The aim of the FORTE Network 2016 – 2018 is to strengthen the position of Swedish register-based research, partly through increased knowledge and shared experiences regarding adequate scientific approaches and partly by forming new long-term partnerships between significant research groups in Epidemiology and Demography, both at junior and senior levels.
The conference at Falsterbo kursgård in Skåne, 5-6 April 2017, is intended as a chance for Ph.D. candidates to present their research to a group of peers and senior researchers, as well as a forum where a lasting network with others interested in similar topics can be developed. The conference welcomes applicants from any of the social and medical sciences using register data to work on population issues. The conference will be organized as a series of sessions where participants present their papers and receive comments from discussants as well as from other participants.
The conference is primarily intended for Ph.D. students active within Scandinavian universities, but applicants from other countries are also welcome. Space is limited to a maximum of 12 participants to ensure adequate time for each paper.
Participation in the conference is free of charge, and the network will cover accommodation but not travelling costs.
Deadline for applications – 20 February, 2017.
Deadline for submission of final papers – 1 April, 2017.
