ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON FORMAL DEMOGRAPHY

The Fourth Annual Workshop on Formal Demography will take place on June 4-8, 2018, here at the UC Berkeley Campus. Funded by NICHD R25HD083136 and co-sponsored by the Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA) and the Berkeley Population Center, this annual workshop consists of two parts. The first part is a 3-day workshop on formal demographic methods. Trainees will learn a variety of methods and applications with a hands-on active-learning approach. The next two days, Thursday and Friday, is a conference, with presentations by leading demographers. 

•We seek advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, assistant professors and other researchers, including more senior researchers interested in expanding their field of expertise.

The special emphasis topic will be mortality.

We are now finalizing the program and details regarding the Fourth Annual Formal Demography Workshop. Check back for updates. 

The Workshop will be held at the Faculty Club in central Campus, a few minutes walk from the Graduate Hotel and the lodgings at the Women's Faculty Club.
