The 2018 Program Committee of the Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS), co-chaired by Robert Hummer and Allison Aiello of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, invites submissions to our 4th annual interdisciplinary population health research conference, entitled “Pushing the Boundaries of Population Health Science: Social Inequalities, Biological Processes, and Policy Implications.” The Program Committee encourages submissions that highlight the promise of interdisciplinary population health science and action that can improve population health across the life course. Submissions from postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, clinical students and trainees are especially encouraged. For more details about the submission requirements click here.
Groups of individuals are invited to submit panels that will present original research or engage in innovative discussions that push the boundaries of population health science, practice, theory, methods, student training, or technological innovations (or a combination of these) around a significant issue relevant to the conference theme. Note that work presented in these panels should not yet be published. All proposed panels should include a moderator and 3-4 presenters. The IAPHS annual meeting is aimed at fostering cross-pollination of ideas among panel members and an interdisciplinary audience. Panels should not be comprised of presenters from a single academic discipline. For an example of interdisciplinary panels from the 2017 conference, see http://ipsr.ku.edu/pophealth/agenda.shtml.
Individuals or co-authored teams are welcome to submit an original abstract for consideration on the program as a poster presentation. Posters may present original research, practice, theory, methods, new ideas on student training, or technological innovations.

We are pleased to announce the Workshop on the economics of aging titled “Cross-Country Analysis of Retirement, Health, and Wellbeing” held at the University of Southern California on Oct 29 – 30, 2018, and a related special issue of the Journal of the Economics of Ageing. The objective of the workshop is to explore the economics of aging from a cross-country perspective. The workshop will bring together researchers to present recent empirical work using data from the HRS-family of surveys. We welcome the submission of empirical and policy papers and encourage the use of the Harmonized Data files and concordance information from the Gateway to Global Aging Data.
Interested authors are invited to submit a 1-page abstract by April 1, 2018 to email@example.com. The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by May 15, 2018. Completed draft papers will be expected by September 30, 2018. Details about topics and travel here.
