As part of this year’s Australian Population Conference in Canberra, the ANU School of Demography is organising the first DEMO-ECR symposium as a pre-conference event.
The main objective of this symposium is to create a relaxed and welcoming environment where junior researchers can share their works-in-progress and thoughts with their peers.
All fields of demography are welcomed, as well as all related areas of population studies. Theoretical as well as empirical papers in, but not limited to, the following topics are encouraged: families, fertility, sexual and reproductive health, internal and international migration, mobility, ageing, life course, inequality, health, historical demography, mortality, and methodological approaches.
The symposium program also includes development talks on “job market after PhD” and “500 words everyday” specifically tailored to postgraduate students. In addition, social activities will be organised in the afternoons and evenings.
This will be an opportunity to present without worries, free from the pressure an ECR might feel at big international/national conferences full of well-established researchers. We encourage everyone to try new things and be bold; we love unconventional ways of presenting research, and most importantly, we support fun. Because demography is fun!
Come and join the network of DEMO-ECR!
