Call for Papers: European LFS/SILC User Conference

European Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) and European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC)

DwB partner GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat, is organising its European User Conference in Mannheim, Germany, on 21 and 22 March 2013.

Researchers of all disciplines (e.g. economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, and sociology) who use either EU-LFS or EU-SILC microdata are invited to participate and to submit an abstract through the e-form available at: http://www.gesis.org/en/events/conferences/european-user-conference-3/submission-form/.

Substantive topics may include, among others, all aspects of the European labour market, living conditions, migration, income inequalities, poverty and social exclusion. Methodological topics may include e.g. questions of data quality, cross-national and inter-temporal comparability, and statistical modeling. All presentations must be comparative and include data from at least two countries.

Abstracts should not be longer than 1000 words. The abstract should be informative, clearly state the research question, indicate the dataset(s) used and the countries analyzed. The submitters will be notified by 15 January 2013, whether their paper is accepted for presentation or not.

Deadline for submission of abstracts (1000 words maximum): 31 October 2012
