Wolfgang Lutz, Interim Deputy Director General for Science, and Guillaume Marois, Research Scholar in Multidimensional Demographic Modeling Research Group, are attending the 9th World Congress of the International Microsimulation Association (IMA) hosted by the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) in Vienna, Austria.
The IMA Congress aims to share knowledge and experience concerning developing and using microsimulation models. It will be of interest to creators and users of microsimulation models in international organizations, governments, academia, and the private sector. The conference will include over 150 presentations covering a broad range of microsimulation topics, methods, and applications.
Wolfgang Lutz, who is a leading academic in the field of population and sustainable development is invited to deliver a keynote speech on World population projections. His scientific interests lie in the population forecasting, population-development-environment interactions, and on introducing education as a standard demographic dimension in addition to age and sex.
Guillaume Marois will deliver a presentation on Demographic and labor force impacts of future immigration flows into Europe: does the region of origin matter? based on a specific population microsimulation projection model (QuantMig-Mic) for European countries that includes place of birth as a source of heterogeneity for other components that could affect population size, age structure, and economic dependency ratios.
