The Forte EpiDem network for epidemiology and demography, coordinated by Jonas Björk, will be holding a two-day conference for PhD students in Höllviken April 12 – 13. The conference is on the same format as the Mölle conferences held by the Research School in Economic Demography at the Centre for Economic Demography in Lund. For those unfamiliar to this format, it is a meeting where 10 – 12 PhD candidates are selected to present their work in a non-confrontational, constructive atmosphere where they receive ample time to present and discuss each paper (~50 minutes per paper). A number of senior researchers from throughout Scandinavia are invited to comment on the papers, which raises the level and increases the depth of the discussion.
The network covers all costs associated with the conference (food, lodging, etc.), but travel costs must be covered by the home institution.
Submission/application deadline – 20 February, 2018
Organizing committee: Jonas Björk, Kirk Scott, Siddartha Aradhya.
Please spread this information to relevant PhD candidates.
