The 3rd Demographics2014 Workshop, Lisbon Portugal

11-14 June 2014


International Conference on

Demographic Analysis and Research

Model building and applications

New deadline for Abstract submission

We are pleased to announce the Demographic Analysis and Research International Workshop (Demographics 2012)

The rapid improvements last 60 years in science and especially in medicine, biology and the related fields gave rise to better conditions of life leading to a higher life span. Improvement also came in the way we cope with the nature and the natural phenomena. Demography and demographic analysis and research grow rapidly along with the other scientific fields and especially the quantitative branches of mathematics, statistics and more recently the computing methods and techniques. The new methods and techniques along with the classical qualitative aspects of demography tend to straighten the theoretical approaches and lead to various applications in the same or in other scientific fields including social and economic sciences, insurance and finance thus improving the social welfare of the countries. The research now is more interdisciplinary and the aim of the Workshop on Demographics 2012 is to attract people from the academia and practice thus closing the gap between theory and applications. Presentations expressing the state-of-the art will be organised.

Quantitative Methods in Demography Workshop and Tutorial

The Quantitative Methods in Demography Workshop and Tutorial (QMDWT) is focused on the data analysis and applications of demographic data and mainly population, death and life table data. Models, methods and techniques of application are given along with the appropriate computer programs.

All the QMDWT participants will receive a copy of the computer programs used and related documentation.

  1. Preliminaries. Models and modeling (Gompertz, Weibull, Logistic, Lee-Carter, Heligman-Pollard, Brass, Stochastic,...)
  2. The stochastic theory and related models and modeling
  3. Demographic data and data analysis
  4. Fitting non-linear regression analysis to data (Programs and Excel presentations)
  5. Life expectancy estimates by using life tables and other methods
  6. Applications to specific cases (The applications include more than 35 countries)

The conference participants may subscribe to the Quantitative Methods in Demography Workshop and Tutorial (QMDWT) free of charge.

For non-conference participants 150 EUR fees apply for early registration (before 30 March 2012).
Special rates apply for students.

As the number or participants in the QMDWT is limited please subscribe as early as possible by filling the QMDWT registration form and return it by email to:
