ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON FORMAL DEMOGRAPHY

The Fifth Annual Workshop on Formal Demography took place on June 3-7, 2019, at the UC Berkeley Campus. We have applied for a renewal grant and hope to know in time to offer a 6th Annual Program, which we have tentative scheduled for June 8-12, 2020.  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 has consisted of two parts. The first part is a 3-day workshop on formal demographic methods. Trainees 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.

•Each year there is a special emphasis topic (to be determined).

•The application period will likely begin in early 2020 with a deadline of early March.

We encourage you to download the Flyer for the 2019 Workshop in Formal Demography flyer for the program and distribute to interested parties.

•For any questions, please write to Dr. Leora Lawton, Executive Director, Berkeley Population Center, popcenter@demog.berkeley.edu.
