We warmly invite all researchers and policy makers working in population and related fields to submit an abstract of your recent research for presentation in an oral or poster session.
The scientific programme of the Conference will be created from abstracts submitted to the Call for Papers by the 15 May 2021 deadline. IPC 2021 is a general population conference, and research in all relevant thematic areas and from a wide range of disciplines is welcome. All abstracts must be submitted online via the IPC2021 submission website selecting one of the conference themes that is closest to the topic of the paper as well as one or more keywords to help assign the abstract to appropriate reviewers. Individuals can submit no more than 2 abstracts.
The Conference Organizers have added COVID-19 and its impact as a cross-cutting theme of the conference. We encourage submissions on any aspect of the pandemic including, for example, measuring its effects and the social and economic disruptions that it has and will create: discrimination and a possible sharpening of inequities, and the differential vulnerability or resilience of specific groups that affect human welfare through population processes. Those submitting abstracts relating to the pandemic may submit to any of the conference themes selecting COVID-19 as a key word.
To help schedule the online sessions, submitters will be asked to indicate the time-zone in which they will be at the time of their presentation. If their paper is selected, they will be expected to make themselves available at a reasonable hour (between 8:00 and 20:00 in their local time) and will have the option to select additional, earlier or later time slots when they are able to present (which will help in creating interregional sessions).
Submissions must include a short, 200-word abstract and an extended (2-4-page) summary describing the topic including the theoretical focus, data, research methods, and expected findings. All submissions will be reviewed by 2 anonymous experts on the topic area. Theme conveners will select abstracts for inclusion in the programme, based on these reviews and the studies’ relevance/appropriateness for sessions created in the theme.
