MPIDR Symposium on Digital Demography (Rostock, 10/17-10/18/18)

Posted: 10/8/2018 (Conference)

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR), in partnership with the IUSSP Panel on Big Data and Population Processes, is organizing and hosting the first Symposium on Digital Demography (Rostock, October 17-18, 2018).

This event brings together prominent scholars in Demography, Sociology, and Computational Social Sciences. It serves as a forum for discussion of the direction and latest advances in the field, as well as an opportunity to develop collaborative initiatives in research and training.

Digital Demography is an emerging field that focuses on 1) using our digital breadcrumbs and new forms of data collection made possible by digital technologies in order to measure and predict demographic change; 2) evaluating the implications of the digital revolution for demographic behavior and the well-being of people.

The symposium marks the launch of the new MPIDR Lab on Digital and Computational Demography, headed by MPIDR director and CSDE regional affiliate Emilio Zagheni. CSDE Science Core Director Matt Hall is a featured speaker.

If you would like to attend the symposium, please register by October 12 at the latest by sending an e-mail to Annett Döpke (sekzagheni@demogr.mpg.de).
