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 on issues relating to the population and society with a multidisciplinary approach. Official languages are Italian and English.
The latest edition had around 250 participants who presented about 200 contributions within more than 30 parallel sessions and 2 poster sessions.



The 13th edition of the Population Days will take place at Bocconi University, in Milano, on January 24-26, 2019, specifically:

Parallel and poster sessions will take place at Velodromo (accessible from Piazza Sraffa, ground floor).

The first Plenary Session on Thursday January 24 will take place at the Aula Magna in Via Gobbi, two-minutes walk from Velodromo.

Coffee breaks and lunch buffets during the parallel sessions will be offered in the foyer of Velodromo (at the ground floor).

The Welcome Cocktail will be held on Thursday January 24, at Palazzo Clerici, a charming historical palace located in the heart of Milan, in Via Clerici 5,  from 19:00 to 21:30. During the cocktail party, it will be possible to visit the Tiepolo's fresco in the main room of the palace.

The Social Dinner will be held on Friday January 25, at the foyer of the Bocconi Grafton building, in via Rontgen 1, at 20:00. Before the dinner, at 19:00, we are glad to invite you to a guided tour of The Bocconi Art Gallery (BAG), located in the same building.
