students accepted to the program.
     The application deadline is April 15, 2015.
