Dutch Demography Day 2015

Wednesday 25 November 2015
Academiegebouw Utrecht


On Wednesday 25 November 2015, the Netherlands Demographic Society (NVD) is organizing the 8th Dutch Demography Day in the Academy Building of Utrecht University. At the Demography Day 2015 the most recent findings in the broad and interdisciplinary field of population studies will be presented. The scientific program of the Dutch Demography Day 2015 offers great opportunities for demographers, economists, sociologists, geographers, psychologists, epidemiologists, historians, and other professionals who work in this exciting field to present and discuss their work.

 During the plenary session Dr. Tomáš Sobotka (Vienna Institute of Demography, Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital) will give a keynote presentation on “European fertility: continuity and reversals”. The scientific program of the Dutch Demography Day 2015 comprises several rounds of both English and Dutch language parallel sessions and a special Poster session.

Call for abstracts has been closed

As usual, the Dutch Demography Day addresses the full range of the interdisciplinary field of population studies. Participants will be informed by mid-September at the latest if their abstract has been accepted for presentation in one of the parallel sessions or in the poster session. The decision of the organizing committee is final. Participants may choose to present a poster. They may also indicate a (binding) language preference.
