The Giornate di Studio sulla Popolazione (Population Days), held every two years, is one of the most important initiatives of the Italian Association for the Study of Population (Sis-Aisp). On that occasion, Italian and international leading experts and scholars, mainly from academia, the National Institute of Statistics (Istat) and other national and governmental agencies, come together to present completed, planned, and ongoing research and to provide an opportunity for comparison across a broad overview of the issues currently debated about population and society. Conferences are based on parallel sessions, which in later editions have received 150 voluntary contributions of more than 25 subject areas.


The Population Days 2017 (the 12th edition) will be held in the city center of Florence, February 8-10. You can check here the map of the conference and social meeting locations. All meeting venues are close to the railway station and to the major Florentine monuments and historical sites. A bus service is also available.

The main venue of the Conference (registration desk, first plenary session, parallel sessions, general assembly) will be located in the rooms of Via Gino Capponi 9, one of the locations of the University of Florence in the city center.

The Welcome cocktail (Wednesday 8th) will be offered in the Salone delle Compagnie, Istituto degli Innocenti, in Piazza Santissima Annunziata 12. Before the cocktail party, we are glad to invite you for a guided tour to the Museo degli Innocenti.

The social dinner (Thursday 9th) will take place at Palazzo Borghese, Via Ghibellina 110/N.

More information about conference locations, travel and accomodation, are available in the Accomodation section.

The preliminary program of the conference will be on the conference website around December 31.
