European Population Conference is the largest European conference for population research. Under the theme "Population, diversity and inequality" over 900 participants will present and discuss around 500 papers and 250 posters. 

Many demographers from the World Population (POP) Program will present latest demographic research on the links between education and issues such as quality of life, health, fertility, and the ability to adapt to climate change, and be chairing sessions. As part of the Wittgenstein Centre, latest research and publications are also presented at our conference booth. 

The conference will take place between 6-9 June 2018 in Brussels, Belgium and is organized by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
