On Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at the Leyden Academy on Vitality and Aging in Leiden, the conference 'Care for and social well-being of older migrants' takes place. This is an initiative of the IMISCOE Standing Committee Ageing Migrants (click here for more information).

The 2018 NVD Poster Award was presented to Ilya Kashnitsky (Centre on Population Dynamics, CPop) for his poster “Regional Population Structures at a Glance”. In his poster Ilya presented an approach of color coding, in which the position of an element in a three-dimensional array of data is represented with a single color. To illustrate the technique he addressed the question of population ageing. The code for this data visualization approach is available at https://github.com/ikashnitsky/compare-pop-eu-us.

During the annual Dutch Demography Day, held on November 28, 2018, the Board and members of the Netherlands Demographic Society appointed Nico van Nimwegen and Frans Willekens Honorary Members of the NVD.
