    O3S: Open Scholarship for the Social Sciences

    SocArXiv will host the second O3S: Open Scholarship for the Social Sciences symposium October 18-19, 2018 at University of Maryland, College Park. O3S (a) highlights research that uses the tools and methods of open scholarship; (b) brings together researchers who work on problems of open access, publishing, and open scholarship; and (c) facilitates exchange of ideas on the development of SocArXiv.
    The symposium will feature two keynote speakers: Elizabeth Popp Berman, associate professor of Sociology at University at Albany, SUNY; and April Hathcock, Scholarly Communications Librarian at New York University.

  • Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR)
    October 22, 2018 - October 25, 2018
    Rostock, Germany

    In this 4-days course the participants will be introduced to the concepts of multistate models and will learn how to estimate the essential quantities in the two most frequently encountered data situations: Event-histories, for which the exact times of transitions are known, and panel data, where observations are only made in (more or less) regular intervals, leading to interval-censored data.
    The course will start with a brief recap of standard survival analysis on which many of the concepts in multistate modeling are based. Moving beyond two-state models the core concepts will be introduced. Besides the estimation of the key parameters, the transition intensities, derived quantities, such as expected lengths of stay in particular states, will be discussed. Selecting and validating well-fitting models, assessing uncertainty of estimates and illustrative presentation of results will also be covered.
    The course will be a mix of lectures and computer practicals using the statistical software R.

  • Administrative Data Research Facilities (ADRF) Network
    November 13, 2018 - November 14, 2018
    Washington, DC

    Our 2018 conference builds on last year’s successful inaugural event which drew nearly 150 participants from academia, government, the private sector, think tanks, and other organizations to advance administrative data use in social science research. This year, the conference program has been expanded to two full days and will focus on innovation in administrative data for social science. The conference will serve as a forum to share groundbreaking work and promote interdisciplinary and cross-sector dialogue that will shape the future of the social sciences.

  • University of Ghana
    December 5, 2018 - December 8, 2018
    Accra, Ghana

    The year 2018 marks sixty years since the First All-African Peoples' Conference (AAPC) was held in Accra, Ghana, to galvanize support for independence movements across the continent and nurse the seeds of Pan-Africanism among African peoples at home and abroad.  For the purposes of memorializing the significance of the series of meetings that came to be called the AAPC, the Institute of African Studies (IAS), University of Ghana, in collaboration with other organizations plans to commemorate this historic event by providing a platform for reflecting on the challenges facing Global Africa in order to revisit the unfinished business of the 1958 Conference. This was the business of the liberation of Africa and a transformation of relations in Africa.

  • UC-Berkeley Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging-CEDA and the USC/UCLA Center for Biodemography and Population Health
    February 22, 2019 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
    University of California-Berkeley

    Co-sponsored by the UC-Berkeley Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging-CEDA and the USC/UCLA Center for Biodemography and Population Health, and following workshops held on this topic at USC and Berkeley in 2016, 2017, and 2018, this upcoming workshop is designed to share leading research methods and findings on comparative patterns of adult mortality, mortality determinants, and risk factors in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).
    The goal is to build a robust evidence base for understanding the drivers of cross-national mortality and health expectancy patterns, especially in populations with unusually high or low adult mortality.  The newly expanded availability of longitudinal HRS-type surveys in LMICs make this an opportune time to gather a network of researchers using such data to study mortality patterns and determinants, in order to share innovative methods, new results, and ideas for the most promising research agenda going forward.
